Grilled Summer Desserts You Have to Make

June 9, 2014

The grill is not just for cooking savory dishes, it's great for sweets too.  When fruit, cake, or pie dough hit the grill, the natural sugars caramelize and intensify in flavor.  Desserts can be as simple as grilled fruit drizzled with honey and served with whipped cream or as elaborate as sweet pizzas topped with ricotta cheese and chocolate.  If you've never experimented with desserts on the grill, this is the summer to try it.
