Fruit and Caramel Brie Recipe

"I’m a stay-at-home mother with two boys and I enjoy cooking—especially appetizers," shares Tracy Schuhmacher from Penfield, New York. "It must run in the family because my mom served appetizers and desserts exclusively for several Christmas Eve celebrations. Brie is one of my favorite cheeses and this sweet-savory recipe is party-special but especially easy to throw together."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 round (8 ounces) Brie cheese, rind removed
  • 1/3 cup caramel ice cream topping
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup chopped dried apples
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) French bread baguette, sliced and toasted


  • 1. Place Brie in a microwave-safe bowl. In a small bowl, combine the caramel topping, cranberries, apples and walnuts. Spread over Brie. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 60-90 seconds or until cheese is heated through and slightly melted. Serve with toasted baguette slices. Yield: 8 servings.

"This was great appetizer for before Thanksgiving dinner. Very good, easy to prepare. Only thing to be VERY careful about is microwaving times. Start with 30 seconds and work up to 90. Brie can be easily over heated. Watch your microwave and you will be very happy with the results!!"

"Made this for Christmas Day (we always have appetizers before the arduous task of opening gifts). We liked it so much that I am making it for a New Year's party too. I made it exactly as directed, and it was wonderful. Also good with crackers such as whole wheat or Triscuits."

"Instead of dried i used Fresh chopped up apple pieces, and the crunch was appreciated. It was so yummy!! My dad always brings it up "Remember when you made that baguette thing that was so good?" It was easy, but mine didn't look as good as the i just topped the toasted bread and served."
