Peach and Brie S’mores + Homemade Decadence

Welcome to Cookbook Week on Macheesmo! I’ll be posting recipes from five cookbooks this week and giving away copies! All winners will be announced next Friday (11/14).

The marshmallow industry should be on high alert.

While it’s pretty tough to beat the idea of roasting marshmallows over an open fire and smashing them between some crispy graham crackers with gooey chocolate, I think I might actually like this recipe for peach s’mores even better.

Don’t get me wrong, I won’t be bringing brie on my next camping trip, but the flavors in this simple dessert snack are just out of this world. It’s a simple combo, but the slightly salty and creamy brie paired with good chocolate and sweet peaches is really incredible.

I could’ve eaten a huge tray of these peach s’mores by myself. Just crazy good.

While I’m not much of a sweet tooth, I love recipes like this that add a little salty touch to normal desserts. It’s the kind of fun twist that makes Joy The Baker’s new book, Homemade Decadence, such a treat.

Peach S’mores

S’More Basics

While the original recipe for these peach s’mores calls for fresh peaches, I wasn’t able to find any this time of year that really called out to me, so I just grabbed some frozen ones, thawed them, and sliced them thin.

Ditch the Marshmallows!

To make these beauties, just lay out some crackers on a baking sheet and pile on chocolate squares and brie. For sizing the brie slices, imagine a smashed marshmallow. You want a smashed-marshmallow-sized piece of brie on each one.

The Only Trick

The only real trick to these beautiful dessert snacks is the broiling. You have to keep a close eye on them and the timing will most likely vary depending on your broiler. My broiler is really spicy hot so about 30-45 seconds under there was just the right amount to soften the brie and melt the chocolate.

You might need a bit more though. Just watch it closely.

The Giveaway!

To be honest, I don’t own a ton of sweets/desserts books because I just don’t have a huge sweet tooth! I prefer a bag of chips over a cookie any day of the week. But, I already have like 10 recipes in this book earmarked.

Joy not only has an award-winning blog, but has a completely genuine and lovely writing style. It’s infectious and will make you want to bake one of her creations.

And oh those recipes. She has completely mastered the idea of ditching the cloyingly sweet desserts for a more measured mix of salty, creamy, and just-sweet-enough. Salty Pretzel Crust! Apple Pie with Cheddar and Bacon! Brown Butter Cupcakes!

I could go on.

If you’re a fan of good baking and great writing, you could do worse than grab a copy of Homemade Decadence.

Or just win one!

  1. This is very intriguing as I would not ever have thought to pair the cheese and chocolate. Makes me want to give it a try.

  2. i too prefer savory, crunchy, salty, garlicky, spicy, etc stuff over sweets, except for ‘that time of the month’ then give me chocolate or something sweet to eat :) !!

  3. Hmmm, never thought of peaches and cheese in smores but being a sweets person I would def try them!

  4. This concept sounds very intriguing. Like Macheesmo, I favor more the salty than the sweet. This book could be right up my alley.

  5. This look so fancy! I mean really simple to put together but so elegant! I wonder though, does the recipe using fresh peaches require peeling them first? I’ll definitely try this with frozen until next year’s fresh ones come in. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Peaches and brie are already a winning combination, but adding s’mores into the picture? Now that’s genius.

  7. I wish I could be JTB’s neighbor because her blog makes me drool… all the time. Her recipes have never steered me wrong!

  8. I never thought of dressing up the flavor combo in s’mores this way! I’m going to try this for sure!

  9. Been following Joy the Baker’s blog for quite a while now, and she never disappoints. I’d love to try some of the recipes from her cookbook.
