Ingredients

  • 1 Teaspoon butter
  • 2 Tablespoons caramel sauce
  • 1/4 Cup pecan halves
  • 2 peaches, ripe, but firm

Directions

Allow your campfire to burn down to coals.

Butter a 6-inch square section of large aluminum foil, and drizzle with a tablespoon of caramel sauce. Scatter pecans evenly over the caramel.

Wash peaches and slice in half, removing the pit. Arrange the 4 peaches, cut side down, on top of the pecans. Drizzle with remaining caramel sauce.

Wrap peaches up tightly, and place in hot campfire ashes. Cook slowly for about 20-15 minutes.

Remove from the heat and open package to allow steam to escape. Invert onto plate, letting all cooking juices drain out of the foil. Serve warm.

Caramel Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Caramel Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
