So, yeah, the title pretty much reveals everything, but before I go into more detail, let’s just take in the picture, which is truly amazing.
These were Honeycrisp apples, which are also, ironically, my favorite apple. Why, you ask? Oooooh…. Ahhhhhhhh. YUM. So freaking good.
They’re the sweetest, have all the qualities I love in an apple—crunchy, crispy, juicy, and sweet—and, as an added bonus, are excellent for grilling.
We’ve tried grilling a variety of other apples, but these seem to hold up the best. We cooked these with indirect heat on our Weber Performer charcoal grill.
Please try this. Seriously. If you happen to be grilling anything at all, throw a few apples on there. I could seriously eat this entire plate of grilled apples right now.
This is fantastic as a side dish, which is what we frequently do, or as a dessert (perhaps served with some ice cream or whipped cream?).
So go make this, your family and friends will thank you, and you can take all the credit. Yes, I have been known to allow my kids to eat sugar with dinner…if it has something to do with a fruit or a vegetable.

Serving Size: 1 serving
Nutrition Facts: calories 163 kcal, servingSize 1 serving
- 3 honeycrisp apples (cut into 3/4 inch circle slices)
- 3 tablespoons of melted butter
- 3 teaspoons of cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons of honey
- Brush your apple slices with the melted butter. On both sides.
- Grill your apples indirectly for about 6 minutes on each side, or until grill marks magically appear.
- As soon as you pull them off the grill, sprinkle the top of the apples with cinnamon, and drizzle honey over all of them. I SAY use 2 tablespoon, but the honey police will NOT arrest you if you decide to use more. Just saying.
What to do with lots of fresh apples?
The best apple for grilling is one with a firm texture; depending on your preference for tart or sweet, choose a Granny Smith (tart) or a Fuji, Piata®, Pink Lady, or Honeycrisp (sweet); these apples are great for grilling because their hardy texture will withstand high heat.
Can you broil an apple?
Apples are popular for snacking when they are dried. They can also be pureed and used in pies, crumbles, and other dishes. They can also be pickedled to make cider, which is one of the best ways to use up surplus apples. They can also be juiced and baked.
