Summer means grilling every week! As I’ve mentioned before, in Wisconsin, we tend to grill year round, regardless of the weather. But there’s nothing quite like sitting outside and grilling when the weather is nice. I tend to be really boring when it comes to grilled meals and default to the same half a dozen standards over and over again. When I’m planning meals, it doesn’t even occur to me to make grilled desserts.
But a grill is an extremely versatile cooking tool. It can (and should!) be used for preparing any variety of summer staples and treats, including grilled desserts. Thankfully, there are a lot of creative people out there who have put together innovative, delicious grilled desserts ranging from simple grilled fruit to s’mores to pie to cobbler. Happy grilling!
And yes, I realize that 30 days of grilled desserts is total overkill. A week of grilled desserts is more than enough to create a nice summer rotation. But I continued the 30 days food theme without even thinking about it. You should in no ways feel obligated to try even half of these recipes in a given summer.

Sweet! (Pardon the pun.) Some great ideas here. I wonder if you could turn Martha’s marshmallow sticks into a twist on traditional s’mores…
These look SO good. I definitely have this saved for later. I can’t wait to make some of these.
I’ve never actually grilled a dessert before, but this post is making me reconsider that. These look incredible!
These all look great, but that grilled desert pizza looks AMAZING! Yum!
I really wish grilling weren’t such a pain for us where we currently live – I’d love to try the grilled pineapple recipes!
My mouth is literally watering right now after reading this!!! I also need that grilled donut in my life, like ASAP!! haha…but really though I love this post and am pinning it for ideas in the future : )
These look so amazing! I’m pinning this for later! I love that I can make some delicious dessert without heating up the whole house! 🙂
Oh my goodness, these all look amazing! I especially like the look of the peachy strawberry pizza!
I LOVE Martha Stewart’s reinvention of s’mores on the grill! I made a less gourmet version of that recipe one year for a party–I threw a skillet filled with chocolate chips and topped with marshmallows on to the grill, and it was a big hit!
OMG Rose, I’m on a diet! And these look soo delicious, what a selection! I want to try out at least a few, well, on my cheat days 😀
Thanks for sharing <3 pinning for later!
Since it’s grilled it’s healthy right? Haha I’ve been wanting to try some peach cobbler on my Traeger!
I LOVE this idea. So fun and unique. The grilled donuts look especially yummy.
THESE LOOK FABULOUS! I love making those banana boats! But I have never thought of all these other grilled desserts. I honestly want to try them all!!

OMG – Where do I start – I think there are enough days left in the Summer to try each one of these!!! Delicious…
