Pecan Caramelized Brie

Pecan Caramelized Brie

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1-1/2 Cup pecan halves, roughly chopped
  • One 3-inch round, Brie cheese

Directions

  1. Combine brown sugar, corn syrup and butter in a small, heavy-bottomed saucepan set over medium heat. Stir mixture until it comes to a boil. Boil gently, without stirring, for 1 minute.
  2. Remove from heat and, shielding hands with oven mitts, quickly whisk in baking soda. Stir in salt and pecans until mixture begins to set, about 30 seconds.
  3. Working quickly, mound warm nut mixture on top of Brie and let caramel cascade down sides of cheese.
