Chocolate and banana wontons

Happy Monday everyone. Hope you had a fun and relaxing weekend.

Starting the week with a dessert seems is just what I need here in the cold, dark and very gloomy Pacific North West. I am sure my fellow Washingtonians agree. So, what do you get when you take wonton wrappers, chocolate and bananas. Find out below. Having never tried sweet wontons, I thought would be a good idea . Turns out it was a good one, sweet success !

My recipe is inspired from food network, but I did take some detours from their recommended steps.

You need :
2 milk chocolate candy bars(I recommend grating them )
16 wonton skins
2 bananas, sliced
1 pint vanilla ice cream(optional)
1/2 cup cinnamon sugar cinnamon sugar (mix 1/2 cup sugar and 1tbsp cinnamon powder and keep in a dry jar)
4 cups vegetable oil to deep fry the wontons

This is how you make it :

Start with leaving the milk chocolate in a warm place to make it slightly pliable. Then grate the chocolate bars and keep aside. Lay the wonton skins out on a surface and 1 at a time; paint the edges with water. In the center of the wonton skin, place a tsp of chocolate mixture and top with a banana slice. Fold the wonton skin like a wrapper and press together well to seal completely. Cover with plastic wrap and keep aside.

Heat the oil and fry the wontons (one at a time) till they are golden brown.Meanwhile, place the cinnamon sugar in a bowl. Take the fried wonton out of the soil and dredge in cinnamon sugar to coat the wonton. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream( optional). I tired both versions and both were good.

ooey-gooey and scrumptious..enjoy:)
