Grilled Desserts

Everything on the grill tastes so delicious so why just grill for dinner! Go for the whole shebang. It’s such easy cleanup too. Here’s a few easy and delicious recipes…

 

 

Grilled Banana Splits

Ingredients

  • Banana
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Ice cream (your favorite flavor)
  • Toppings (caramel, whipped cream, sprinkles, hot fudge, etc)

Directions

  1. Preheat the grill for high heat.
  2. Spray 4 sheets of aluminum foil, large enough to wrap bananas, with cooking spray.
  3. Slice the peel of the banana from stem to bottom, while slicing the banana inside lengthwise. The bananas can be cut into slices instead if you like, (while still in the peel) for easier handling later.
  4. Carefully open the banana just wide enough to place the meltable toppings(marshmallow, etc) inside the peel with the banana.
  5. Wrap the bananas with the aluminum foil and place on the grill or directly in the coals of a fire. Leave in long enough to melt the toppings, about 5 minutes. Unwrap bananas, open the peels wide, and eat with a spoon.
