Honey Brie Bites with Candied Walnuts

by In Katrina's Kitchen

These Honey Brie Bites and Candied Walnuts are delectable one-biters that couple soft brie with crunchy, sweet walnuts to create the perfect combination.

Channel your inner cheese connoisseur and pair this brie-based appetizer or dessert with medium red wines, like a merlot, or soft white wines, such as a chardonnay.

Although it makes a great partner in crime, brie can be a standalone appetizer, too. When serving brie, take it out of the refrigerator 30-45 minutes before indulging to ensure its full flavor and texture.

As you can see from this recipe, you also cannot go wrong with baked brie. It is melty, creamy and always a crowd-pleaser. Also, if and when your guests put your cheese knowledge to the test: Yes, brie’s rind is edible!

2 sheets puff pastry, thawed and cold
8 ounce wheel of Brie
1/2 cup honey
1 cup candied walnuts
1 egg

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
