IT’S THE TEACHES OF PEACHES!
I love peaches. They’re the fucking lion of the fruit kingdom. Peaches are probably my desert island food. I have an appallingly low number of recipes using peaches, which are (in order of most bangable to least):
Okay, so there’s just two. But they’re both REALLY good. And here’s a third one!I heard about these being a thing from my friend Liz. She ate them at a wedding and the next day I went and bought all of the fixings and have had them every day since (yes, that’s three days in a row). They’re INCREDIBLY messy, but extremely delicious and worth it. This *might* be my favorite way to eat peaches, except for all of the other ones.
S’MEACHES (s’mores x grilled peaches)
- 1 package of graham crackers (honey-free if preferred)
- 1 bar of dark chocolate/vegan chocolate of choice
- 1 package of vegan marshmallows (Dandies!)
- 2-3 peaches, sliced
You can choose to either a) broil the peaches and marshmallows b) grill the peaches and toast the marshmallows over a grill
A note about slicing peaches: if you’re grilling on the grill, I recommend just halving them. The s’mores end up peachy and drippy, but delicious. If you’re roasting, the peaches can be sliced as thinly as you like.
IF BROILING: turn on the broiler. Place peaches on an oven-proof pan or cookie sheet. Broil for 5 minutes or until the edges start to get burnt and the sugar in the peaches is caramelizing. Throw several marshmallows on the pan and broil until golden brown (this takes about 10 seconds, so keep an eye on them!). Remove and build your s’more: take a square of graham cracker, layer on a couple squares of chocolate, smoosh on a melted marshmallow, then top with a roasted peach and another graham cracker. Repeat with as many as you can fit in your belly.
IF GRILLING: simply heat up a grill to high, take halved peaches and brush lightly with canola oil, place face down and grill for about 5 minutes or until lightly charred. Follow steps for building s’mores as listed above!
