This easy recipe is practically foolproof. Start with your favorite wedge of brie cheese. Leave it out for a while so it comes to room temperature — cold brie is just not as good.

How to serve brie with spiced and warm honey and toasted walnuts

Just before serving, toast some walnuts and make the warm spiced honey. In a small saucepan, combine honey with crushed red pepper flakes and a pinch of salt. Cook until it is warmed through then drizzle over the brie cheese and top with walnuts.

Brie with Warm Honey and Toasted Walnuts

  • PREP
  • COOK

To toast walnuts, heat your oven to 350 degrees F. Spread the nuts  in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast for 5 to 10 minutes, tossing the nuts around occasionally to ensure even cooking. Nuts are toasted when they appear a shade darker and smell nutty.

Makes 4 to 6 servings

You Will Need

1 wedge brie cheese

1/4 cup walnut halves, toasted

3 tablespoons pure honey

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1/8 teaspoon sea salt


    1Remove the cheese from refrigerator and place onto a serving plate. Set aside for 1 hour so that it comes to room temperature.

    2Five minutes before serving, heat the honey in a small saucepan over medium heat with the red pepper flakes and salt. When the honey is warm drizzle it over the brie. Scatter walnuts on top and around the sides then serve.
