Today is National Peaches & Cream Day, but forget the cream...how about peaches dipped in dark chocolate? Peaches! They’re stunning right now – grab some. Slice them up, dip them in coconut oil infused dark chocolate, and sprinkle some chopped cashews all over!
Dark Chocolate Coconut Dipped Peaches with Optional Curry-Honey Mascarpone Filling:
Serves 6-12 depending
6 peaches, cut in half and pitted
1 cup dark chocolate chips, melted
1 tablespoon coconut oil (optional)
1/4 cup cashews, finely chopped
8 oz mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons curry powder
Slice clean peaches in half, pit, and lay them on a parchment- paper lined sheet pan, set aside. Temper or in a double boiler, in the microwave, melt chocolate chips, and mix with coconut oil until completely smooth. Dip one half of each peach in the melted chocolate and then sprinkle with chopped nuts. Place the sheet pan with peaches in the refrigerator to cool while you make your filling.
Place mascarpone cheese, curry powder, and honey in a medium bowl and beat till smooth. Once the chocolate has hardened on the peaches, scoop the filling into the middle of each one (about a tablespoon or so each), and serve.
