Brown Sugar (Splenda) Baked Brie with Almonds

This is a very easy recipe. You can NOT screw this up! We served this at an art gallery for opening nights and always was a hit. I also recommend using low sodium/sugar free orange marmalade instead of the Splenda/Dijon mixture.

Bottom: Brie cheese wheel or wedge

1 cup of brown sugar (really use brown Splenda)
1/4 cup Dijon mustard

Topping: sliced or slivered almonds

There are 2 versions to this recipe:

1. Use a brie wheel and put it in the oven at 425 for 8-10 mins with the mixture covering the top of the brie and bake. Sprinkle with almonds when out of oven.

2, Use a brie wedge, place on plate, put in microwave for 1-2 mins until soft and starting to melt, slather with mixture and sprinkle with almonds.

When done baking/nuking and sprinkling sliced almonds, surround the cheese with cut veggies such as carrots, broccoli, celery. Use a spreader to break into the cheese, rind and all and cover your veggies for a special treat!
