Cranberry Brie Bites

Sharing is caring!

Sparkling cranberry brie bites is one of my all time favorite dishes to make when entertaining during the holidays.

Not only is it a beautiful dish, but it’s very tasty, too!

I discovered this hors d’oeuvre at a catered holiday event I attended about 5 years ago.

I love cranberries. (See my other cranberry recipes HERE , HERE and HERE.)

So this sparkly treat had me at first sight!

During the event, I remained so close to the table where this appetizer was being served so I wouldn’t miss a bite!
