Happy hour meets dessert in this kinda boozy, totally beachy treat. You’ll soak pineapple rounds in coconut rum, then use them to sandwich coconut ice cream. Freeze ’em up, then finish them with a white chocolate and coconut flake dip. We recommend serving with a maraschino cherry on top and Jimmy Buffet on the side.
