I might have promised not to post anything cheesy 🙂 for a while a few posts back but I think the hiatus has gone on long enough, don't you? Plus, this praline brie dip is so easy to make and SO good. Plus, we are right in the thick of holiday party season and who doesn't want to show up with an easy holiday appetizer idea? My praline braked brie dip is the perfect sweet and savory starter.
I first made praline baked brie dip for a girls-only wine and cheese night and it was a hit for two simple reasons. Reason one is the praline sauce you may have seen on my super popular sweet potato bread pudding. Reason two is cheese. Because everyone loves cheese, right? It is sweet and savory with crunch and creaminess all rolled into one--truly the best hot brie appetizer you'll ever taste. Since then I've served it at several gatherings, including Christmas parties and my housewarming. It gets rave reviews every time and nobody can believe how simple it is to make. This praline dip is one of my most-requested recipes.

Rich, buttery praline sauce poured over baked brie cheese makes the perfect dip for crusty bread or crackers.
- 12 ounces brie cheese
- ¾ cup pecan halves or pieces
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 5 tablespoons butter
- ⅓ cup heavy cream
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Coat a small baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
Remove top and sides of rind from brie then place brie in a small baking dish and bake for about 22 minutes. Cheese should be melted and bubbly.
In the meantime, use remaining ingredients to make praline sauce. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat then add brown sugar and cream, stirring well until uniform.
Bring praline sauce to a boil then simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, allowing sauce to thicken. Remove from heat then stir in pecans.
Once brie is finished baking, pour praline sauce over top and serve with crackers, crusty bread, or berries.
