Food and sex have been linked since the dawn of civilization. If there are two things that men love more than anything, it's eating and having sex. This can be a problem if you make a large filling meal that makes a mess and leaves you feeling bloated. That is ok a lot of the time, but when you want to get frisky... not so much. Enter finger foods. Easy to eat and they are sensual when shared in a romantic setting with your partner.
Romantic Tip: Make a bunch of finger foods and spend the evening feeding them to each other.
So tonight I made cute Caprese purses to share with my husband. They went perfectly with a nice bottle of wine and some candles.
1/2 lb cherry tomatoes
10 large FRESH basil leaves
1 TBSP extra virgin olive oil, divided
1/2 TBSP fresh minced garlic, divided
1 teaspoon italian seasoning, divided
1/2 teaspoon salt,
1/2 teaspoons black pepper
won ton wrappers
Slice mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Cut up your cherry tomatoes into 4 pieces each. Chop up your basil and mince your garlic. Add tomatoes, basil, olive oil, garlic, italian seasoning, salt, and pepper to a bowl and stir.
Lay out won ton wrapper and place one tablespoon of the caprese mixture in the center of the rectangle.
Top this with 1 teaspoon of sliced mozzarella.
Rub edges of the won ton with butter and squeeze closed.
Repeat until all of the caprese mixture is gone.
Place pastry on a baking sheet or baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven.
