Baked brie is one of our favorite appetizers. We like to drizzle a round of brie with our shugas and bake it for just a few minutes. Simple, delicious, soo soo good.

For a more impressive topping, we also caramelize pecans with our shugas and them place them atop the brie before baking it. The result will be an incredibly delicious combination of sweet and savory flavors, as well as smooth and crunchy texture.

What’s more impressive is how easy this topping can be made. Toast the pecans, sprinkle some salt, drizzle the shuga and let it caramelize. By using a liquid sweetener like ours there will be no need to use butter and sugar. All you will need is our shuga.
