You May Not Have Thought of This But We Did: How to BBQ Donuts

Keep Extras On Hand - This Dessert Will Blow You Away!

These days we are BBQ'ing almost every day. Most days I can make my entire meal on the grill but dessert has been an entirely new challenge. I was toying with the idea of fire and sugar (can we say YUM!) and was thinking about those warm and gooey Krispy Kreme donuts we all used to go bonkers over. I grabbed a package of glazed donuts one day and just decided to BBQ them. Net result? Pure magic! They had that warm and gooey quality I remember loving but also had a hit of smoke and char that made them a little extra special. I decided I would take it up a notch and see if I could coat them with a little extra sugar and get a bit more crunch on them. That extra hit of sugar did the trick. Topped with a scoop of ice cream and a sprinkling of salty peanuts they were the perfect backyard BBQ dessert. I've served them three times now and every single person has demanded seconds. The best part of this recipe?  It is is so quick and easy to make. Try them and make sure you keep an extra pack of donuts on hand - I guarantee you will need them!
