Holly & Heather’s Helpful Hint: Small Bites

by helpinghandstwins

We love to entertain and with Easter behind us we thought we’d blog about some of the small treats we enjoyed that day as well as give some “helpful hint” ideas to all the entertaining that lies ahead of us! Memorial Day will soon be here….

Rosemary Mozzarella Skewers

Mozzarella balls, cherry tomatoes, fresh basil leaves, fresh rosemary sprigs, balsamic vinaigrette

Using the rosemary sprigs as “skewers”, alternate mozzarella, tomato and basil. Drizzle with vinaigrette before serving.

Easy Chocolate Mousse

6 oz. 72% dark chocolate bars, 3 tbsp. sugar (sugar in the raw recommended), 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream

Cut up the chocolate into little pieces and place in a glass bowl. Heat the sugar and a half cup of the cream and then add it to the chocolate and stir well until all is melted and blended together. Put the remaining cup of cream in a bowl and blend until stiff. Pour in the chocolate mixture to the whipped cream and combine. Divide up the mousse into little jars and refrigerate until serving time.
