Prosciutto Wrapped Mozzarella

This is a very simple appetizer or finger food. It consists of only 3 ingredients and requires zero cooking. The only tricky part is finding the ingredients!

These came about while thinking about parties and entertaining. These would be great as a minimalist's appetizer. They would also look lovely spread on a tray, where they could be passed around or set at a table, while people graze around it. They do not really need anything to hold them together, but you may add a toothpick to each one, should you serve them at a party. This helps keep distance between food and ... fingers.

Note: I've used Ciliegine (cherry sized) balls of mozzarella, but you could use larger ones (bocconcini) . if you can't find the proper size of fresh mozzarella, you can always buy a nice sized log or ball and cut cubes. That would look just as nice!
