Candy Corn Caprese

By 03/30/2023July 3rd, 2024No Comments

Not all Halloween food requires days of prep and extra tools and equipment to make. Sometimes all you need is a few choice ingredients that are easy to come by, like tomatoes! When I saw some yellow and orange tomatoes, I couldn’t resist making these super simple Candy Corn Caprese bites for our Candy Corn themed menu. I spent a little time cutting them in order to make them bite sized but seriously this is not necessary, simply skewer the whole tomatoes with a mozzarella ball and serve them on a bed of basil leaves with balsamic glaze and call it a day. Easy Breezy! Happy Halloween!

I experimented in cutting the yellow tomatoes lengthwise to create a wider base to mimic candy corn. 😉
