Double Dare Peaches

Rated as 4.74 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. 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.
  2. Spoon the peaches into individual bowls. Scoop the ice cream over the peaches, and sprinkle with peanut brittle to serve.

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 w...

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...

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

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 ha...

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 an...

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 habanero...

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...

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 f...
