Adding nuts to Brie makes it loved by all. It’s easy to bake on a sheet, or you can even microwave it. This makes it perfect for anyone hosting parties. Enjoy this snack, and see how it becomes a hit at your events.

Exact Ingredients (+ Possible Substitutes)

To make a delicious Baked Brie with Honey and Nuts, here’s what you need:

  • 8 oz. wheel or wedge of Brie cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts such as walnuts or pecans
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • A pinch of salt

For bigger gatherings, double the recipe for a Costco-sized Brie. You can mix walnuts and pecans for a nuttier taste. Or try some honey glazed nuts for sweetness.

“A great substitute for nuts in recipes is sunflower seeds. They maintain the crunch and add a unique flavor,” says renowned chef David Chang.

Instead of honey, maple syrup gives a different taste. There are many options for gluten-free appetizers to go with this Brie. Try gluten-free crackers or apple slices with the warm, melty Brie cheese.


Start preparing your Brie cheese by scoring a circle on its rind. Do this about a quarter-inch from the edge. This helps the cheese melt evenly. Place your Brie on a baking sheet or a pie plate. Then, set your oven to 350°F. Bake the Brie for 15 to 20 minutes. Or, if you’re in a hurry, warm it in the microwave for 3 to 5 minutes.

While the Brie is baking, toast your choice of nuts in a skillet on low heat. Keep stirring until they smell rich and nutty. But be careful, don’t let them burn. Then, mix the nuts with honey, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Let this mix cook until it’s bubbly and well-combined, making a tasty topping for your Brie.

When the Brie is done, carefully remove the top rind with a knife. This will show the warm, melted cheese underneath. Next, pour the honey nut topping over the Brie. Let it seep into the cheese. Your delicious Brie with honey is ready. Enjoy it with crackers, apple slices, bread, or any tasty dippers. This melty cheese dish makes a great appetizer. Have fun!
