It’s December! Can you believe it? It just kind of crept up on me and now I’m charging full scale into Christmas baking and whipping up some tasty appetizers for holiday parties. This Kahlua Pecan Baked Brie is one of my favorites. I usually serve it along side some crispy Crab Wonton Cups and Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms.

It’s easy to make and looks like an elegant appetizer that took hours to make. Ahem, don’t tell anyone but it only takes about 15 minutes. That can be our little secret.

The prep is mostly hands off and while you’re prepping, you can bake the brie wheel so it’s all ready for the deliciously sweet and nutty topping. It’s a great addition to a cheese tray and a glass (or two) of wine or a holiday Cranberry Mimosa.

    That sounds so good, and I don’t even like coffee! I love how it’s so easy, but still looks impressive.

      It’s great for parties and I haven’t found anyone yet that doesn’t like it. Even my daughter, who also doesn’t like coffee, really likes it.
