While some people go crazy for pumpkin spice in the fall, I’m a bigger fan of caramel apples and all things apple spice. (If you haven’t tried my caramel appl cider slushies or my red hot apple martinis, add them to your “must-make” list for the fall. You won’t be disappointed.)
This nutty, caramel apple baked brie is such a great recipe for fall gatherings and a wonderful addition to a cheese board any time of year. Like my other baked brie recipe, this appetizer preps in no time and is ready to serve in 10 to 15 minutes, as soon as the cheese melts in the oven.
Serve it in a cast iron skillet or brie baker with bread, crisp apple slices, pita chips and apple chips fanned out around the cheese. This makes for a gorgeous presentation — oozing cheese topped with chopped apples and a pecan-caramel topping.
I first shared this recipe last fall in Autumn Decorating issue of Country Sampler magazine, and I’m excited to finally be able to share it here, as well. You can find a step-by-step video from the magazine’s Facebook page showing how to make it in the recipe card at the end of this post.

To Make caramel apple baked brie, You Will Need:
- A wheel of brie cheese – You can use a 8-ounce or larger round wheel of brie cheese for this recipe. You may need to increase the other ingredient amounts if you’re using a larger wheel of cheese.
- Chopped pecans – Use coarsely chopped pecans
- Caramel sauce – You can make your own caramel sauce or use a premade ice cream topping
- Tart apples – You can’t go wrong with Granny Smiths for this recipe. The tartness provides a nice balance to the sweet topping. Slice extra to serve with the brie.
- Cinnamon – Just a touch of cinnamon adds another depth of flavor to the dish
- Brown sugar – Light brown sugar adds a rich sweetness to the recipe
- Butter – I prefer unsalted butter for most recipes
- Dried apple chips – Plain or cinnamon-sugar dried apple chips pair well with the brie cheese
- Pita chips and cubed bread – In addition to apple slices, include an assortment of hearty cubed bread and pita chips for serving
- Cast iron skillet or brie baker – Choose a pan that is not much larger in diameter than the wheel of brie cheese
How to Make Caramel Apple Brie Appetizer
- Slice the wheel of brie cheese in half horizontally, as if you were cutting a bagel.
- Combine chopped apple, pecans, brown sugar and cinnamon, then add the melted butter. Stir to combine.
- Place half of the brie, with the white rind facing down, in a small cast iron skillet or baking dish. Spread half of the apple mixture on the cheese, then top with the other half of the brie, rind side up.
- Spoon the rest of the apple mixture onto the top of the brie and drizzle with caramel sauce. Garnish with additional chopped pecans, if you like.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes, until the cheese begins to melt.
- Serve with cinnamon apple chips, cinnamon sugar pita chips, bread or apple slices.
If you’d like a little more caramel apple flavor, feel free to drizzle more caramel sauce between the layers of the brie and over top of the baked cheese.
You may want to serve the baked brie alongside a jar of warmed caramel sauce so people can add more to suit their tastes.
Any leftover baked brie can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container and reheated in the oven or the microwave.
