Kelly Bryson Pearce: The next time you entertain, you HAVE to try this amazing appetizer. There isn't even any cooking involved, it's just an easy to assemble party platter of pure JOY! It's Warm, Ooey, gooey cheese covered in sweet syrup and crunchy pecans...serve it up with fresh fruit and a sliced baguette and watch your guests go nuts for it!

Warm Brie with maple syrup, brown sugar and candied pecans

1 triangle of Brie or Camembert
1/2 cup candied pecans
3 tablespoons light-brown sugar
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
One large sour dough baguette / apples and pears for serving

To Make The Sauce:
Combine equal parts maple syrup and brown sugar in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil and then turn down the heat and let it simmer until it gets extra thick and goopy and the sugar is fully melted.

Put your Brie in a 350 degree oven for 5-8 minutes (more or less) until it's warm and the cheese is just starting to ooze out the sides. Keep an eye on it - Some ovens work quicker than others and you don't want it to turn to soup!
Lightly crush your candied pecans.

To Assemble: pour the syrup over the brie and top with candied pecans....serve with slices of toasted baguette, green apples and yellow pears.
