I made these individual desserts for a bloggers’ tapas challenge. My Balsamic Raspberries with Mascarpone Cream may not be customary, but I’m certain you’ll agree that they are delectable.

The definition of tapas varies…but the term originated in Spain. Tapas are traditionally savory but the term tapas has morphed to encompass any snacks, canapés or finger foods and placing this concoction of sweet ingredients in a spoon does loosely make for “finger food.” No matter what you call these sweet bites, they’d be a fantastic addition to any cocktail party or even a Super Bowl gathering.
