Balsamic Fruit Fool

Happy April Fool!

Like many of the things I post, this is a simple recipe. I'm all for things that can be done in a few minutes and still look and taste great.

This could be dressed up any number of ways, but I went with the easiest.

Balsamic Fruit Fool

Shortcake shells
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt per shell
mixed berries in balsamic
glazed walnuts

Set each shell in a small bowl. Layer in 1/2 cup yogurt and about 2 tbsp of the fruit on each. I put about the same amount of nuts as well. Serve!

Berries in Balsamic

3 cups mixed berries
     strawberries, blackberries and blueberries
1/4 cup Chocolate Raspberry Balsamic

Chop the strawberries into small bits. Toss fruit and balsamic together in a large bowl and let sit for about half an hour.

Serve on anything.

Glazed Sesame Walnuts

1 cup walnuts
1/4 cup Cherry Balsamic
2 tbsp white sugar
1 tsp Sesame Oil
2 tbsp Sesame Seeds, garnish

Heat a pan to medium heat and add the nuts and Sesame Oil. Toast, stirring occasionally about 2 minutes. Nuts should be fragrant but not burnt.

Add in the Balsamic and sugar and stir quickly to coat. Cook about 30 seconds.

Turn out onto a platter and spread in a single layer to cool. Sprinkle with sesame seeds immediately.

Stores up to a week in the refrigerator.
