Since I’m COMPLETELY OBSESSED with anything Caprese – ohhh please just give me that fresh basil aroma…combined with sweet juicy tomatoes…and creamy mozzarella….my love language for sure. 🍅🌱🧀
I saw this brilliant & fun idea the other day on my friend/fellow blogger @rosalynndaniels Instagram (GO FOLLOW HER she’s so inspiring and just an all-around beautiful person!) And immediately *KNEW* that I needed these in my life ❤❤❤
Make these lil’ cuties for Valentine or your Game Day this upcoming weekend!
I think they’d also be FAB drizzled in a good balsamic glaze!
Rachel’s Best Balsamic Reduction Recipe:
1/2 cup high-quality balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsps raw honey
Whisk balsamic vinegar and honey together in a very small saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil, immediately reduce heat to low, then simmer until the vinegar mixture has reduced about 8 minutes.
10 Valentine Caprese Skewers
10 grape tomatoes
20 mini mozzarella balls
fresh basil leaves
10 cocktail bamboo toothpicks
1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Slice each grape tomato in half diagonally, then put the two halves together to resemble a heart shape as shown in the video.
Thread them with a toothpick to keep the heart-shaped tomato together.
Add a mozzarella ball followed by basil leaves at each end of the skewer.
Lay your Valentine Caprese Skewers on a large platter and drizzle with a bit of extra virgin olive oil, your balsamic glaze if desired, then season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
