This is a quick and easy appetizer and the flavors blend together wonderfully. Serve with fresh fruit or gingersnaps as a dessert or with crackers as an appetizer.

Oh Sherry, this was so good. Needed a fast appy to serve at our Valentine Day get together when I realized I'd forgotten to make one and this was it. It went together so fast and easy. Looked great and tasted even better. A nice change from our regular brie. Loved the toasted coconut on top, tasted and looked great. I didn't have peanuts so used toasted slivered almonds and it was wonderful. The only thing I might do differant next time is maybe cut down on the amount of pineapple just because in the dish I used (a mini ceramic pie plate) it was a little crowded. This was enjoyed by everyone and not a bit was left over.

Fantastic!!!! The only thing I did differently was to add some of the pineapple juice to the mixture...made it sweet and bubbly!
