Chocolate Hazelnut-Banana Stuffed Wontons

By Live.Love.Eat

This is just about one of the yummiest desserts I?ve ever made!!!!

I was inspired to create this by a recipe I saw from Bobby Flay where he spreads Nutella on bread & adds banana, then grills it like a grilled cheese before dusting it with powdered sugar. You can see it here. Interesting thought but I had extra wontons I wanted to use instead.

It was after making this & looking around for Nutella recipes that I saw I was not the only one with such a great idea. While disappointed it?s not a total original I was still pleased to be in good company with Giada. However, she does not add bananas or ice cream.

Either way, you will be missing out terribly if you don?t try this!! Don?t even be nervous that you need to fry these because it?s not a deep fry at all. There?s only enough oil to cover the bottom of a pan. I even took extra time for more pictures so you could see exactly how easy this is. It takes just minutes & is truly restaurant quality, especially served with ice cream & a sprig of mint.


{Printable Recipe}
Wonton skins
Nutella chocolate hazelnut spread
1 banana
Small bowl of water
Vegetable Oil
Confectioner?s Sugar
Ice cream (optional)
Sprigs of Mint (optional)

Cut banana into round slices. Then cut those rounds in half. Set aside.

Lay your wonton skin down flat. Using your fingers, moisten all sides with water. Place about 1 teaspoon of Nutella in the middle of wonton. Do not overstuff. Place 1-2 pieces of banana on top, depending on the size of your banana.

Then fold over wonton skin, diagonally. Press with your fingers to seal. You can then lay it on its side & gently press on it so the filling spreads just a tiny bit inside. You don't have to but it made me happy. Repeat with remaining. See how it's not totally perfect. That's ok, the wontons are very forgiving & look cool if they are not flat. The only requirement is that they are sealed well.

Pour just enough vegetable oil to cover the bottom of a pan. Heat on medium high. Spritz a tiny bit of water into the oil. If it crackles then it?s hot enough.

Place wontons in oil & fry on each side for about 1 ½ minutes or until golden brown.

Set aside on a paper towel to let oil drain off.

For dessert shown in picture, I used a mini container of ice cream & placed it upside down in the middle of bowl or serving dish. I let it sit for 2 minutes to soften so it can come out nicely. Place wontons around, then sprinkle with powdered sugar. Garnish with fresh mint.

{Food for Thought}

The only reason I do not suggest mashing your bananas into the Nutella to combine is because the 1st time I did that it made the filling too thin where it seeped out of the wonton. As an alternative, you could chop up the banana & fold it gently into the Nutella. For me, it was just as easy placing 1 or 2 tiny pieces on top of the Nutella before folding up the wonton.

These were delicious & if I could wrap 'em up & send them to you I would!
