Every year I host a big holiday party right before Christmas. Since I am a food blogger and recipe developer, expectations are high when it comes to food at my house. It’s not a sit down dinner, more of an open house and lots of food gets chowed down all evening. This year I will be premiering this new dish, Baked Brie with Honey.
I almost hate to post how easy it is to make because unless you read the recipe, you would think a lot more goes into it. Fortunately for you I am here to reveal all my entertaining secrets. This baked brie with honey will keep you well fed for an evening of fun with friends! If you choose to eat cheese, like I do, you will love this warm, gooey caramely dish! I promise! And to my future party guests, don’t worry, I’m making two cause I know it will go fast!

The Baked Brie with Honey
- 1 wheel of Brie- you can make this is partial wheels just as easily, I’ve done it tons. Just watch the cooking time as it softens a bit faster, mine is done in 5 minutes with a partial wheel.
- 3-4 tablespoons honey- this is what makes the nuts taste caramel-y
- 1/3rd cup chopped cashews or other nuts of your choosing
- Optional Toppings- drizzle of balsamic, or a flavored balsamic, fresh or dried cranberries, a touch of smoked salt, fig ANYTHING!
- Heat your over to 350 degrees
- Once the oven is preheated- line your sheet pan. I prefer the non-stick sheets over parchment for this as I want to quickly and easily move the cheese off the pan and onto my cheese plater. I would NOT recommend foil for this recipe.
- Set the cheese in the center of your sheet pan.
- Drizzle with some on the honey and then add the cashews over the top. Drizzle with the remaining honey. I set a small amount aside for drizzling after cooking
- Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes. Keep a close eye, you want the wheel to keep it’s shape and not turn into a puddle in your oven. I start checking at around 5 minutes.
- Remove from oven and with a large spatula set on a flat serving board. The one in my photo is this slate number from crate and barrel. I use the spatula to transfer any warmed honey from the cookie sheet back on top of the cheese
- Serve with a small knife for cutting and spreading!
Helpful Equipment- non-stick sheet pan liner– this is what I have but I saw Costco has a different kind on sale right now that I used at my mom’s house growing up. I think that would also work well.
