Quick & Easy Meatball Bocconcini Appetizers

I created this quick & easy appetizer for a dinner I was hosting and didn't want to do something that had to be heated beforehand.  Since it is a cold app, it's a great summer app, but because of the colours, it makes a great Christmas app as well.

You can either make the meatballs from scratch yourself (recipe in a previous post), or you can buy pre-made, already cooked meatballs (de-frosted first).

These always go fast.
