Keep this at a low setting in a fondue pot or small slow cooker so the mixture doesn't bubble too much and stick to the bottom. Serve with crackers, flatbread or toasted slices of French bread.

Cut off rind from Brie; chop Brie and cream cheese into small cubes. Cover and set aside to let come to room temperature, about 20 minutes.

Pick through crab to remove any shell or cartilage; drain, pressing to remove as much liquid as possible. Set aside.

In large skillet, heat butter over medium heat; fry onions and garlic, stirring often, until softened, about 5 minutes.

Stir in Brie, cream cheese, cream, wine, mustard and hot pepper sauce; cook, mashing with back of spoon and stirring constantly, just until melted.

Remove from heat; stir in crab and Parmesan cheese. Scrape into fondue pot. Keep warm on medium-low setting. (Make-ahead: Let cool. Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)
