Grilled Peaches with Mascarpone Cream & Bourbon Salted Caramel Sauce

Grilled peaches with mascarpone cream is a delightful summer treat. Sweet juicy fresh peaches, refreshing whipped mascarpone cream, boozy salted caramel sauce and crunchy almonds. Summer snacking doesn’t get any better than this!

Grilled Peaches with Mascarpone Cream

We’ve been putting our new electric BBQ grill to good use, lemme tell you. We’ve been grilling everything from corn on the cob to burgers and now we’re grilling fruit too.

Grilled peaches taste wonderful – sweeter, juicier, with a hint of smokiness from the grill. Then top it with mascarpone cream and bourbon salted caramel sauce and crunchy almonds.

Get ready for something wonderful!

Mascarpone cream

I’m in a bit of a mascarpone cream phase, aren’t I? Have you checked these out:

Anyway, I initially wanted just the usual peaches and cream but decided to put mascarpone because mascarpone.

It makes the topping richer and so luxurious. Did I already mention I love mascarpone?

I knew I wanted to drizzle sauce on it too so I made a batch of my salted caramel sauce and added bourbon because…honestly, do we really need a reason lol!?

For texture I chopped some almonds and I was set.

Put them all together and what you have is a dessert that screams summer. Peaches are gorgeous this time of year and if you’re looking for different ways to eat/devour them, grilling is a great way to go.

And grilled peaches with mascarpone cream drizzled with bourbon salted caramel sauce and sprinkled with crunchy almonds is just terrific. All the components go so well together and the peach flavour shines through all that delicious topping.

It’s bright, scrumptious and so easy to whip up too. So the next time you’re grilling (which I assume is all the time like us!) put some peaches on there. Enjoy!

Instructions
 

For the Grilled Peaches:

  • Brush the cut side of the peaches with olive oil and grill cut side down on medium high heat for about 5 minutes or until tender (see notes). Carefully remove and set aside.

For the Mascarpone Cream:

  • Whip heavy cream, mascarpone cheese and vanilla extract until you reach medium stiff peaks. Chill until you're ready to use (see notes).

For the Bourbon Salted Caramel Sauce:

Assembly:

  • Dollop a generous amount of mascarpone cream on top of each grilled peach. Drizzle with bourbon salted caramel sauce and sprinkle with chopped almonds. Serve immediately.

Notes

  1. Here’s my recipe for homemade salted caramel sauce.
  2. We like our grilled peaches tender but still firm. You can grill them for longer if you want them softer.
  3. It’s best to prepare your mascarpone cream just before you serve your peaches so it’s freshly whipped and cool.
  4. On the other hand, bourbon salted caramel sauce can be prepared up to two days ahead of time. Just store in an air-tight container. Do not refrigerate. If it hardens, microwave for 10 seconds and give it a quick stir.

Grilled peaches sound really tempting, need to try them out. Recently had the pleasure of eating peaches straight off the tree, absolutely loved it.
