Top 5 Grilled Desserts When people think of firing up the grill for a backyard barbecue or cook-out, their minds usually go first to meat and chicken dishes before anything else. Then, maybe next they travel onto ears of corn grilled to a nice char, or the creamy array of sides that normally accompany the rest of the meal.

But what is there to eat for dessert?

Summer desserts often rely on toothsome fresh watermelon or refreshing scoops of ice cream, but there is much more available than just that. Using the already heated grill as a way to prepare dessert is a summertime treat that should not be looked over.

Ripe, tender peaches are made even better (yes, somehow it is possible) with the addition of light brown grill marks and a drizzle of honey, and the usually delicious combination of pound cake and pineapple is transformed with the added flavor of just a bit of smoke.

With so many great grilled dessert recipes, it's a shame to turn off the old barbecue without throwing something sweet on it first. Read on for our top five grilled dessert recipes and be sure to tell us how you finish your summer BBQs in the comments below.
