Caramel-Covered Brie with Dried Fruit and Nuts

This divine “starter” is a guaranteed show stopper. It presents as beautifully as it tastes and will have your guests raving for days. Serve as an appetizer, or as a cheese course with Port for an after-dinner nibble.


  • 1 cup (250 mL) packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) butter
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) corn syrup
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) baking soda
  • ½ cup (125 mL) mixed salted nuts
  • ½ cup (125 mL) dried cranberries
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) chopped fresh rosemary
  • Pinch cayenne pepper (or to taste)
  • 9-inch round double cream Brie wheel, slightly warmed


Combine brown sugar, butter, and corn syrup in a medium saucepot. Cook over medium heat stirring only once or twice until mixture comes to a gentle boil. Continue to cook for about one minute without stirring. Remove from heat and quickly stir in baking soda. Stir in nuts, dried cranberries, rosemary, and cayenne. Place Brie wheel on a wooden cutting board (or platter) and pour caramel mixture over Brie. Serve with an assortment of crackers and fresh fruit. Serves 8 to 10.
