Grilled Dessert Kabobs and a Giveaway!!
These Grilled Dessert Kabobs were inspired by FireWire and FlipKabob. Both supplied products for me to try. Opinions are, of course, entirely my own. This post may contain affiliate links which won’t change your price but will share some commission.
I’m more than a little obsessed with kabobs on the grill, so it was just a matter of time before I ventured into Grilled Dessert Kabobs. Both FireWire Grilling and FlipKabob sent me their best kabob products to try out (Thanks Guys!) so I knew it was high time for a kabob party.
My Dad just celebrated his 70th birthday with a big family brunch. My parents have 6 kids, I’m the youngest, so a family party for us is a lot like a big reunion. I offered to bring all of the goodies for a sweet kabob bar and it was such a hit!
For the kabobs, I decided to prep a bunch of fruits and sweets that I knew would hold up well on the grill. I cut up pineapple, peaches, mangoes, strawberries, oranges, and watermelon for the fruits. I also set out some cubed pound cake, glazed doughnut holes, and fudgy brownie bites.
I laid out the FireWire flexible skewers, double prong skewers, and the stainless skewers that came with the FlipKabob. Each guest was able to build their own dessert kabob with whatever goodies their heart desired.
They brought their kabobs out to me while I hung out grill-side. After a few minutes on each the grill, these tasty kabobs were ready to be consumed. I served some warmed chocolate sauce on the side for those who wanted their kabobs a little on the sweet side.
As for the kabob products? Here’s my review:
FireWire Stainless Steel Flexible Grilling Skewers: These rings fit way more food on them than any of the kabob skewers. I would save these for a night when I’m prepping a meal for my family. I can load up 2 of the rings and feed all of us! Another nice feature is that you can fill up the skewers and then fit them into a gallon bag for marinating. That means I can prep the kabobs in advance, have them marinating, and they’re ready for dinner with no work.
FireWire Double Prong Skewers: I LOVE these things! the double prongs means that I can fit everything on the skewer without dealing with the pesky conundrum of your ingredients spinning around when you try to flip the whole kabob on the grill. They are also marked on the ends so you can keep track of which skewer belongs to everybody.
FlipKabob: I was perplexed by this tool when it first arrived, but after doing a whole grill full of kabobs I can totally see it’s usefulness. The ends of the skewers slide right into the notches on the tongs and you can flip without dropping anything. The stainless skewers are included and work great. Bonus, I can totally see using these tongs to move around a whole pork butt on the smoker. I love multi-taskers! You can find them here at www.flipkabob.com.
