"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

habanero peppers, seeded and halved
fresh peaches - peeled, pitted and sliced
vanilla ice cream
crushed jalapeno and habanero peanut brittle (such as Klondike Candies®)
i used seeded jalapenos and this was actually good. for the love of god don't give it to kids.
Pretty good, would make again but would include the seeds or add more peppers cuz it wasn't very hot even by itself (and with the ice cream it was even milder). I liked the fact that the peaches stayed relatively crunchy.
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 were cooked I pulled then out with a slotted spoon. I then continued to cook the syrup until it thickened. This topping would also be very good on a cream cheese stuffed French toast. I would keep the peppers at 2 if it is not being used with ice cream. Thanks Dave for the post!
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. Amazing recipe! The only tweak I would do next time would be to keep the peaches and ice cream separate on the plate so the ice cream doesn't melt and mix with the peaches. It dulls down the kick. Also, if serving for a big party, don't tell them that it is spicy and just watch. Priceless!
These are incredible! They taste EXACTLY as described. Sweet peaches followed by the heat...ice 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 have to agree with pianobarry and say to serve the ice cream seperately, otherwise it quickly melts and takes the heat (both kinds) down a notch.
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 and doesn't overwhelm the peaches. I recommend making sure you don't dice the peppers too small. Maybe just chop them in quarters. The butter gets a little frothy and it can be hard to find the peppers to take them out. You wouldn't want someone to come across one on accident! YIKES! Everyone loved it. GREAT unique recipe. I'll definitely do this one again!
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 habaneros from my garden to make this and it has just the right amount of heat. Habaneros have a wonderful, almost fruity (and yes, HOT!) quality and I think by substituting other types of peppers you would lose some of the sophistication of this dish.
