Looking for a Hawaiian dessert, help!

I have a party coming up this week with a hawaiian theme. We are serving polynesian pork for the entree. I am in desperate need to find a dessert for the occasion. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Thanks for the idea but we're looking for something more unique.

I would do some type of ambrosia with a piece of pound cake or plain butter cookie on the side.

One I like is macadamia nut pie, with or without coconut and homemade whipped cream.
And here's a link you might want to check out with lots of ideas.

Halve some pineapples, scoop out the flesh with a spoon. Drizzle some white rum like Bacardi and a sprinkle of brown sugar on top. Place the pineapple chunks back in the hollow fruits. Top with thickly whipped cream and toasted coconut shavings.

So add some type of liquor to the topping and set it on fire! Hawaiians are real big on fire.
