Today was Day #10 of Chocolate and Coconut Theme Week, and the last full day of our trip in Hawaii (Maui). Following a quick chocolate field trip out to Lahaina, and a spin around the Kahului area of Maui in a search for new chocolates (see upcoming Lahaina and Kahului Chocolate Stories), we retired to the Coconut Grill restaurant and enjoyed a great dinner and a nice rich coconut dessert (Creme Coconut Brulee with Haupia (Coconut) ice cream, and pineapple puree. I ordered a side of chocolate fudge sauce, because... well, I think that requires no explanation. It was chocolate. This dessert was very rich, but it was a great dish for coconut dessert lovers.
