Nutella Dessert Wontons

After making steamed veggie dumplings the other day I was totally feeling on a roll as far as filling wonton wrappers goes.  Sitting around with my roommates, I realized that we could all use some dessert.  I managed to pull these together in under 10 minutes (and even closer to 5). They were a nice small sweet treat to end the day.

Nutella Wontons
  • 12t Nutella 
  • 6 wonton wrappers
  • 1 egg + 1/2 cup water, beaten together (or use leftover from dinner wonton-making)
  • 1/4 c neutral oil for frying
  • 1T cocoa powder (I used the Hershey's Special Dark)
  • 1 T powdered sugar
Place 2t Nutella in the center of each wonton wrapper. Moisten the edges of the wrappers with egg wash. Fold one corner diagollay to meet its opposit corner. Press layers together to seal, being careful to avoid air bubbles. At this point, you can press lightly on the filling to flatten it out a little. Heat frying oil over medium heat until it shimmers. Add wontons and fry until golden brown on both sides, flipping mid way through (< 2 minutes per side). Drain on a paper towel before setting on plates in pairs. Combine cocoa powder and powdered sugar in a fine mesh sieve. Dust lightly over wontons and serve.
