Fried Chocolate Marshmallow Wontons

Wonton. It’s a fun word. Frying things is also fun. Eating fried things is fun too. Especially if they have chocolate and marshmallow on the inside. And if they have “wonton” in the name. These wontons = fun. Got it yet?

I would definitely recommend frying up a batch of these if you’ve got your closest friends over or are just bored and lonely on a Saturday night. Know why? (See paragraph 1). Not only are these babies entertaining and easy to make, they are also irresistible and dreamy. If you find yourself eating the whole batch at once, be surprised not. Indulgence is a common result of things that put a smile on your face.

To start the “wawn-tawns”, grab some wonton wrappers and spread them out on a sheet of foil. Drop a teaspoon each of chocolate spread and marshmallow cream in the middle of each wrapper. Warning: this process may cause excessive spoon-licking.

Take a beaten egg, dip a brush in it, and brush the sides of each wonton wrapper. This acts as the glue that keeps your wontons together. These things require commitment! Fold the wonton wrappers over into a triangle and seal the edges.

Heat about 2 inches of canola oil in a large pot to 350 degrees, using a candy thermometer to guide you in this journey. Place 2 or 3 wontons at a time in the oil, cooking them until they are golden brown, about 20-30 seconds on each side. If you’re a fan of roasting marshmallow, then frying wontons is right up your alley!

Remove the wontons to a paper towel-lined plate to drain and cool. Clearly, at this point, the temptation will arise to eat a few while they are still hot. This will happen. It is okay.

But when they have cooled to warm, dust them with powdered sugar and garnish with a mint sprig. We like to be fancy here at All Things Sweet.

Go ahead and indulge in 1 or 2 or 18 of these. The crispiness and the gooey chocolate/marshmallow will have you in its grips for a while. But take a breathe, count to 10, or split them with friends; either way, these wontons are not to be denied. Because they literally can’t be.

Hi! I'm Kelcie and I've got a major passion for dessert! I started this blog to help share my love for crafting sweet, beautiful, and crazy-delicious treats. I find baking to be an outlet for my creative side that just so happens to also satisfy the unstoppable sweet tooth with which I was born (I get that from my dad's side). The recipes I create are designed to be easy, yet produce that impressive "Wow!" and "Yum!" factor. When I'm not baking, you'll probably find me either reading, writing, gardening, or spending way too much time on Pinterest. I hope my recipes will help you find your own inner merriment for all things fun, beautiful, and (of course) sweet!
