These delicious and refreshing bites are the perfect finger food for any party. The sweet balsamic reduction provides the perfect balance to this easy app!
1 pint Grape Tomatoes
1 bunch Fresh Basil
1 8oz container Fresh Mozzarella Pearls (or, 1 fresh ball of Fresh Mozzarella)
1/2 cup Balsamic Vinegar
1 tbsp Honey
1 tsp Corn Starch
1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper
If you are unable to find the mozzarella pearls (like these), cut up a fresh ball of mozzarella into bite-sized pieces. Assemble the caprese sticks (make sure to put the basil in the middle, so it stays in place). Arrange them on a platter.
Then, in a small sauce pan, whisk together the balsamic, honey, and cornstarch, and bring the mixture to a boil. Remove from heat, and you will notice it immediately thickens. Let cool, then whisk in the olive oil until it creates a syrup. Drizzle the balsamic mixture over the caprese bites, and then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
