Guest Blog Post from Anastasia Weis, owner Twisted Chocolate

As Father’s Day approaches, many of us are faced with the age old question – what to get our dad, husband, brother, friend, etc. for Father’s Day?  Some of us are lucky, and it’s as easy as gifting golf balls to the golf enthusiast, beer of the month subscription to the beer lover, or sports team t-shirt to the sports fanatic. For those who want to show Dad how much he’s loved in a different way, why not take the Father’s Day celebration  outside and grill Dad some great desserts for Father’s Day?  It’s summer, almost all men love hanging out by the grill, and with easy but delicious grilled dessert ideas, everyone can participate in making Dad a yummy end to a Father’s Day meal.
