1 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
¼ cup granulated sugar
2 ripe peaches, halved and pit removed
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Make whipped cream by combining heavy cream, vanilla extract and ¼ cup sugar in a bowl. Using a hand mixer, blend cream until stiff peaks appear. Set aside.
Heat gas grill on high. Brush grill grates with paper towel soaked with vegetable oil. Place halved peaches on grill, cut side down. Grill peaches until cooked through, about 2 minutes.
Meanwhile combine cinnamon and 2 teaspoons sugar. Place grilled peaches cut side up, on a serving platter and season with cinnamon sugar. Top peaches with whipped cream. Drizzle peaches with chocolate and caramel and top with walnuts.
