“I based this recipe on an appetizer I'd tasted from a caterer - it was so good I had to make it myself. :) This'll be a hit at parties all year long! Prep time includes chilling for the salsa (which is good all by itself, by the way).”
1hr 35mins
1 batch appetizer brie

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all the salsa ingredients in a small saucepan and simmer together over medium low heat, stirring gently, for only 3 to 5 minutes to incorporate the flavors, then remove and chill for at least 90 minutes (you can make this the day before, as well).
  2. Use a sharp knife to skim and remove the soft white layer from the top of the brie.
  3. Place brie on a microwave-safe serving dish and microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute, depending on the power of your appliance, to soften the cheese (be careful- you don't want it to be runny).
  4. Pour the chilled raspberry salsa over the entire top, letting it run down the sides.
  5. Sprinkle the chopped honey roasted almonds over the top, serve with crackers or bread rounds, and enjoy!
