Looking for something interesting to serve at your next cocktail party? Crunchy, juicy, salty-sweet, and single-serving, candied cherry tomatoes taste as good as they look. Not surprisingly, the idea for these Cookfight cuties comes from Serious Eats.

Tips: This recipe uses a bit of candy making know-how to get the sweet balsamic coating just right. For best results, use a candy thermometer. If you don't have a candy thermometer, go by this test: "hard crack" stage, which the recipe asks for, happens when a bit of the syrup drizzled in water hardens to brittle threads.

Tweaks: If you like, use a grey or pink flake salt to add a bit more color and texture to the finished result.
