Honey-Drizzled Baked Brie With Cherries

Honey Drizzled Baked Brie was compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. 

I absolutely love cheese. I enjoy trying the different textures and tastes of cheeses from around the world. Someone needs to give me a cheese of the month subscription.

I once served a beautiful cheese tray to 70 women during a 7-course French meal that I prepared from scratch. I enjoyed watching them try cheeses they had never tasted.

Brie Cheese

There’s one cheese that’s always the star of my charcuterie board and that’s Brie. It’s a soft, mild, cow’s milk cheese that’s named after Brie, the French region from which it originated.

I  drizzle the Brie with honey, place it in the oven for about 5-6 minutes, and top it with walnuts and cherries. Forget dinner, just give me the cheese tray! I truly understand why it’s referred to as “The queen of cheese.”

Ingredients For Honey Drizzled Baked Brie (Full Recipe Below!)

  • 1 (8 oz.) Wheel of Brie cheese
  • Honey
  • Walnut halves (shelled)
  • Baguette Slices or Assorted Crackers
  • Fresh Cherries, pitted and halved
  • Balsamic vinegar

Helpful Hint: When baking Brie, be careful not to overcook it or it will melt completely and you’ll have a pool of cheese. On the other hand, I might enjoy diving into a pool of cheese.

I like to serve this Brie on a charcuterie board. Baked Brie is deliciously served with thin baguette slices. Or add some assorted crackers.

Updated Recipe for Honey-Drizzled Baked Brie

I posted my original recipe for baked brie back in 2015. Because I love cherries, I’ve recently updated this recipe. So, you have a choice. You can make the original recipe or try adding the cherries. 

You’ll need a 3/4 cup of pitted, halved fresh cherries and a teaspoon of balsamic vinegar.

Fre Merlot Pairs Perfectly With Honey-Drizzled Baked Brie

Honey-Drizzled Brie pairs perfectly with Merlot and I always receive rave reviews on an appetizer that only takes a few minutes to put together.

I also include a chilled bottle of Fre Chardonnay, in case someone wanted a glass of white wine.  As a rule of thumb, reds are served at room temperature and whites are served chilled. Fruit and assorted crackers complete the cheese tray and give it a finished look.

Here’s the deal: I really like the taste of wine, but I don’t consume alcohol. I am elated about Fre Alcohol-Removed Wines.  Fre is the perfect beverage to enjoy during the summer.

Merlot & Honey-Drizzled Brie

I spent a little time on Fre’s website (it’s really pretty and has some great recipes) checking out the variety of alcohol removed wines and was fascinated by the process involved in removing the alcohol.  

The winemakers use a “revolutionary spinning cone column to remove alcohol while preserving the delicate fragrances and flavors of the wine.

The finished product is a fresh, delicious beverage with all of the characteristic aromas and flavors of premium wine, but with less than 0.5% alcohol and half the calories of traditional wine.” I’m thoroughly impressed.

Fre Merlot & Honey Drizzled Baked Brie really does satisfy my cheese & wine craving. You’ll also find mocktails and all kinds of great info when you follow Fre over on their Facebook page.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350º.
  2. Combine the balsamic vinegar, honey, and cherries in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10-12 minutes, until the juices are slightly thickened.

If you don't like cherries, you can leave off the cherries and balsamic vinegar. Just bake the brie according to the recipe directions. Drizzle the baked brie with honey and sprinkle with walnuts before serving.

This looks so delicious! I’m a huge fan of brie and could easily make this my dinner plans almost every night. lol I love the simple honey drizzled recipe and would probably have this as a meal, let alone an appetizer! lol

Zan August 7, 2015 - 8:56 am

Love your funny story of your love for cheese. This looks really good and presented well. Makes a great nibble tray! I have seen this type of cheese but never bought it. I love the idea of adding honey and nuts. BTW: I never knew there was such a thing as alcohol-removed wine. Who knew?

Christy Maurer August 7, 2015 - 9:44 am

Oh my, that looks so good! I am always very sad when people say they don’t like cheese. I feel so sorry that they are missing out on all of the deliciousness that is cheese 🙂

Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle August 7, 2015 - 9:59 am

This is the perfect foundation for a spectacular night, in my opinion. It sounds delicious, and it is delightfully fancy.

You had me a brie! This seriously looks like a great pairing and I bet the honey really sets of the flavors of the brie!

So fancy schmacny, but so simple, too! I love it! Now excuse me while I go see if we have any cheese…

Katie August 7, 2015 - 11:58 pm

I love cheese too. When I have to pick up something quick to take to a friends I hit up the fancy cheese at Publix. making this Bri would be even better.

Ourfamilyworld August 8, 2015 - 4:15 am

I love cheese, too and Brie is one of my favorites. This is mouth watering and I am suddenly craving for cheese and fruits.

lisa @bitesforbabies August 8, 2015 - 9:54 am

I used to make baked brie ALL the time..I always topped it with some kind of fruit and nuts. The addition of wine sounds delicious!

Uplifting Families August 9, 2015 - 12:32 am

I haven’t had brie cheese before. In fact, I haven’t purchased any speciality cheese unless you consider peppeejack. 🙂

I had no clue that wine was served chilled or unchilled based on its color. I prefer it to be cold, the colder the better for me. I don’t drink it often but when I do I like a sweet fruity wine.

Rosey August 9, 2015 - 7:19 am

Brie is my favorite cheese for an appetizer. I haven’t had it in far too long!

Lynndee August 9, 2015 - 11:35 am

I love cheese, but I’m not sure if I’ve already had Brie. I will have to check that out. And for sure, my husband would love to check that wine out. He loves wine you know. 🙂

Erin August 9, 2015 - 3:08 pm

Oh brie. I love brie. I almost bought some yesterday and then talked myself out of it since I’m supposed to limit dairy but this recipe may have broken my willpower. lol!

Allie August 10, 2015 - 1:40 pm

Yum and thanks for sharing at the Home Matters Party. This recipe would be perfect for the upcoming fall entertaining I plan on doing.

Adrienne August 10, 2015 - 11:26 pm

This looks amazing! The little bird decor on the wine glass is soooo CUTE! I completely want to come to one of your parties! hehe

Sherry August 16, 2015 - 2:09 pm

Just love brie prepared anyway. Never tried it with honey, but I will for sure! Thanks for sharing with us at Merry Monday:-)
