I got this Recipe from Steamy Kitchen, but she used chocolate. I was going to use chocolate. But had to do it different. So someone suggested using Nutella…So I went with that. I have never had, or tried Nutella until I made this recipe…It’s damn good stuff, and these are damn good wontons. The crunchy from the wonton the chocolatey, hazelnut flavor from the Nutella and then top it off with powdered sugar = Heaven!
1 tablespoon water
12 wonton wrappers, defrosted (keep wrappers covered with damp towel)
1/2 Tablespoon of Nutella
Confectioners’ sugar, for sprinkling
In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and water to make an egg wash. On a clean, dry surface, lay one wrapper down with a point toward you, like a diamond. Place 1/2 tablespoon of Nutella near the top end of the wrapper. Brush a very thin layer of the egg wash on the edges of the wrapper. Fold the bottom corner of the wrapper up to create a triangle and gently press to remove all air from the middle. Press the edges to adhere the sides. Make sure the wrapper is sealed completely. Repeat with the remaining wrappers. Keep the folded Nutella wontons covered under plastic wrap or a damp paper towel to prevent them from drying.
In a wok or medium pot, pour in two inches of oil. Heat the oil to 350°F (180°C) and gently slide a few of the Nutella wontons into the hot oil. Make sure you don’t crowd the wontons too much. Fry 1 1/2 minutes, then flip and fry another minute until both sides are golden brown and crisp.
