No matter what type of Blackstone cooking surface you own, one thing’s for sure—dessert is always a must! While the savory possibilities are nearly endless, why not consider putting your griddle or grill to work for some sweet treats? Here are our top 7 Blackstone desserts you must try!
Top 7 Blackstone Desserts: Recipes You Must Try
Grilled Peaches with Honey and Mascarpone
Start by heating up your Blackstone griddle to medium temperature. While it's warming up, rinse and halve ripe peaches, taking out the pits. Place the peach halves on the griddle, with the cut side facing down, and cook them for roughly 2-3 minutes. You'll notice lovely grill marks forming.
Carefully flip the peaches using tongs, and now drizzle a bit of honey over the cut side. Let them cook for an extra minute, allowing the honey to slightly caramelize.
Once the peaches are tender and caramelized, take them off the griddle. Serve each peach half with a generous spoonful of creamy mascarpone cheese on top. The warmth of the peaches will softly melt the mascarpone, creating a delicious contrast to the smoky-sweet fruit.
Preheat your Blackstone griddle on medium heat. Take two tortillas and place a layer of chocolate chips on one of them. Sprinkle mini marshmallows on top of the chocolate. Put the other tortilla on top to create a quesadilla.
Put the quesadilla on the griddle and cook for approximately 2 minutes on each side. The tortillas should turn golden brown and crispy, and the chocolate and marshmallows should melt together to create a delightful, gooey texture.
Gently take the quesadilla off the griddle and let it cool for a moment before cutting it into wedges.
Cinnamon Sugar Grilled Pineapple
Preheat your Blackstone griddle to medium heat. While it's heating up, prepare fresh pineapple slices. Sprinkle them generously with a blend of cinnamon and sugar on both sides.
Place the pineapple slices on the griddle and cook for approximately 2-3 minutes per side. The goal is to achieve beautifully caramelized grill marks and a slightly softened texture.
Once the pineapple slices are perfectly grilled, remove them from the griddle and serve them while still warm. The heat from the griddle enhances the natural sweetness of the pineapple, and the cinnamon sugar adds a cozy and flavorful touch.
Blackstone Banana Split
Heat your Blackstone griddle to medium heat. As it warms up, prepare your ripe bananas by slicing them lengthwise.
Lay the banana halves on the griddle and cook for around 1-2 minutes on each side. You want them to turn a light golden color and get a slight caramelization.
Take the grilled banana halves off the griddle and put together your banana split. Position a few scoops of your preferred ice cream between the banana halves. Pour chocolate sauce generously over the ice cream, and remember to add a dollop of whipped cream on top. Finish it off with a sprinkle of chopped nuts for a delightful crunch.
Grilled Pound Cake with Berries and Balsamic Glaze
Start by preheating your Blackstone griddle to medium heat. While it's warming up, cut the pound cake into thick slices.
Put the pound cake slices on the griddle and cook them for about 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Aim for a light, toasty color, and a slightly crispy outside.
After grilling the pound cake slices, take them off the griddle. Place a mix of fresh berries, like strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries, on top of the grilled pound cake slices.
To finish, drizzle a balsamic glaze over the berries. The combination of sweet-tart berries and the flavorful, smoky pound cake makes for an elegant dessert with perfectly balanced flavors.
Griddled Nutella-Banana Crepes
Preheat your Blackstone griddle to medium heat. While it's heating up, mix together 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 2 eggs, 1 cup of milk, a pinch of salt, and 2 tablespoons of melted butter to create the crepe batter. Allow the batter to rest for approximately 15 minutes.
Once the griddle is ready, lightly grease it with butter or oil. Pour a small ladleful of the batter onto the griddle and use a spatula to spread it into a thin, even circle. Cook each side for about 1-2 minutes until the crepe turns golden brown.
Spread a generous amount of Nutella on one-half of the crepe and place banana slices on top. Fold the other half of the crepe over the filling, creating a half-moon shape.
Griddle the filled crepe for an additional 1-2 minutes on each side until the Nutella is warmed and slightly melted. Serve the crepe with a dusting of powdered sugar for a delightful dessert that combines the creaminess of Nutella with the sweetness of bananas.
Blackstone Grilled Apple Crisp Parfait
Begin by preheating your Blackstone griddle over medium heat. While it's warming up, get your apple filling ready. Peel, core, and dice 2-3 apples. In a bowl, mix the apples with 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and a pinch of nutmeg.
Spread the seasoned apples on the griddle and cook for approximately 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the apples become tender and slightly caramelized. Take them off the griddle and set aside.
In another bowl, combine 1 cup of granola and 1/4 cup of melted butter to make the crisp topping.
Construct the parfaits by layering the grilled apple filling, granola crisp topping, and your preferred choice of vanilla yogurt or whipped cream in serving glasses or bowls. Repeat the layers until you've used all the ingredients, finishing off with a dollop of yogurt or cream on top.
Blackstone's desserts are truly ingenious, skillfully combining an array of flavors and textures to create bites of pure delight.
