Grilled pineapple with dark chocolate is a simple, healthful dessert that isn’t loaded with fat and calories.  You can prep the pineapple ahead of time and after everyone has finished dinner throw it on the grill for a satisfying treat.  It only takes a minute to melt the dark chocolate and drizzle over the pineapple.  Be sure to use a dark chocolate with 70% or higher cacao for the most antioxidants.  Enjoy!
Take a fresh pineapple and cut off the top and bottom.
Using a serrated knife, cut off the rough skin.
Cut the pineapple into quarters.
 Cut off the core at an angle and slice each quarter in half lengthwise for 8 equal pieces.

Warm 1/4 cup honey with 1/8 cup water and brush on the pineapple.
Put some olive oil on a paper towel and lightly oil the grill.

About 4 minutes per side.
Take a 3.5 oz good quality dark chocolate bar  and break into pieces.
