Hello, delicious! My Skinny Mozzarella Bites are too good (and easy) not to try! I promise you’re going to love them, because we can’t get enough of them at my house! They are perfect as a game day snack, afternoon munchies or a party appetizer, and they are ready to go in less than 15 minutes. The best part about these is that you save calories from baking instead of frying. Don’t be surprised if the results have you popping a second batch in the oven!
