These Grilled Peaches & Rum Caramel Sauce are incredible. The caramel sauce takes special attention, and maybe even a little practice, but once you get it, these will be about the best dessert you'll ever serve. A little smokey, a little sweet, a little punch from the dark rum = pure delicious.

Ingredients

FOR THE RUM CARAMEL SAUCE

  • 1 & 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp dark rum
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

FOR THE GRILLED PEACHES

  • 4 - 6 fresh peaches cut in half and pits removed
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • Olive oil or grapeseed oil

Instructions

MAKE THE RUM CARAMEL SAUCE

  • Mix the sugar and 1/3 cup cold water in a heavy-duty 3-quart saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • Cook, covered, checking occasionally, until the mixture starts to darken slightly, about 5 - 7 minutes.
  • Immediately remove the lid and using your hands, swirl the pan frequently until it is a dark amber. Do not stir. This will happen quickly.
  • Reduce the heat to low and carefully whisk in the butter. It will bubble.
  • Keep whisking until the bubbles stop.
  • Add the cream, whisking until the caramel is smooth, about 2 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and whisk in the rum, salt, and vanilla.

MAKE THE GRILLED PEACHES

  • Heat your grill to medium-high heat.
  • In a small bowl, mix the cinnamon and sugar.
  • Brush the cut-side of the peaches with the oil.
  • Place (over direct heat) on the grill, cut side down, for about 3 minutes. Rotate 90 degrees, and cook for 3 more minutes.
  • Meanwhile, brush the tops with the oil.
  • Turn the peaches over and move to in-direct heat.
  • Sprinkle cut sides with cinnamon sugar.
  • Cover grill and cook until sugar is melted and fruit is tender, about 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Remove and place on platter. Pour Caramel Sauce over the top.
