Peach Bars with Caramel Creme Frosting

September 2, 2014Teresa

Peach Bars with Caramel Creme Frosting will have you salivating! Prepare yourself for a magnificent treat that your family will rave over! These delicious cake-type bars are filled with peaches and walnuts and then frosted with a caramel-marshmallow frosting.

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G doesn’t even begin to describe the taste of this dessert. The icing tastes heavenly and it’s very thick, making these bar-type cookies rich–maybe a little too rich–decadent, and drool-worthy.

I probably should have entitled my blog: “Icing Queen” because I love icing and frosting on cookies, bars, and cakes. If there’s a way to add it, I’ll find a way. 🙂 The thicker and more lavishly the frosting is added to the goodie, the better I like it.

Yes, I have an insatiable sweet tooth. Peach Bars with Caramel Creme Frosting have everything I love….lots of fruit and nuts, and then slathered with entirely too much icing. Instead of allowing these bars to cool like I should have, I cut into them right away because I wanted to sample them hot! Yum.

When I was looking through my family recipes for ways to use up all of our bushels of peaches, I found one given to me by a co-worker’s wife when I worked at Dallas Baptist University. He had brought this heavenly apple cake in once for a luncheon and I begged him for the recipe. I switched around a few things and made it with peaches from our own peach trees. Peach Bars with Caramel Creme Frosting turned out spectacular and that’s not an exaggeration.

If you like icing-topped cookies or cakes, and caramel icing made with marshmallows at that, then you need to make these bars. Your family will be in seventh heaven pleading with you to make this lovely dessert often. While this probably can be made with either frozen or canned peaches, there’s nothing quite like fresh peaches in a dessert. Regardless, be prepared to drool…..

When I initially posted this recipe in September 2014, I had real difficulty getting my camera to focus properly so I ended up using my back-up iPhone pictures. Unfortunately, iPhones always put a hue across the pictures that look like a cataract or something across the lens. They are not great for taking food pictures! I recently remade these delicious bars and finally managed to get a few decent pictures with my Canon. Enjoy.

      Thank you so much, Joanne! We used to have 6 fruit bearing peach trees on our property until we moved last summer. I was always trying to find ways to use them up. This is one of those decadent recipes that you’ll drool over. 🙂
