Grilled Desserts, the grand finale.


I have to admit, when I think of grilling, my mind brings up wonderful images of thick steaks, marinated fish and slightly charred vegetables.

Why is it that I don't cook my deserts more often on the grill? In my effort to start thinking outside the box with my outdoor cooking I wanted to post this amazing grilled bananas recipe.

I hope you enjoy it!


Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 13 minutes


Ingredients:
• 2 ripe bananas, peeled
• 6 slices pound cake (1/2 inch thick cut into 1 inch squares)
• 2 medium ripe nectarines or peaches
• 6 whole strawberries, stemmed
• 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
• 1 5-ounce can evaporated milk (2/3 cup)
• 2/3 cup sugar
• 1/4 cup butter or margarine


Preparation:
To prepare sauce, melt chocolate chips and butter or margarine over low heat in a small saucepan. Add in the sugar and slowly add the evaporated milk. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat and stir for 8 minutes. Remove and set aside. Remove seeds from peaches or nectarines and cut the fruit into wedges. Slice the bananas and pound cake into 1-inch squares. Thread the peaches or nectarines, cake, and bananas alternately onto six 12-inch-long skewers. To each skewer add one strawberry.

Grill each kebab about 5 minutes or until cake is lightly browned, making sure to turn only once. To serve, push contents from skewers onto dessert plates and lightly drizzle with warm chocolate sauce.
