Cinnamon Pecan Blooming Apples (Made on the BBQ)

Grilled blooming apples

This past long weekend we put our barbecue to VERY good use!

The kick off to warmer weather, always means the start of grilling season for our family.

We are out grilling as much as we can. Let’s be honest, who wants to slave over a hot stove when you can be outside enjoying the summer!

We use it for almost every meal and for every course .


Even dessert!

These blooming apples are the perfect ending to a summer time meal!

So easy to put together, and even work on your campfire!

Just don’t forget the vanilla Ice Cream!

  • 4 Apples of your choice
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 Tbsp sugar, 1 Tbsp sugar + 1/8 tsp nutmeg mixed together
  • 1/3 Cup chopped candied pecans
  • Caramel sauce for drizzling
  • Vanilla Ice cream
  1. Slice off the top ΒΌ of the apples and scoop out cores.
  2. Using a knife make a deep cut around the center of the apple. 
  3. Flip over apples and make narrow cuts all around, making sure to not cut through the bottom. In a small bowl, stir together melted butter and cinnamon, sugar and nutmeg . Brush apples all over with mixture.
  4. Wrap apples in foil and grill until tender, about 15 minutes. 
  5. Top with ice cream and drizzle with caramel.

(You can also, bake them in the oven at 375 for 30 minutes)
