{Recipe} ~ Pecan Kahlua Brie

I volunteered to bring an appetizer to the mountains to feed our hungry crew before dinner on Saturday. I always have so many recipes I want to try so it makes it difficult to narrow it down and actually make a choice! This recipe has very few ingredients and was super simple to throw together for a delicious appetizer that was gobbled up in minutes! I highly suggest making this for your next party or get-together. Trust me, everyone will love it!

Pecan, Brown Sugar, and Kahlua Baked Brie

2/3 cup pecans (2.5 ounces), toasted and chopped
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons Kahlua
1-2 sweet apples (I like Honeycrisp)

13.2 ounce wheel of Brie

Preheat oven to 350º F. Using a knife, score a circle around the top edge of the brie (leave 1/4 inch rim). Take a spoon and scrape the white rind off the center circle of the brie (to the inside of the 1/4" rim). Place brie on the center of an oven safe platter.
Mix the pecans, brown sugar, and Kahlua in a small bowl. Carefully place the mixture in the center of the brie and spread to the edges (staying within the 1/4" rim you left). Bake for 8-15 minutes until brown sugar/pecan mixture begins to bubble. Be careful not to overcook (the brie will literally melt and lose its shape if baked too long). You want it nice and warm.
Serve with crackers and apple slices.
