Up your appetizer game with a quick and easy recipe for creamy Whipped Brie topped with a drizzle of honey or jam.

A hand dips a toasty baguette into whipped Brie that's been garnished with cracked black pepper and drizzled with honey.

You may be familiar with whipped feta, but have you ever tried whipped Brie? This game-changing appetizer is my new quick and easy go-to for snacking and all things charcuterie.

It’s as simple (and, as I found out, as complicated) as whipping Brie cheese until it becomes pillowy soft. So you just toss some Brie into a stand mixer and crank it on, right? That’s a “yes,” that also comes with a “but…” You’ll need a few pro tips to guarantee success!

How to Whip Brie Cheese

There are two steps to this simple recipe:

  • Step 1: Removing the Rind
    • The Brie should be cold so that it’s easier to trim off the rind.
    • A serrated knife works best for this step.

  • Step 2: Beating the Brie
    • The Brie should be at room temp so that it mixes more smoothly
    • Attempting this technique with less than three (8-oz.) wheels of Brie will not lead to success! You need enough cheese so that it can (for lack of a better description) blend with itself and become smooth, airy and extra-creamy.
    • It will take a full 10 minutes beating in the stand mixer for the Brie to reach the ideal texture. It will also lighten significantly in color (pictured below).

Toppings for Whipped Brie

Remember all of the variations on butter boards? A bowl of Brie is your blank canvas! A few of my favorite toppings include:

  • Fresh herbs (thyme or rosemary)
  • Fresh berries (strawberries, blueberries or raspberries)
  • Roasted grapes
  • Toasted nuts (walnuts or pecans)

How to Use Whipped Brie

Two ideas immediately came to mind when I thought of ways to enjoy Brie beyond dipping and dunking into it as an appetizer:

… and I’m just getting started! I have not yet ventured beyond the appetizer realm with this creation, but you better believe I am up for the challenge. Stay tuned!

Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 0 mins
Servings 8 servings

Ingredients 

  • 3 (8-oz.) wheels Brie cheese, cold
  • Honey or jam, for garnishing
  • Toasts or crackers, for serving

Instructions 

  • Using a serrated knife, remove the entire rind from each wheel of Brie. Let the cheese come to room temp then add it to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment.
  • Beat the cheese on medium speed until it becomes smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides as needed, about 10 minutes. (See Kelly's Notes.)
  • Transfer the whipped Brie to a serving plate then drizzle with honey or jam and serve with toasts or crackers for dipping.

Kelly's Notes:

  • Do not try to halve this recipe. You need a minimum of three wheels of Brie so that it beats together in the stand mixer bowl and becomes light and pillowy.
  • The Brie will be very stiff once you start beating it. After 10 minutes, it will lighten in color and texture.
