Has peach season hit where you live, yet? Every time we take a trip to visit family at the beach we come back with peaches by the bucket and I’m always looking for creative ways to use this juicy, sweet fruit that we just can’t get enough of. Truly, there’s nothing better than fresh peaches on a hot summer day! Unless.. of course.. it’s fresh roasted peaches topped with creamy vanilla ice cream.
But I mean.. that goes without saying, right?! Everything is better ala mode! Today our family whipped up a special snack, in honor of Breyers celebrating its 150th birthday! As everyone who knows us is already aware, it’s our favorite brand of ice cream because we love how they combine simple ingredients for delicious flavor! Breyers only sources milk and cream from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones*, and all Breyers vanilla is real and from sustainably farmed, Rainforest Alliance Certified™ vanilla beans.
Breyers was founded in Philadelphia in 1866 when William A. Breyer hand-cranked his first gallon of ice cream, which featured fresh fruits and nuts, and sold it to his neighbors. Ever since then they’ve been committed to high quality ingredients.
To help them celebrate their birthday Breyers has partnered with celebrity chef Curtis Stone and his wife, actress Lindsay Price Stone, to create 12 recipes featuring Breyers Natural Vanilla, inspired by every month of the year. This July they are sharing this delicious recipe for Roasted White Peaches with Honeycomb and Vanilla Ice Cream. And to top off these sundaes, Chef Curtis Stone also included this amazing recipe for Honeycomb, which is basically like a crazy delicious science experiment that your kids will love to make and eat! It’s sweet and chewy and the baking soda gives the candy this amazing texture.
Now I just want to make it over and over again and see how many fun flavor combinations we can come up with! In true Breyers fashion, the trick to this recipe is starting with just a few fresh ingredients. Roasting fresh white peaches with sugar and lemon zest helps to bring out their flavors. You pull them out of the oven when they start to release their own juices, which creates a sweet syrup that you can top your sundae with. This is a great recipe to make with your kids! It’s so simple to make and you can easily modify it to suit their tastes. Not to mention how much everyone will love to eat it!
Now it’s your turn: What’s your favorite ala mode recipe? Do your kids have a favorite summer snack that they enjoy eating?
