5 Desserts to Grill Up for Memorial Day

by Waverly Wilde

Whoever said, “Life’s short, eat dessert first,” was a genius. Who wouldn’t like to eat a sweet treat as the first course of every meal? And because Memorial Day is just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to bust out the grill (or get a new one) and make some tasty bites for loved ones. Yes, we’re talking about GRILLING desserts, not baking them! So, go ahead and make your friends and family a sugary surprise this Memorial Day weekend!


Grilled Summer Fruit Skewers

Looking for something easy, healthy, and refreshing to make for your fam? These grilled fruit kabobs are exactly what you’ve been searching for. This recipe calls for peaches, strawberries, and pineapple, but if you are craving different fruit, go ahead and swap them out! Mangoes, bananas, and watermelons would also be a good choice. It’s the simplest dessert ever - choose your fruit, grab your skewer, and get grilling!


Chocolate Dessert Wraps

If campfire s’mores are your jam, you’ll love this wrap! While there isn’t a graham cracker added into the mix, the recipe does call for marshmallows and chocolate, making this a fun twist on the fireside dessert. And if you are a big fan of peanut butter, be sure to slather some inside the tortilla! Of course, if you’re allergic or peanut butter is not your cup of tea, just leave it out. Add anything else you want to make this treat even better – we suggest a large dollop of whipped cream to really complete this masterpiece.


Grilled Pound Cake with Cherry Compote

While there are ways to grill cakes, cookies, brownies, and more, we recommend just purchasing some pound cake from the store to make this recipe go faster. With that pound cake, you’re going to brush melted butter on both sides and grill each of those sides for one minute before pouring a fruity sauce all over your it. Simple and delicious – just the way we like to make our desserts!


Dessert Pizza

It doesn’t matter if it’s savory or sweet, pizza is always a good idea - especially when it is covered in fruit!

Make the pizza dough ahead of time – then all you need to do is let it thaw before grilling. Flip it like a pancake and then add the honey, cheese, fruit and voila! You’ve got yourself a dessert pizza pie!


Grilled Pineapple with Nutella

What’s better than Nutella? Fruit covered in Nutella! In fact, anything smothered in Nutella would probably taste amazing, but let’s not get off topic now.

Grilled pineapple drizzled in Nutella is just what the doctor ordered when trying to satisfy that sweet tooth. Plus, you don’t need to feel guilty when over 50% of this dessert is fruit!


This Memorial Day, host a backyard party and make some sweet desserts for neighbors and friends. Of course, if you are looking for a grill, we’ve got just what you need at Aztec’s. Stop by today to find the perfect one that’ll help you make your tasty treats just right.
