  • 5 strawberries
  • 5 mini mozzarella balls
  • 5 pomegranate seeds
  • ½ tsp balsamic reduction or pomegranate molasses probably won't use all
  • 1 tbsp mascarpone cheese approx


  • Slice the stalk end off the strawberries. Cut a little off one side of the mozzarella balls so they have a flat edge then put a cocktail stick through the mozzarella ball and strawberry so the two flat edges join. Repeat with the rest. (If anything, have a bit of the cocktail stick poke out the bottom to help with holding and/or presenting in an up-turned half grapefruit.)
  • Make a slight indent in the middle of the mozzarella balls and press in the narrow end of the pomegranate seed in each one. Use the flat end of a cocktail stick to dab a little balsamic reduction or pomegranate molasses above for 'eyes'.
  • Spoon a little mascarpone on the end of the strawberry and serve.



(see video above)
Note - you will also need cocktail stick to assemble. You can make a sweet version by substituting marshmallows, chocolate and whipped cream. Increase quantities as needed.
