Wontons for dessert? You betcha. These crunchy chocolate filled envelopes are delicate, light as air, and dusted with sweet Chinese five spice.

Last week's post on big wontons wouldn't be complete without its companion, the little wonton post. Little wontons, or xiao hun tun, are made with flour and egg wrappers crumpled casually around a tiny nub of pork.
No, these wontons aren't super-sized. The Chinese make a distinction between "big" wontons, which are made with wrappers filled with meat and vegetables, and "small" wontons, which are filled with only meat and use much thinner wrappers. Compared to other dumplings like Chinese jiaozi or Korean mandu, wontons are easier and more forgiving to make at home.
