The Big Game is upon us and I really don’t think anyone is more excited than me! While I'm not excited for the game, I'm excited for the FOOD! Nothing beats a coffee table full of tasty treats, beverages and glorious goodies. 

I’m about to share with you the first thing on my game day menu, which combines America's favorite beverage, Coca-Cola, and ooey-gooey melted brie cheese nestled in a soft puff pastry. It’s a super simple bite-size snack sensation that won’t disappoint.

These little nuggets will no doubt be this year’s champions at your Big Game celebration, and will most definitely be devoured before halftime. Make lots, and prepare to be tackled the moment you bring these babies out to the table. Each cheesy bite is as light as air and delicately drizzled with a sweet Coca-Cola glaze that's out of this world.  

Get your game day goodies on and be the MVP of your house!

Recipe



Ingredients

Servings:
  • 1 package of puff pastry cups
  • 1 wheel of brie cheese, rind removed
  • 1 Cup Coca-Cola
  • 1.5 Cup brown sugar


Directions

  • Total Time: 40 min
  • Prep Time: 5 min
  • Cook Time: 35 min
  1. Place the pastry cups onto a sheet pan and bake them according to the package instructions. Set aside. While the pastry cups are baking, make the Coca-Cola glaze: mix the Coke and brown sugar in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer for approximately 30 minutes, or until thick. Occasionally stir. Cut the skinned brie cheese wheel into small cubed pieces that will fit inside the pastry cups. You will need one cube for each puff pastry cup. When ready, stuff each cup with a single cube and then place them back into a warm oven until melted. Now, drizzle each brie pastry puff with some of the Coca-Cola glaze and serve them up. Trust me, they will only get better with time as the glaze becomes almost candy-like! Perfect for watching football watching. Enjoy!
