Directions:
Combine chocolate and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat at 50% power for 2 minutes; stir, then microwave at 30-second intervals until completely melted. Whisk in the cocoa and 1 C sugar until smooth. Microwave the mixture on full power for 5 minutes, stopping to whisk occasionally. (Don't worry if mixture looks grainy - continue to cook and whisk until smooth.) Add 1 C half and half and microwave on full power until smooth and slightly fudgy - 2 minutes. Move to a bowl and cover to keep warm. In a separate bowl, fold the 2 T of half and half and the 2 T of sugar into the mascarpone, cover and refrigerate. Preheat grill to medium. Brush the cake slices with oil and grill for 1-2 minutes per side. Brush the pineapple lightly with oil and grill until marked, about 1 minute per side. Top the cake with slices of pineapple, a scoop of mascarpone cream and hot fudge. Garnish with coconut and/or nuts if desired.
