Sweet Finds: Grilled Desserts

May 22, 2012, 11:26 am  Posted by Lark
 

Ah, Memorial Day weekend, the un-official kick-off to summer. I like to think that if Memorial Day were a Venn diagram, the two primary circles would be Friends and Food, and the center overlapping section would be Cookouts.

 

Cookouts go hand in hand with grilling, and many of you are talented grilling pros—you roast chickens and flip burgers and do magical things with steak, all whilst hovering over a sizzling grill. I, however, am no grilling pro. I’m a vegetarian. At my best, I grill veggie patties, maybe. If grilling and I were in a Venn diagram, there would be no overlapping middle section.

 

The grill and I weren’t on bff terms…until now. I decided I would find a new way to love the grill, to find a common denominator for the two of us to agree upon. Enter: GRILLED DESSERTS.

 

Yes! You heard me! Grilled desserts! This Memorial Day weekend, as you create something incredible on the grill, don’t limit yourself to the main course—say hello to the sweet recipes listed below and elevate your basic Grill Master status to wildly acclaimed Grill God(dess) status.

 

And to those of you vegetarians who, like me, used to simply eat whatever veggie patty someone would hand you at Memorial Day cookouts of yore, you no longer need stand idly by whilst meat-lovers tame the flames. Carpe grilling diem, friends: grill yourselves some dessert.

 

Thanks to the talented grill gods and goddesses mentioned below for inspiring us with their delicious creations.
