Smeaches! White Chocolate Smores with Grilled Peaches
SMEACHES! Graham crackers stuffed with grilled peaches, melty white chocolate and toasted marshmallows! I can't remember a 4th of July where we didn't break out some smores for dessert! You can easily assemble all of the smores ingredients on a tray for an easy DIY smores bar dessert table!
Have you ever had smeaches?!
I'll be honest and tell you that this was my first time having them. My design editor extraordinaire Abagail, came up with a bunch of recipe inspiration for June and forced me to include these into this summers content calendar! The ingreidients for smeaches sounded pretty epic and I'm never one to turn down a dessert with fresh peaches, so of course I said yes!
Making smores at home is one of my favorite summer desserts! When Jared and I worked at summer camp in Pennyslvania for three summers we would have smores practically every week for two months. The campers loved it and it meant we always got a relaxing night by the fire. To this day whenever I have a smores I feel like I'm back at camp. We now spend summers being mostly adults but I'll never forget running around as a counselor but feeling just like a camper myself. I was really craving a bite of nostalgia this week and I knew that these white chocolate smores with toasted marshmallows and grilled peaches would hit the spot.
If I'm being totally honest the regular kind of smores (dark chocolate, marshmallow, graham cracker) gives me a bit of a sugar high. They are just so SWEET. Smores are typically made with Hershy's chocolate because hey practically throw the bars at you this time of year at the grocery store. I would have to have a MEGA chocolate craving to eat just a square of Hershy's chocolate. It tastes like pure sugar to me. So we swapped in a melty white chocolate for the smeaches! The only other difference is the marinated peach chunks. We marinated the peaches in a simple brown sugar/cinnamon mixture on the counter for a few minutes before grilling them up. The peach helps cut out the pure sugar taste of the smores.
I love developing recipes around a classic dish and giving it a seasonal/personal twist!
