Makes 24 blinis


1 packet Marcel’s Fancy Blinis (in your supermarket’s freezer section)

24 slices fresh mozzarella (around 8 small sized balls)

12 large cherry tomatoes

24 basil leaves

1 cup balsamic vinegar

¼ cup honey


Make balsamic reduction by heating vinegar and honey in small pot over high heat. Bring to boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until vinegar has reduced to 1/3 cup (about 10 min). Leave to cool.

Heat blinis according to packet directions.

Top blinis with slice of mozzarella, half a cherry tomato and a basil leaf, then drizzle with balsamic reduction to serve. Any remaining balsamic reduction can be reduced in the fridge.
