Walking into the grocery store during summertime is such a treat. It just looks so bright and colorful. The produce section specially, is over flowing with berries, cherries, peaches, melons and so many fresh fruits (most of them are on sale too). My mind starts racing with ideas on different ways to use them and put a spin on the classic recipes. I’m thinking cocktails, pies, tarts, jams, salads etc. Today I’m making ‘Chocolate Grilled Peaches’ with a cereal crumble and sprinkles as toppings. They’ll be a great appetizer for a summer party or even a tasty poolside snack paired with a crisp prosecco or a fizz. Enjoy!
Fresh Peaches, Semi-Sweet & White Chocolate Chips, Cereal, Milk or Creme and Sprinkles
Cut the peaches into medium-sized wedges (not too thin). You can grill them on an outdoor grill or use a grill pan. Remove them once you get good solid brown grill marks. Let them rest on a cooling rack. Meanwhile you could start melting the chocolate till it looks like a ganache. Add about 1 to 2 table spoons of milk or creme to make it smooth and easy to work with. Let this mixture cool. Grind the cereal in a mixer until you get a crumble. Now all you need is to assemble. Dip the peaches n the chocolate then in the crumble and arrange on a platter/tray. Add the sprinkles from top. Refrigerate them till the chocolate sets and hardens a little bit.
Notes: For this recipe I would prefer the peaches to be a bit tangy just cause I like the sweet and tangy combo. But that’s just a personal choice. Also, I use neon pink colored sprinkles to add that pop of color.
Brands: Nestle Toll House chocolate chips and Kelloggs’s smart start cereal.
