I saw this on TikTok and had to try it. It looked so easy. Cut off the casing, let the brie sit a bit, whip it up, and serve.

The Road to Perfect Whipped Brie

But after four batches of failed, curdled, lumpy, and just kinda gross whipped brie, I realized it wasn’t actually all that simple. Now that I’ve done the wasting of money and cursing for you, take my advice, follow it, and enjoy your whipped brie that really is easy.

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

There are so many reasons — I mean, who doesn’t love indulging in creamy brie cheese.

  • Easy – Once you get the brie to the right temperature to mix it, you’ll see that this is as easy as it gets to make an amazing appetizer.
  • Convenient – There are just a handful of simple ingredients that are easy to find at the grocery store.
  • Delicious – This smooth, creamy brie is absolutely irresistible.

Tips for Whipped Brie

With just a few ingredients, this recipe is super simple, but we have a few pointers to make it totally foolproof.

  • Goldilocks of Brie – Warmed brie can often take on a weird texture after it cools, so it needs to be enjoyed while hot. Room-temperature brie can be cakey and dry. Whipped brie meets in the middle with great texture, and it lasts longer.
  • Use a double or triple cream brie. This yielded the best, silky results.
  • Use a serrated knife to cut off the casing while the cheese is still cold. Pry up little embedded bits after the cheese has softened to prevent wasting precious brie.
  • Use the whisk or paddle attachment on a stand mixer at low speed. It takes about 10 minutes, so you can do this with an electric mixer, but you’ll stand there the whole time. I’m not sure you’ll have enough arm power to do this by hand.
  • Do NOT use a food processor. Perhaps mine is just too high-powered, but after 5 minutes, the brie was so agitated that it heated, separated, and curdled.
  • Use enough brie. You need a larger portion for it to be able to whip properly — I’d use a minimum of 13 ounces.
  • Do not let the brie get too warm, and DO NOT microwave it to make it warmer faster. It will separate when you whip it.

Topping Ideas for Whipped Brie

Anything you put on cold brie or baked brie can be used on this whipped brie recipe. Here are a few of my favorite flavor combinations. Also, consider using my apricot cranberry brie topping.

With just a few simple ingredients, you can make the most decadent cheese dish to serve at parties — or keep all to yourself.

  • Double cream brie cheese – This type of brie has the perfect amount of creaminess to create the ideal texture when it’s whipped.
  • Fig jam – This sweet jam perfectly complements the rich brie.
  • Salted pistachios – Salty flavor and crunch texture helps to balance out the dish.
  • Honey – Honey is a classic accompaniment to brie and helps to bring out the flavors of the nuts and jam.

How to Make Whipped Brie

You’ll hardly have to dirty any dishes to make this simple whipped brie cheese recipe.

  1. Remove rind. Use a serrated knife to remove the rind from the cold brie.
  2. Add cheese to plate. Place cheese on a plate or cutting board to allow it to come closer to room temperature.
  3. Whip cheese in mixer. Transfer the cheese to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk or paddle attachment. Adjust the mixer to the recommended setting an allow it to whip for the recommended time. 
  4. Return to bowl. Periodically scrape the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. When finished mixing, use the same spatula to transfer the whipped cheese to a serving bowl or platter. 
  5. Add jam to well. Press down the center of the brie to create a well. Spoon the fig jam into the well, then add the pistachios and honey. 

What to Serve with Whipped Brie

Both homemade pita bread or garlic rosemary focaccia bread are great choices to go with whipped brie. Just toast them until warm and crisp, then spread the brie over top. 

You can also just slice a store-bought baguette and make crostini — just place the baguette slices on a baking sheet and bake until golden brown. Or, instead of bread, try serving fresh vegetables. Cucumber slices and celery both work well.

You can also serve sliced fresh fruit or fruit salad, or make it the centerpiece of a cheese board with other spreads and assorted nuts.

Once you get the hang of making this brie, experiment with other flavor profiles.

  • Savory – Try adding fresh herbs, infused salts, black pepper, or diced olives for a totally different take. 
  • Serving – Serve in a bread bowl. 
  • Honey – Use a drizzle of honey infused with other flavors. For a spicy, savory version, try using hot honey.
  • Cream cheese – For a touch of tanginess, try adding a dollop or two of cream cheese or goat cheese when mixing the brie dip.
  • Creaminess – For even more creamy texture, try using one of your favorite triple cream brie cheeses instead.
  • Jam – Choose one of your favorite jams instead of using fig jam. Tart raspberry jam works well.
  • Spiciness – For a little bit of spicy flavor, try drizzling the brie with chili oil. You can also mix in crushed red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper.

Storage, Make Ahead and Freezing 

We think It’s pretty unlikely that you’ll have leftovers! But if you do, you can store them in the refrigerator.

Make-Ahead: Whip the brie up to 24 hours ahead of time and store in the refrigerator. Allow it to come to room temperature before serving.

Refrigerator: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Freezer: We do not recommend freezing baked brie.

Common Questions About Whipped Brie

What is brie wrapped in?

Brie is wrapped in a thick rind which is an edible mold.

What is the easiest way to remove brie rind?

First, place the brie on a cutting board with a flat side down. Then, using a sharp knife, slice off the top of the rind. 

Next, flip the brie over and slice off the top portion of the rind. Then, slide the knife under the remaining rind and circle around to loosen it from the cheese before peeling it away.

Can I eat brie if I’m allergic to penicillin?

While the mold is created by using strains from the Penicillium group, the rind does not contain the same properties as the antibiotic.

    Oooh, I’ve tried whipped feta, but not whipped brie yet! That looks fantastic, especially paired with the fig jam, pistachios, and honey.
