    How pretty are these colourful kebabs?  They're perfect for the kids at your New Year's Eve party.  I love hosting holiday parties with nothing but beautiful, bite-sized, delicious hors d'oeuvres, and the food for the kids should be every bit as special and fancy as the "grown-up" food.

    Prep Time:
    Servings: 1 dozen skewers

    Ingredients:

    • fresh mozzarella cheese, drained and cut into 1 dozen cubes (or fresh mozzarella balls the size of cherries): 4 ounces, or 1 dozen balls
    • fresh blackberries, washed and dried: 2 dozen
    • fresh mint leaves, washed and dried: 2 dozen
    • strawberry jam: about 1 teaspoon
    • small skewers or cocktail toothpicks: 1 dozen

    Directions:

    Step 1: Get all of your ingredients ready so you can easily assemble the kebabs.

    Step 2: Gently slide a blackberry horizontally on the skewer or toothpick.  Then carefully add a mint leaf, followed by the mozzarella and a second mint leaf.  Slide one more blackberry on after the mint, horizontally.  

    Step 3:  Use a small spoon or your finger to add a dab of the strawberry jam on one side of each piece of mozzarella. 

    You can make these up to 2 hours ahead of time.  Keep them in the refrigerator until you're ready to serve.
