Slow Cooker Brie



I LOVE BRIE. I seriously would eat this everyday if I could. I had seen a variety of different recipes for brie in the slow cooker on several sites (365 days of slow cooking, Recipe.com and The Cooks Next Door) and I combined them all to make my own recipe using what I had. It was DIVINE!


1 round of brie (must be a round...not the huge one)

2TBS balsamic vin.

3TBS dark brown sugar

1 tsp Thyme

2 tsp water

1/2 cup dried cranberries (could use any dried fruit...apricots etc.)

1/4 cup crumbled walnuts (could use pecans)


Make a tin foil bowl and place brie in tin bowl in the crock. Make sure you cut off the top part of the brie so the hard stuff is off the top. Stir together, brown sugar, balsamic vin, water and thyme. Pour on top of brie in tin foil bowl. sprinkle cranberries and nuts on top. cook on low for 1.5-2 hours. Serve with crackers or apples or both! Would be great with french bread too.
