    3 tablespoons brown sugar
    1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

  Filling:
    1 1/2 pints pineapple sorbet, softened
    1 cup canned sweetened cream of coconut (such as Coco Lopez)
    4 teaspoons dark rum
    1/2 teaspoon imitation coconut extract
    3/4 cup (packed) sweetened shredded coconut
    2 pints vanilla frozen yogurt, softened

    1/2 large pineapple, trimmed, cored, thinly sliced

 blended. Freeze until semifirm, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour.
