Crunchy Fried Chocolate Wontons
Wontons for dessert? You betcha. These crunchy chocolate filled envelopes are delicate, light as air, and dusted with sweet Chinese five spice.
- Make sure the wontons are sealed well to prevent chocolate from seeping out during frying.
- Keep unused wontons covered while working to keep them from drying out.
- I found that starting to flip the wontons immediately is easier than waiting for one side to brown, because it helps prevent the wonton from getting top heavy on one side. By doing this it will be easier to keep the wonton flipped over to the second side.
- This dish is also great served with ice cream.
