Easy Baked Brie with pecans and caramel sauce cooked in a microwave!
12 ounce round of Brie in a wooden box (the exact size can vary by an ounce or two)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup Kahlua (coffee liqueur)
1/2 cup pecan halves
Unwrap the Brie and slice the rind off the top. Place in the bottom of the wooden container and tie a piece of butcher’s twine around the box to secure it. Set aside.
Heat the brown sugar and Kahlua in a small saucepan, stirring and simmering until the sugar is dissolved. Mix in the pecans and let cool until the mixture thickens, but is still pourable.
Place the Brie in a small ovenproof/microwave safe container. Top with the caramel sauce and pecans.
Place the Brie in the microwave and set to cook 2 minutes, watching carefully and pulling out when cheese puffs slightly. Mine took about 1 1/2 minutes, but timing will vary. Brie should be soft, but not liquid.
Serve warm with crackers.
