"This was wonderful! I took this to a gathering and decided it should be warm and gooey so I lined my 3 qt slow cooker with foil, plopped my brie in the bottom and poured the mixture over the top. Absolutely fantastic! You could add chopped dried apricots for more chunks. I might even double the jam mixture next time."
