You can grill just about anything and it’ll come out great. I grilled donuts and they were fantastic. Twinkies are no exception to the rule. Grilled Twinkies take only minutes to cook, so they make for a very quick and easy dessert you can make after grilling burgers or hot dogs. The Twinkies get a bit of a nice crunchiness on the outside. They have a slight grill flavor to them. The insides stay creamy, delicious. As simple as they are, they are very good.

Grilled Twinkies taste just like toasted marshmallows. They’re surprisingly tasty and highly addicting.

My homemade Neapolitan ice cream teamed perfectly with the Twinkies. They were also great drizzled with a bit of chocolate syrup and topped with toasted chopped pecans. Yummy! For a slightly different variation, try cooking the Twinkies on cedar planks instead.

I grilled these Twinkies on my Weber Q 1200, a small portable grill that is also absolutely perfect for cooking at home for two. It heats up fast, and is more efficient than my big gas grill.

Also try my grilled banana sundae.
