Peach Mallows

This sweet, juicy dish will melt in your mouth.

Prep time: 5 minutes

Total time: 10 minutes

Yield: Serves 1

Peach Mallows


  • 1 peach
  • 1/8 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1 tablespoon butter (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Handful any additional toppings (berries, chocolate chips, coconut, peanuts, etc.)


  1. At home: Pack ingredients in separate bags or containers, and store peaches where they won’t be squished or bruised.
  2. On the trail: Slice peach in half and fill with butter and marshmallows, and then sprinkle both halves with cinnamon. Wrap peaches in tin foil and cook over campfire for 3-5 minutes. Unwrap and dig in!
