  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cups bocconcini cheese I used mini bocconcini
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 1 bunch basil fresh
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper or to taste


  • Make Balsamic Glaze: In a small skillet add the balsamic vinegar and cook over medium heat until it has reduced down to half. Should take 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Assemble: Take a toothpick and stick a bocconcini, a basil leaf and a cherry tomato onto it. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  • Season: Season with salt and pepper.
  • Finish & Serve: Using a teaspoon drizzle some of the balsamic reduction onto each appetizer.


  1. Store the leftovers in the fridge for 3-5 days.
  2. Transfer your balsamic glaze to a jar or sealable bottle and store it in the fridge. It’ll last you 3-4 weeks.
