Caramel Apple & Brie Skewers
I made these for two totally different events; a baby shower and a 30th birthday party. They were a hit at both. Everyone raved about them and they were devoured! You can pre-cut your and apples and toss them with a little lemon juice to keep from browning, which is a great time saving tip when entertaining. Then just assemble and serve.
2 medium apples, cubed (I used a red & a green to make them extra pretty)
1 pkg (6oz) Brie cheese, cubed
1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping (more or less to taste)
2 Tbsp. dried cranberries
1/2 cup macadamia nuts (optional, I didn't use)
On each of six small wooden skewers, alternately thread apple and cheese cubes. Place on a serving tray. Drizzle with caramel topping; sprinkle with cranberries and nuts if using them.
