Mini Caprese Puff Pastry Tarts

I’m a big believer that sometimes the best and tastiest recipes are the simplest.  This recipe is solid proof on that being true.

Mini Caprese Tarts! Mini bites of heaven with basil, balasmic, tomato, and mozzarella. YUM!We were looking for a simple and delicious appetizer to make for our first Valentine’s dinner as a married couple.  In the past we have always gone out, but this year is different.  This year we are finally married, finally own a home together, and are saving  money for a deck! 🙂  I don’t want our dinner at home to be lacking in any way, and these appetizers will add the perfect romantic, tasty, and easy touch to the meal!

Cute foods are the best foods, right?! I think so, especially when it comes to appetizers. I mean if something is already supposed to be small then can’t it be cute right along with small. The holidays are the perfect time for cute appetizers, and I take full advantage of this glorious time of year. I get plenty of eye rolls from my husband. He just wants to eat, ya know. So this year I made something cute out of a food he likes – Halloween Jalapeno Poppers. I still got the eye rolls, but he ate all of them so I win.

As usual, there’s always a way to make these your own. I just can’t make a recipe that can’t be changed up to others personal preferences. I’m sure it’s because I’m could be what’s called a picky eater. I like options. With the Halloween Jalapeno Poppers it’s super easy to change up the eyes to any flavor you’d like. Siracha, ketchup, chocolate chips, candy eyes, olives, more peppers. Whatever you’d like! Whatever your guests like! Make some with each so you have options! Options are wonderful.
