This classic appetizer is a no-fail way to make your guests enjoy your party even more.

They’re crunchy and golden on the outside, and ooey-gooey on the inside. To say they’re addictive is an understatement.

These bites are scrumptious enough as they are, but are even more amazing when dunked in marinara.

The sauce adds a refreshing flavor to the otherwise ultra-rich morsels. Together, they create the perfect balance.

I don’t know why, but I find skewers so enchanting. It doesn’t even matter what they are – savory kebabs, fresh fruits, vegetables – I love them all.

These Caprese skewers are no exception. The colors alone are already captivating.

Green, red, and white make such an enticing combination!

Then there’s the flavor. Tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella are drizzled with a sweet balsamic reduction.

7. Marinated Mozzarella Balls

Have you ever heard of bocconcini? If you haven’t you’re in for a treat.

Mozzarella balls are marinated in olive oil seasoned with herbs and spices.

Mozzarella has a very mild taste, so the marinade helps a lot in elevating its flavor.

Sun-dried tomatoes, parsley, red pepper flakes, and oregano are just some of the few flavors you can expect from this greatness.

You can serve these balls at room temperature, but you can also enjoy them chilled for a unique experience.

It’s an easy appetizer that requires very little effort. Minimal effort, maximum flavor – that’s my kind of recipe.

9. Mozzarella, Pepperoni & Olive Bites

First of all, how charming are these skewers? The combination of cream, black, and red is just enticing.

More importantly, it tastes amazing. Creamy mozzarella, salty and spicy pepperoni, and briny olives all join forces to make these epic bites. 

Best of all, there’s no cooking required! Just gather the ingredients and thread them in toothpicks, and voila.

From the presentation to the flavor, these get an A+ for sure. Serve them at your next party and they’ll be an instant hit.

The puff pastry is nice and flaky, while the filling is wonderfully salty, savory, rich, and creamy.
