"A fun dip/spread that's savoury, sweet and spicy. I invented this while playing mad scientist in the kitchen. It goes well with crackers and fresh fruit (pears, apples, etc.)."

"This savoury dip is just so good! I skipped the green onion and used an extra tablespoon of pepper jelly and it's just right for us. I'm serving this with Triscuits tonight for an appetizer at Thanksgiving dinner. Made for Think Pink 2011. Thanks Picholine! :)"
"Saw French Tart's picture and had to try this and so very glad I did. Made as directed using recipe#2686 and loved it. Just enough of a bite to set pf tje brie without burning. Served with crackers and apples slices from our orchard. Wonderful, I recommend everyone try this one out. Made for Think Pink -09"
"The taste it terrrific, TRUE! I did something I normally don't do! I THOUGHT hot pepper jelly was the same as chilli wine liquer jelly too, Came out FANTASTIC! Would HIGHLY recommend recipe to do! THANKS!"
"Fabulous and what fun! I did not have any red pepper jelly, it is VERY hard to find in France, so I used some Chinese sweet chilli sauce, tabasco and a tablespoon of home-made sour cherry jam..............they were all VERY red or pink, and my dip was VERY pink too!! We ate this with cubes of French bread and slices of pear and apples. I did not have any green onions either, so I used minced dried PINK shallots - which really enhanced the flavour. Made for Think Pink Breast Cancer Tag Game in the TOTM - and VERY much enjoyed - certainly a new way to serve brie for me, although I am not sure what my French neighbours would think if they knew! FT:-)"
"Mmmmmmm, very nice! I used an all natural strawberry hot pepper jelly. I really like the onion-y hit. I halved the recipe and the only change I made was using just a dash of salt (kosher) and the full amount of pepper (I love pepper). Enjoyed with club crackers. Thanks for the recipe Picholine!"
"This was so delicious Picholine. I really enjoyed this tasty dip, I loved the addition of the green onions. The dip was sweet, sour, tangy, tart, savory and oh so satisfying. I served it with rosemary & salt bagel crackers and celery sticks, both were wonderful accompaniments. Thanks for sharing this quick and easy to make dish."
"Picholine, we just loved this recipe. I did leave out the green onions and garlic (some picky kids at our Easter gathering), but the combination of brie, cream cheese (I used neufchatel), butter, salt, pepper, and the jelly was delicious. I found a cherry/hot pepper jelly that I used, and it was just perfect with the new Carr's Rosemary crackers, and fruit slices (apples, pears, and strawberries). The lovely pink shade also made it perfect for a spring buffet. Thank you so much for sharing this - I will make it often (it's already been requested for future gatherings). I might even consider a sprinkle of chipotle powder for just a tad more heat. Wonderful!"
