When the first thing out of Boyfriend’s mouth when he enters the kitchen is “OH MY GOD, ARE YOU TRYING TO KILL ME WITH CUTENESS!?” I consider that a win.
This army of cuteness couldn’t be easier to assemble, nor more delicious. Cherry tomatoes and basil are two things I pretty much always have on hand, I just happened to have a container of boccacini hanging out in the fridge that I just had to use up, so out came these little guys.
Sweet, salty, creamy…. perfect.
I wish I had more to say about them, but I just don’t. I think the pictures sum it up pretty good.
So the “recipe” if you’d like to call it that is as such
Cute Caprese Bites
- 12 cherry tomatoes
- 12 boccacini balls
- 12 leafs of basil
- Fleur de sel (optional)
- Good quality balsamic vinegar (optional)
Cut cherry tomatoes in half, sprinkle boccacini with sea salt.
Place boccacini on bottom half of cherry tomato, top with basil leaf, and replace top of tomato. Skewer with a toothpick (or something fancier if you wish).
Sprinkle with sea salt and drizzle with balsamic vinegar. I suspect a drizzle of pesto might not be a bad idea either… ooh, or maybe pesto and balsamic on the side so you can dip into whichever you prefer… mmm
If you can’t find boccacini, just cube some fresh mozzarella and call it a day.
