Crunchy Fried Chocolate Wontons Recipe

30 servings


45 minutes

total time


30 (2 1/2-inch square) wonton wrappers

3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped

Water for brushing wontons

1/4 cup confectioners' sugar

1/4 teaspoon chinese five spice powder

3 quarts canola, vegetable, or peanut oil for frying


Working six at a time, lay out wonton wrappers on a work surface, with one corner pointing toward the top. (Keep unused wontons covered while working to keep them from drying out.) Place 1/2 teaspoon chopped chocolate in the center of the top half of each wonton, keeping chocolate about 1/2-inch from edge.

Lightly brush the top left and top right edges of wontons with water. Lift up bottom point and fold over chocolate to touch top point, forming a triangle. Press edges to seal well, gently pressing out air in the pocket before sealing (see notes).

Place assembled wontons on towel lined plate and cover with lightly dampened paper towel while you finish the remaining wontons. In a small bowl, stir together sugar and five-spice powder; reserve.

Fill a heavy duty pot with 2 inches oil. Heat on medium heat to 360°F (182°C). Working in 2 or 3 batches, carefully lower in wontons one at a time. Fry until golden brown, flipping and agitating with chopsticks, tongs, or a wire mesh spider as they cook, about 45 seconds (see notes). Drain on paper towel-lined plate. Adjust heat as necessary between batches to keep temperature at 360°F.

Sift sugar/spice mixture over wontons and serve, either as-is or with ice cream.
