Grilled Strawberries Over Ice Cream with Basil

This fun, fresh dessert takes the cake! Okay.. the ice cream! Our Grilled Strawberries Over Ice Cream with Basil is great on a hot summer day!

Grilled Strawberries Over Ice Cream with Basil


  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 pint of the biggest strawberries (leaves on)
  • 4 leaves of basil
  • Carton of your favorite vanilla ice cream


  1. In a mixing bowl, gently mix berries with balsamic vinegar.
  2. Place the brown sugar in a shallow bowl or rimmed plate. Roll each berry such that each one has a thick coat of brown sugar.
  3. On each skewer place about five strawberries. Roll the skewer through the brown sugar to ensure they are properly coated.
  4. Let the skewered strawberries set in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes before grilling.
  5. Grill each skewer for about 2 minutes on each side.
  6. Rub each ice cream dish with the basil (trust me, this step is crucial). Top the ice cream with the grilled strawberries.
