Caprese Kabobs

Caprese Kabobs

I hate to break it to you people, but the Holidays are upon us if we like it or not.

Holidays mean parties and parties mean food and you will look like a real looser if you show up to a party empty handed, so my I suggest these super easy Caprese Kabobs??!?

And aren’t they festive looking with all that red, white and green?

These are obviously a no-cook appetizer which is super bonus points in my book.

Go to the grocery store and grab yourself 2 pints of cherry tomatoes, a package of mozzarella pearls and 2 big bunches of basil. I’m sure you have toothpicks on hand, but if you don’t, grab those too.

Poke a hole in the very tip of a leaf of basil with a toothpick.

And then secure it all together by poking a hole at the other end of the basil.

Told you it was easy!

Oh and try to find these mozzarella pearls. They will make your life easier because you won’t have to cut each piece of mozzarella.
