Bocconcini Cocktail Bites

24 fresh small bocconcini -drained

½ tsp. smoked paprika

½ tsp. dried oregano

½ tsp. dried basil

¼ tsp. black pepper

24 small fresh basil leaves

12 pitted black olives- flattened and cut in half

4 tbsp. olive oil- herb infused if not a good quality olive oil

24 small wooden cocktail spears

In a small bowl combine all spices and set aside. Cut a small edge off the end of each bocconcini so it will sit up on the serving platter. Dip the un-cut edge of the bocconcini in the spices, then spear a piece of your fresh basil, follow with a piece of the black olive. Insert into the middle of your spice dipped bocconcini and plate on your serving platter. Drizzle the olive oil onto each wooden spear so the olive oil flows onto the bocconcini.
