Instructions and steps:
Step 1Thread 1 cherry tomato onto a toothpick. Fold a basil leaf in half and thread onto same toothpick, followed by 1 bocconcini ball. Repeat with remaining cherry tomatoes, basil and bocconcini to make about 50 skewers.
Step 2To serve, lay large basil leaves in the shape of a wreath on a large serving platter. Arrange skewers on top of basil leaves and drizzle with the basil pesto. Serve skewers immediately.
If you are pressed for time, make the skewers a day ahead. Store them in the fridge in an airtight container, then drizzle with pesto before serving.
