5 Simple Summer Desserts You Can Make on the Grill

Cyd Converse

We live outside as much of the summer as we can. It's where we cook, where we dine, where we lounge and where we play too many rounds of cornhole.

When we're entertaining (which is often) I love offering up a sweet little dessert, but don't want to be stuck in the kitchen. That's where these simple summer desserts you can make on the grill come into play!

A good rule of thumb? Any dessert that can be wrapped in aluminum foil or made in a cast iron skillet is fair game for making on the grill instead of the oven.

Here you'll find just a few of our favorite summer dessert recipes perfect for making on the grill - from berries to caramel to ooey gooey s'mores - oh my!

1. Oatmeal Cookie Blueberry Peach Cobbler Recipe

This oatmeal cookie blueberry peach cobbler recipe is one of my very favorite summer desserts. Instead of using a typical baking dish, layer the ingredients in a well seasoned cast iron skillet and bake your cobbler on the grill with the lid closed. To make it even tastier, top each serving with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream for the ultimate summer treat.

2. Butter Pecan Skillet Cookie Recipe

Thick slices of butter pecan cookie made in a small cast iron skillet are topped with vanilla ice cream and a homemade pecan praline topping made with a simple combination of sugar, butter, cream and pecans. The result is sweet, salty and delicious! This butter pecan skillet cookie recipe will be a new favorite.

3. Skillet Brownies Recipe

Chewy skillet brownies are the best way get your chocolate fix in the summer. Make these brownies in a large skillet to share, or make them in mini skillets and serve up personal treats! Nothing beats a brownie with chewy edges. Making your brownies in the skillet is the secret to the perfect brownie edges.

4. S'mores Brownies Recipe

This s'mores brownies recipe is the completely irresistible summer dessert you didn't know you needed in your repertoire. These brownies are the definition of ooey and gooey, which is perfect for s'mores brownies if you ask me. They stay fudgy and if you eat this hot you can just dip graham cookies right in the batter.

5. Blueberry Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie Recipe

This blueberry chocolate chip skillet cookie is definitely one our favorite summer dessert recipes. You’ve got a chewy chocolate chip cookie, bursts of sweet blueberries, and a sweet and salty crumble on top. It's all baked in a skillet, complete with slightly crisp edges, and a soft melty middle. You'll love this one!
