Well, this is just killing me.

I want to share this recipe with you guys soooooo much, but I’m using it as my entry into the Dole Cookoff! I’m also still working on the presentation, but the ingredients together? Spot. on.

Okay, I’ll at least spill that info. Pound cake. Grilled pineapple. Bananas. Jalapenos. Coconut. Stacked and whipped and simmered together before putting them all in one ridiculous dessert.

Ooh, I can’t wait to share this.

In the meantime, have you entered?! The grand prize is $25,000! I could finally pay off my school loans with that if I was being responsible….and if not, we could take the best vacation ever.

Have you ever made a sweet + spicy dessert? They’re kind of my new favorite thing, I think.
