Grilled Fruit Skewers are a fun seasonal treat, and taste even better on top of ice cream! Give this simple dessert a try for your next backyard barbecue.
Whether you want to enjoy a light seasonal dessert, or if you’d rather join me for the sugar rush, grilled fruit skewers is something you will love to try!
First you’ll want to soak your skewers in water for a minute or two. This will help them not burn as easily. Then chop up your fruit of choice and insert them onto the skewers.
You’ll want to coat the fruit with something that will help it brown or caramelize.
You’ll want the grill burners to be nice and hot before you place the fruit skewers onto the plates. You should be able to use a charcoal or gas burner grill to make this work.
You can let the fruit sit on the grill for about 2 minutes before flipping the skewers. After you’ve grilled both sides, they should be finished.
You don’t want to cook the fruit too long, or it tends to go too mushy. You just want it grilled long enough to bring out the flavors and leave small grill marks.
Then, if you are like me, you can slide the fruit off the skewer onto a bowl of vanilla bean ice cream. I then drizzled it with chocolate sauce and topped it with Heath Bar topping.
