You guys, this dip. THIS BASIC BRIE DIP. This is totally the I got dumped, I wore a silk dress and it’s really hot and I have embarrassing pit stains, I hate my life, I’m in love with cat, OR, Yay! You got engaged friend, yay babies!, yay raise, yay life, I’m depressed, I’m really happy, epic dip. I am salivating while writing this because I remember the moment when this cheesy goodness laid upon my tongue and exploded my mind. How can you go wrong with brie, really? The chives are awesome, and the pecans give a nice crunch. We paired it with crostini, and apple slices, however, this is the kind of dip you can shove anything into it and it will still be delicious. Please make this.

Basic Baked Brie Dip

Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 20 mins
Servings: 7


  • 8 ounces triple cream brie, rind removed (room temperature)
  • 3 ounces mascarpone, softened
  • 2 teaspoons minced thyme
  • 1 teaspoon thinly sliced chives
  • salt and pepper to taste

cinnamon-spiced candied pecans

  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • 2 ½ tablespoons powdered sugar, sifted
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 375˚F.
  • Lightly grease a small shallow baking dish. Set aside.
  • Place brie, mascarpone, thyme, chives, salt, and pepper into a mixing bowl and mix together until fully incorporated.
  • Pour and evenly spread mixture into the baking dish and set aside.
  • Pour pecans into a skillet and place over medium heat. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over pecans followed by 2 to 3 teaspoons water (you want just enough water to wet cinnamon-sugar and coat pecans).
  • Toss until pecans are evenly coated. Continue to cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until coating has dried and pecans have toasted.
  • Sprinkle candied pecans over brie mixture and bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until dip is bubbly and gooey.
  • Allow dip to cool for 5 minutes before serving with crostini and green apple slices.

    This looks sooo good! But I don’t see the chives in the recipe- do you bake them or just sprinkle at the end?

    Holy. Crap. This looks so bomb! I love brie. Brie in a dip? Awesome!! Plus, then my husband can’t cheat and eat AROUND the rind when he’s snacking on regular brie. What is it with people that do that?! :)

    Gotta love Brie!

  23. Wendy Not Specified Not Specified

    I made this last night and it was really delicious. I used a 9″in baking dish but it seems that was a bit too big. The pecans are what make all the difference in this dish!

  24. Justine Not Specified Not Specified

    When I saw the preview pic, I thought it was little crispy bits of bacon on top. Since I don’t eat nuts, definitely going to try this with bacon. Looks delicious!

    I made this yesterday..I can’t figure out what i did wrong..The brie totally separated and I had an oily mess! I strained the cheese from the oil and although it looked terrible, it was quite tasty!!

    I tried making this last night for a party and had the same problem as the previous person. The brie looked fabulous before I put it in the oven and then it became a complete oily mess. I followed the directions exactly as written and am not sure where I went wrong. Do you think it was overcooked, undercooked, or do you have any other recommendations? I doubled the recipe for a larger group and would love to get it right next time! Thanks.

    Is the Marscapone just to smooth it out? I wonder if you could use “spreadable” brie instead. I have a giant US Foods tub of it from a catering my husband did and looking to use it up…

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      I like the texture you get from the mixture of both combined, but the tub of spreadable Brie (aside from sounding like heaven) should work just fine!
