Yes, wontons….filled with chocolate, bananas, and nuts! I’d seen this technique a few years ago on The Food Network when Giada made what she called “Hazelnut Ravioli”. She’d fried wonton wrappers filled with Nutella and topped them with sugared mint leaves. I’ve also seen chocolate wontons on one of my favorite blogs, SteamyKitchen.com…She goes right for the kill by simply frying wontons filled with chocolate pieces and dusting them with confectioner’s sugar!
When I decided to make my own version, I went with some of my family’s favorite things…Chocolate, Bananas, and Nuts. After frying several combinations, they were dusted with confectioners sugar, sprinkled with chocolate shavings and nuts, and served with whipped cream!
So, try these for yourself, your family, or anytime you need an impressive dessert that takes all of 10 minutes from start to finish! I’m thinking chocolate & fresh raspberries…

12 wonton wrappers
2 tablespoons milk
12, 1/4-inch banana slices(I used about half of a banana)
12 chocolate pieces(I used about half of a regular sized candy bar)
1/4 cup pecan pieces
1 tablespoon confectioners sugar
whipping cream(I used canned!)
In a small bowl, beat egg and milk together until well blended. Place wonton wrappers on a flat surface, working one at a time, brush with egg wash, fill with 1 banana piece, 1 chocolate piece, and few small nut pieces. Fold over, point to point, pressing edges together to make a triangle. When all are finished, cover with a damp paper towel until oil is ready for frying.
In a large, heavy skillet heat about 1 inch of oil on medium/high heat until ready to fry(350 degrees). In batches(I fried 6 per batch), place filled wontons in a single layer and fry for about 30-40 seconds on each side, until golden brown. Remove from oil and onto a paper towel lined plate to drain. To serve, dust with confectioners sugar and plate with whipped cream, sprinkle with grated chocolate and chopped nuts.
