Crunchy Fried Chocolate Wontons Recipe!


  • 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


  1. Working six at a time, lay out wonton wrappers on work surface, with one corner pointing toward the top. Place 1/2 teaspoon chopped chocolate in the center of the top half of each wonton, keeping chocolate about 1/2 inch from edge.

  2. 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.

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

  4. Fill heavy duty pot with 2 inches oil. Heat on medium heat to 360°F. 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. Drain on paper towel lined plate. Adjust heat as necessary between batches to keep temperature at 360°F.
