Nutella and Banana Wontons
So I found this recipe while stumbling through random pages on the internet, trying to find new recipes. We already had Nutella and bananas so all I had to do was run to the store for some won-ton wrappers. In the original recipe, the pictures dictate a circular slice of banana, but I could not get the won-ton to seal shut with using such a large piece. Anyways, whatever the amount of filling, this dessert is so easy and absolutely delicious!
1 package (12 Oz. Package) wonton wrappers, thawed
2 cups Canola Oil or Peanut Oil
1 jar (13 Oz. Jar) Nutella hazelnut spread
2 whole bananas, sliced thinly (you should be able to get 24 pieces/per banana
1 whole egg, beaten
4 Tablespoons cinnamon sugar (3 tablespoons sugar + 1 tablespoon cinnamon) or powdered sugar
First step, put a dollop of Nutella in the middle of the won-ton. (I put Nutella in a plastic zip lock bag and cut off the corner, for a make shift piping bag) Then nestle your sliced banana on top of the Nutella dollop.
Now take your beaten egg, and brush a thin layer around 2 sides of the won-ton.
Fold the oposite side of the won-ton (that does not have the egg glue on it) over on the "glue" side. Press and seal, make sure there aren't any openings.
Now pre-heat your oil to a medium temperature on your stove top. I used about a 5 heat. Gently place the won-tons in the hot oil and flip after about 5-10 seconds. You only want to let the won-ton get a light golden brown.
Place the finished won-tons on a plate with paper towels lined to absorb the grease. You want to sprinkle either the cinnamon & sugar or powdered sugar over the won-tons as soon as they are removed from the heat, to allow the toppings to stick to the won-ton.
Let them cool just a bit and enjoy!
