Chocolate Bites

Children love spending time in the kitchen with mom or dad and nothing beats the moment they make a dish their own. My girlfriend’s son bakes these bites often and they go as fast as he can make them!

INGREDIENTS

  • 20 wonton wrappers, rolled into a cigar shape
  • 5 tablespoons chocolate hazelnut spread
  • (I prefer the one and only Nutella)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar

DIRECTIONS

  1. Take a wonton wrapper and place 1/2 teaspoon of chocolate hazelnut spread on top.
  2. Fold the wonton in half, pressing the edges together so they holds together, making a triangle. (You may need to wet your fingers with some water to achieve this.) Continue the process until all the wontons are filled.
  3. In a medium-sized pot, heat oil over high heat. Using a slotted spoon, carefully place wontons into oil and cook until they are golden brown (1-2 minutes). Don’t crowd the pot. With tongs or a slotted spoon, remove from oil and set onto paper towels to absorb excess oil.
  4. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve warm or at room temperature.

TIPS

  • There are a great selection of splatter screens available that you can place on top of pots and pans when cooking to avoid oil splattering or being burned.
  • If you have an old spice jar, clean it out and fill it with confectioner’s sugar. It’s great to have on hand when you bake as well as when you make pancakes or French toast.
