These Roasted White Peaches with Ice Cream and honeycomb make a great easy dessert recipe.
Whether you need to make dessert a dinner party or are craving something sweet, there is nothing like fresh fruit and creamy ice cream. I love using fruits that are in-season and at the peak of freshness.
This recipe uses fresh white peaches, which are roasted with a touch of sugar and lemon. Roasting the peaches brings out their natural flavor and juiciness. Simply place peach halves in a small amount of water and roast in the oven.
Once they’re roasted, the peaches are sweet, succulent and have a slight crispy lemony coating from the lemon-sugar.
The warm peaches are served alongside creamy Breyers Natural Vanilla Ice Cream and topped with a homemade honeycomb.
My family loves Breyers ice cream. It has a quality and taste that we can trust.
