You can think of your grill as your outdoor kitchen. You can cook a main course, a side dish, a snack and even dessert on it! So don't limit your menu to heavy meat and sauces the next time you host a barbecue - get your creative juices flowing and satisfy any sweet tooth out there by preparing mouth-watering grilled desserts.

Here are some easy-to-follow grilled dessert recipes you absolutely must try:

Marshmallow Banana Boats

What you need:
  • 4 medium ripe bananas, unpeeled
  • 4 tsps. miniature marshmallows
  • 4 tsps. miniature chocolate chips
Carefully cut the peel of the banana about half an inch deep, leaving half an inch at both ends. Open the peel wider before filling with 1 tsp. marshmallows and 1 tsp. chocolate chips. Do the same with the rest of the bananas. Wrap the bananas with heavy-duty foil before cooking on a covered grill over medium-high heat for 8-10 minutes or until marshmallows are melted.

Fruity Campfire Cobbler

What you need:
  • 1 regular package yellow cake mix
  • 5 1/4 cups raspberry pie filling
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 1/4 cups water
Combine cake mix, oil and water thoroughly in a large bowl. Set aside. Line a large grill pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Add pie filling then top with cake mixture. Cook on a covered grill over low heat for 20-30 minutes. To ensure doneness, toothpick inserted should come out clean. Serve warm topped with vanilla ice cream if desired.

S'more Sweetstuff

What you need:
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups crushed graham crackers
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
In a small bowl, mix together graham crackers and butter to make the crust. Set aside. Line a large grill pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Press the graham cracker and butter mixture on to the bottom of the pan, pour milk over it, sprinkle with chocolate and butterscotch chips then top with marshmallows. Cook on a pre-heated grill over low heat for 12-15 minutes or until chips have melted.

Pineapple and Butterscotch Delight

What you need:
  • 2 small pineapples, peeled, cored and cut into 6 spears
  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup whipped cream
  • 1/2 cup plus 6 tbsps. butter
  • 2 tbsps. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • A dash of salt
Melt 6 tbsps. butter in a small saucepan then add sugar and nutmeg. Brush the pineapples with this mixture before cooking in a covered grill over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until pineapples are lightly browned. To make the sauce, melt the remaining butter in a small saucepan before adding brown sugar and whipped cream. Stir constantly and bring to a boil. Remove from heat before adding salt and vanilla extract. Pour sauce over grilled pineapples and serve with vanilla ice cream.
