Mozzarella Stick Caprese Bites Recipe

I think my husband is the biggest fan of mozzarella sticks on the planet. They are right up at the top of the list of his favorite things to eat and he is always game to eat them. So, when he saw me return from Walmart with a box of Farm Rich Mozzarella Sticks this weekend I am pretty sure I heard him let out an actual “Woo hoo!”

I love mozzarella sticks too and I also love how Farm Rich has so many choices of tasty snacks that we can keep in the freezer and pull out to make a tasty snack or a party appetizer in just a few minutes. While they are delicious prepared just “as is”, it’s also fun to put our own unique spin on serving them by creating all new recipes.
