Pomegranate and Cranberry Brie

Hello 2017 Holiday Potlucks!

I’ll be here over the next few weeks posting my easy go-to recipes for those needing fun, festive items to bring to a holiday potluck. Let me introduce you to this easy, crowd pleasing, Christmas inspired brie.

This week, I attended a corporate potluck party that consisted of decorating, boozy nutmylk drinks and of course holiday snacks. My contribution: This holiday inspired ooey-gooey, Christmas colored brie. Did I mention you can prep this the day before. All you need is a microwave to reheat in the next day.
