Grilled Caramelized Peaches and Sauce V

5 minutes 10 minutes 3 servings

Who knew a can of peaches could make such a craveworthy dessert? Here we’ve grilled our tinned peach halves to caramelize them and warm them through, then we’ve taken the leftover syrup and turned it into a velvety butterscotch-esque sauce. Add a spoonful of ice cream and a sprinkling of coconut and you have yourself one fine (and quick) dessert.
