One of my best friends, Amy, first introduced me to these beauties during my Bachelorette Party. We were having a pot luck for dinner and this was one of her contributions! My mom and I recreated the recipe a few weeks ago when I was home in PA for a jewelry party. I’m also bringing these over to Alicia’s tomorrow — it’ll be the first time our husbands meet!

Are you wondering about the string cheese? It is cheaper and still tastes great! Plus you can find part-skim string cheese and I haven’t seen part-skim fresh Mozzarella pearls.

Have you ever made Caprese anything? I love all variations of Caprese appetizers!

    I *LOVE* caprese everything… a grilled caprese sandwich, caprese salad, skewers, YUM. especially during the summer, when I have fresh romas and basil in my yard, you probably cannot come to my house without eating caprese SOMETHING. πŸ˜€
