The Best Desserts to Make on Your Grill
If you've ever been camping for the better part of a week, or have lost power for more than a few days at a time, you'll know that you can make nearly anything on your grill. And we mean anything—including dessert, which is good news for those who are firing up dinner on the grill tonight. You don't have to sacrifice a delicious homemade dessert because it's sweltering inside your kitchen. Grill one of these tasty recipes that will please your family and guests without even touching your oven dial.
While serving fresh fruit is one of the best ways to enjoy seasonal flavors, there's only so many times you can serve sliced fruit on its own. Take your fruit with you to the grill, where favorites like peaches are completely transformed by the charring heat of open flames. The fun doesn't stop at peaches, either: you can create delicious desserts using freshly grilled watermelon, peaches, nectarines, pineapple, pears, grapefruit, bananas, cherries, and cantaloupe.
Some of the best summertime memories are made with classic desserts—like the s'more, which tastes even better on the grill. There are a few sweet treats you can create on the grill, including our grilled banana splits, which feature caramelized fruit that elevates a scoop of ice cream in just a few minutes. You can also think of grilled desserts as more of an assembly job than anything else. Quickly grill one ingredient, like fresh brioche, and top with whipped cream and fresh berries for a dessert that's anything but boring.
