Ingredients

  • 12 Small ripe strawberries hulled*
  • 12 Basil leaves
  • 12 Chunks of Brie about the width of the strawberries
  • Balsamic glaze or reduced balsamic vinegar** - see note
  • 12 Toothpicks

Instructions

  • On a toothpick, slice a strawberry. Fold a basil leaf in half and slide it next to the strawberry, then finish by sliding a piece of Brie. Place on platter. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Drizzle with balsamic glaze.

Notes

*If you have larger strawberries, simply slice them into bite size chunks and continue with recipe. If that is the case then increase the amounts of the other ingredients. 
To make a balsamic glaze:
**If you don’t have a thick balsamic aged vinegar, simply put a cup of regular balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan or skillet. A skillet produces a faster result because it allows a quicker evaporation. Place over medium high heat and bring to a soft boil. Simmer until it reduces by about ¾ leaving you with about about ¼ cup of a thick glaze. You’ll know when it’s done if your spatula leaves a path when scraping it across the bottom of the pan.
