Banana Splits On A Stick

This fun dessert is a relatively healthy, kid-friendly spin on a classic. Simply leave bowls of chopped up some bananas, strawberries, and other favourite fruits (or even marshmallows), wooden skewers and a bowl of melted chocolate. You can even invite your BBQ guests to help you make the easy treats by threading wooden skewers with sliced bananas, pineapple chunks, and halved strawberries. Then roll the loaded skewers in melted chocolate and sprinkle with optional chopped nuts.

Piña Colada Ice-Cream Sandwiches

If you like piña coladas, you’re sure to love these piña colada ice-cream sandwiches made for grown-ups. Fresh pineapple rings are soaked in coconut rum, then stuffed with ice cream and dipped in melted chocolate and toasted coconut flakes.

Strawberry Shortcake Ice Cream Bars

Strawberry shortcake ice cream bars are the perfect sweet treat for hot days. Coat your strawberry ice cream with crunchy sugar cookies and strawberry pieces. To make it even more refreshing, freeze your strawberries in advance and even have the options of adding more variations of frozen fruits. Your options are endless for this BBQ treat as you can even get your guests to DIY, saving you some prep time!

No-Bake Brownies

Been to busy prepping for your BBQ party and forgot about the desserts? Cheat a little and make these 15-minute no-bake brownies! It is easy to make and simply uses regular ingredients such as sweetened condensed milk, unsweetened chocolate, graham cracker crumbs and walnuts that you can easily find in any supermarket. No one will ever know you cheated a little here thanks to its awesomely fudgy taste. Top it off with your favourite chopped nuts or use crushed candy cane bits for that cherry on top.

Cornflake Cookies

With only 10-minutes and three ingredients (butterscotch morsels, creamy peanut butter and Corn Flakes cereal), these cookies come together quickly and easily. The only equipment you need is a microwave or a stove to melt the peanut butter and butterscotch chips, and a refrigerator to chill the cookies. Then, serve them to your guests chilled straight from your from the refrigerator for a somewhat healthy dessert during the hot summer BBQ party!
