Brown Sugar Grilled Peaches with White Chocolate Recipe

Brown Sugar Grilled Peaches with White Chocolate Recipe

When I decided to host a family barbecue, I was determined to create an original dessert I could take straight off the grill. It's absolutely divine, especially when topped with whipped cream or a scoop of peach ice cream. —Tonya Burkhard, Davis, Illinois
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 4 medium peaches, halved and pitted
  • 1/3 cup chopped white baking chocolate
  • 3 tablespoons chopped pecans
  • Whipped cream, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Add peaches, one half at a time, and toss to coat. Reserve remaining butter mixture.
