  • 1/8 to 1/4 cup sweetened dried cranberries
  • 1/8 to 1/4 cup dry roasted macadamia nuts
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons caramel sauce
  • 1 wheel of brie
  • Crackers, preferably of the buttery variety


  1. Place dried cranberries in a small dish of hot water to soak for a few minutes. You can skip this step if you’re in a big rush.
  2. Place unwrapped brie in the center of a large plate and microwave on high for 1 minute. Give it a little poke in the center. If it feels soft and squishy, you’re set. If not, continue to microwave for 30 second intervals until it’s gooey all the way through. It shouldn’t take very long.
  3. Drain the water from your dried cranberries and dump them on a cutting board. Add the mac nuts to the pile, and give everything a rough chop. How rough or fine is totally up to you.
  4. Drizzle some caramel sauce straight on to your brie. Pile your mac nuts and cranberries on top. It’s totally fine if they artfully spill over. Give the top another drizzle of caramel sauce.
  5. Surround the whole mess with some buttery crackers, cut out a skinny wedge, pope it on a cracker, hand it to your favorite person, and witness the whole crowd swoon.
