A Collection of Easy and Delicious Dips

I love this easy appetizer that my friend Christine puts together! It is yummy, sweet, fast, and easy! So here I am sharing her secret with the world. I make this often when having guests over during the cooler months as the tastes complements fall and winter menus perfectly. Brie cheese and fall fruits – delicious! Really what is not to love!


Quoted from Christine…

I don’t do exact measurements, but it goes something like this:


  • 1 cube of butter
  • Brown sugar (probably about 1/2 a cup)
  • Craisins – 1 handful…raisins can also be substituted
  • Nuts – 1 handful…I usually use walnuts, but other nuts can be substituted
  • 1 apple peeled and cut up–I prefer a sour granny smith but whatever apple you have will work
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Small splash of vanilla extract
  • Squeeze of fresh lemon juice

That’s it!


  1. Throw it all in a saucepan and warm it up until it’s bubbly.
  2. Pour right over the round of brie
  3. Serve with butter crackers or whatever is your favorite!


Thanks, Christine! I love this recipe!
