I double dare ya to try this insane concoction that will give your mouth a bad case of schizophrenia. Take a bite and enjoy the sweet peaches, feel the heat sneak up on you, and put out the fire with ice cream. Peach ice cream is good as well.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the habanero peppers, and cook 5 to 8 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove and discard the peppers, then stir the peaches into the flavored butter. Increase the heat to medium-high. Cook and stir until the peaches begin to sizzle in the butter, then stir in the brown sugar and cinnamon. Continue stirring until the peaches are tender and the sugar has turned into a golden brown glaze, 3 to 5 minutes more.

  • Spoon the peaches into individual bowls. Scoop the ice cream over the peaches, and sprinkle with peanut brittle to serve.

Pretty good would make again but would include the seeds or add more peppers cuz it wasn't very hot even by itself (and with the ice cream it was even milder). I liked the fact that the peaches stayed relatively crunchy. Read More

I expected more heat the ice cream really reduced the burn factor. I would use a third habanero next time. My peaches were so juicy I had to adjust the cooking technique. After the peaches were cooked I pulled then out with a slotted spoon. I then continued to cook the syrup until it thickened. This topping would also be very good on a cream cheese stuffed French toast. I would keep the peppers at 2 if it is not being used with ice cream. Thanks Dave for the post! Read More

Please make this with habanero peppers and not jalapenos. Jalapenos do not have that sneak up power that the recipe talks about. They are just dare peaches not double dare without the habaneros. Amazing recipe! The only tweak I would do next time would be to keep the peaches and ice cream separate on the plate so the ice cream doesn't melt and mix with the peaches. It dulls down the kick. Also if serving for a big party don't tell them that it is spicy and just watch. Priceless! Read More

These are incredible! They taste EXACTLY as described. Sweet peaches followed by the heat...ice cream required! Thank you for sharing this recipe. Read More

such a great idea! this had my entire family going wild -- even those with the most sensitive stomachs. the flavors compliment each other so perfectly that not one overwhelms another. i would have to agree with pianobarry and say to serve the ice cream seperately otherwise it quickly melts and takes the heat (both kinds) down a notch.

WOOOOHOO! I suspected this might be too hot for many of the people I was serving it for but it really wasn't. Besides the ice cream that helps cool it off the heat is just a little end note and doesn't overwhelm the peaches. I recommend making sure you don't dice the peppers too small. Maybe just chop them in quarters. The butter gets a little frothy and it can be hard to find the peppers to take them out. You wouldn't want someone to come across one on accident! YIKES! Everyone loved it. GREAT unique recipe. I'll definitely do this one again! Read More

This is a fabulous recipe. Truly a unique taste experience. I have fixed it twice for company and everyone loved it commenting that they'd never tasted anything quite like it. I use habaneros from my garden to make this and it has just the right amount of heat. Habaneros have a wonderful almost fruity (and yes HOT!) quality and I think by substituting other types of peppers you would lose some of the sophistication of this dish. Read More

This was delicious. I was too scared to even look at the habaneros in the store so I used jalapenos. Someone had just given me a bunch of nectarines so I used those instead of peaches. I couldn't find a health bar or anything like that in the store so I topped this with a little granola and some of the sauted jalapeno diced up. A little heat quite tasty. I'll make this again and maybe I'll get brave next time and swap out part of the jalapeno for some habanero. Read More

This is a fantastic recipe! You can make this as spicy or mild as you like. We love spicy so I used fresh peppers from my garden and some ground red pepper and fresh Palisade Peaches from the farmers market. Thank you SO much for this recipe! Read More
