Hey, everyone! Who’s in the mood for a sweet treat? I know that I am ALWAYS in the mood for dessert. However, I’m no fancy chef so the desserts that I make need to be made with simple ingredients and easy instructions yet still taste like they came from a bakery. This pineapple showoff dessert meets all of this criteria. Have you ever made a crushed pineapple dessert? Boy oh boy, if you have not you need too! This stuff is super sweet, creamy, and dreamy.
Now, I can’t speak for my family but from my careful observation, I could tell that they absolutely loved this pineapple showoff dessert. Everyone had two slices of the stuff.
My husband even took a few squares to work with him the next day to share with his co-workers. He told me that they wanted the recipe to take home to their wives. I guess it is safe to say that this pineapple dessert truly is a “showoff”.
You guys, if you are fans of pineapple, graham cracker crumbs, and whipping cream, this dessert is for you. Wow! Just wow. I cannot believe how delicious this yummy pineapple showoff dessert it. Did I mention that it is easy to make, too? The name of this confection is so fitting. It really does “showoff” in comparison to other desserts. Shoot, I’d eat this over chocolate cake! Now, that’s saying a lot because folks don’t generally pass up a slice of chocolate cake…at least I don’t!
