Ok everyone, it’s going to be quick and dirty today because I’ve got my sights set on a sale at The Gap (priorities, right). Besides, when it’s for something like nutella filled wonton, it should be quick and dirty.
These are the easiest little things ever. You’re going to see how to make them and be like “that’s not even a recipe”. No, it really isn’t, but it doesn’t matter. Anyone that you feed these too will be your friend for life, and they’d probably make great blackmail bites, if you were willing to share them. Just imagine a plate of these out at a party. Seriously. Imagine it.
I’m not going to lie to you either. I made eight of them last night, with the intention that we could each have two after dinner. I then proceeded to eat all eight while cooking dinner, because the kids were upstairs watching a movie and didn’t know any better.
Sorry, not sorry.
- 8 wonton wrappers
- 8 tsp nutella
- icing sugar to dust
- 1½ tbsp cornstarch
- 3 tbsp water
- oil for frying (vegetable, or what ever kind you use)
- Heat 2" of vegetable oil in a pot to 350ºF - 375ºF (or what ever kind you usually use to fry).
- Mix together the cornstarch and water in a small bowl.
- Lay out your wonton wrappers, and place a small teaspoon of nutella in the center (this is really a to taste thing, more or less depending on how much you want in each wonton).
- Brush the edge of the wonton with the cornstarch mixture (you can use your finger, or a pastry brush), then fold up all the edges around the center and pinch together tightly. You're making a little "bag" that holds the nutella.
- Fry until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes, turning to ensure even browning if needed.
- Let cool for a minute on a wire rack set over a baking sheet, and dust with icing sugar. Best served warm, but still great cooled.
