Have you ever made something and was so thankful that you only made six? Today was that day.
I LOVE DEEP FRIED WONTONS, like LOVE them. They are my favourite treat on a Chinese food menu. Sadly they are not healthy by any stretch and for that I rarely order them because they are probably a days worth of calories in one order. I mean, not that Chinese food in general is low cal. But of all the dishes I could eat, deep fried wontons are at the bottom of the list.
So why would I make a dessert wonton? Because I am crazy! with a capital C :)
Ok, so these little devils you won’t like, really just move on. I mean what’s so great about chocolate, strawberries and/or caramel wrapped in wonton goodness, deep fried to perfection and then dusted with icing sugar…EVERYTHING!
I always try at least a bite of whatever I make. I’d hate to make something and put it up to find out that it’s crap. So I ate one, then another and then they were gone. Thank God there was only 6. I just couldn’t stop myself. I even ran errands between number two and three and with them cooled down, they were still awesome. I’m not sure they wouldn’t keep over night. I’d suggest that if you make these and do that, let me know. It’s just not safe for me to make them again to find out.
So to make them, buy some wonton or egg roll wrappers. I had the egg roll. They are bigger. Place a cut strawberry and some chocolate chips or a caramel in the centre. Brush the edges with egg wash and then fold over. Pressing over to make the edges seal. Drop the wontons into 350-375 degree vegetable oil and deep fry for 1-2 minutes tops. The wrappers crisp up quite quickly. Remove from oil and onto a paper towel. Dust with icing sugar. Wait a few minutes as the insides will be molten before you eat them. Then devour, I mean eat them!
I’d say try to eat just one and if you can you are a better person than I!
Thanks for looking!
