So July is coming to a close in just a few more days. I can’t believe it’s almost August! Where does the time go? One of my favorite things about summer is the fruit and right now peaches are available at most markets. I was raised in Georgia for most of my childhood and peaches are such a summer time treat!

If you’re able, you should definitely visit a peach farm! It’s one of our favorite activities to do when we are visiting family back in Georgia during the summer. But, this recipe is just as yummy with peaches from the grocery store.

The peaches are roasted in the oven for about 30 minutes which means when the peaches come out of the over they are perfectly soft and the natural sugars are even sweeter. Breyers Natural Vanilla is the obvious pairing with these delightful roasted peaches!

Breyers is celebrating its 150th birthday and has partnered with celebrity chef Curtis Stone and his wife, actress Lindsay Price Stone, to create 12 recipes featuring Breyers Natural Vanilla, inspired by every month of the year, to give families a way to celebrate birthdays and special occasions with Breyers all year long. I’m sharing the JULY RECIPE with you today!

One of the things I love most about Breyers is that they only use real vanilla that comes from sustainably farmed, Rainforest Alliance Certified™ vanilla beans. Plus, Breyers only sources milk and cream from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones!* {see note below}

This is ice cream you can feel good about feeding your family!

I’m sure you know this already {I mean, who doesn’t already LOVE Breyers Ice Cream} but just in case: Breyers products are available in grocery stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $3.99 – $5.99.

In fact, it’d be hard to go wrong with the recipe I’m sharing today. My family loved eating this dessert! My daughter Sarah has been out of town and I promised to make this for her when she gets home as she was really disappointed when she found out what we were having!

I am sure you will love these Roasted White Peaches with Honeycomb and Vanilla Ice Cream as much as we did!

Don’t be overwhelmed by the homemade Honeycomb candy. It’s hard to mess up! In fact, I thought I had over cooked mine, but it turned out perfectly!

Meanwhile, lightly spray a small baking sheet with nonstick spray. In a medium heavy saucepan over high heat, bring remaining sugar, honey, and 2 tbs. water to a boil, stirring constantly.

Reduce heat to medium-high and cook, without stirring, for about 5 minutes, or until a candy thermometer reaches 305°F.

Remove from heat and whisk in baking soda just until blended and mixture begins to bubble.

Gently pour hot mixture onto prepared baking sheet and cool. {I put mine in the fridge to cool faster.} Break honeycomb into small pieces and reserve in an airtight container.

Tip: You could totally make this Honeycomb candy ahead of time and store in an air tight container!
