A crunchy, creamy, salty, sweet, bite-sized appetizer kicked up a notch with a little cherry jalapeno jelly.

For Thanksgiving I fell in love with the Baked Brie Bites topped with cranberry jelly from A Spicy Perspective. Since the Big Game is this weekend, I thought it would be fun to kick it up a notch and do a cherry jalapeno version.

Baked Cherry Jalapeno Brie Bites

A couple of years ago, I made a luscious Brie En Croute with a cranberry pepper jelly and candied nuts. These Baked Brie Bites are essentially the same appetizer only in an easy to serve, bite-size portion. And they so much easier to make because they start with frozen fillo shells.

Add these to your menu for the big game. You’ll be glad you did.

Yield: 15 bites

Baked Cherry Jalapeno Brie Bites

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 box mini fillo Shells (15 shells)
  • 4 oz. brie cheese, rind removed, cut into cut into 1/2 cubes
  • 1/2 cup cherry jalapeno jelly

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°.
  2. Combine the pecans and sugar in a small skillet. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until the sugar starts to liquefy. Continue stirring constantly until the liquid reaches a golden color and coats the nuts. Remove from heat and spread candied nuts onto a greased or silpat lined cookie sheet, and allow to cool. Stir occasionally as nuts cool to break up large pieces.
  3. Place the fillo shells on a baking sheet. Place one piece of brie in each mini fillo shell. Bake for 5 minutes, until the brie is melted.
  4. Remove from the oven and top melted brie with a spoonful of jelly and candied pecans. Serve warm.

    Perfect party food! I don’t have the cherry jalapeno, but I have some apricot habanero that will do in a pinch. And that gives me a great idea of what kind of jam I’m making next summer when cherries and jalapenos are in season!

    These look so delicious! I love those little frozen filo cups :) I have not seen cherry jalapeno jelly in my area. Did you make that or buy it? If you bought it, can you tell me where please? Thanks!
