Chocolate Chip Wontons - compliments of Wonton Warrior

Wonton Warrior has been a busy person, dictating to us, what kind of wontons to make and what other tricks there are for the use of wontons.  For example, sprinkle with a  little cinnamon and sugar and bake and you have delicate cookies.

When he said the word, chocolate, both Bizzy and I jumped for joy.  Chocolate can't be beat.  I found this recipe on Yummily and it has the most endearing name - Ridiculously Easy 4-Ingredient Chocolate Chip Wontons.  I made half the recipe and  should have made more.

I served these at the family barbecue and the first reaction of people was "Chocolate in a wonton?"  That makes sense since, wontons are more often found in soup than as a dessert.  I made them with Tofutti cream cheese but I recommend that you use real cream cheese.

Here are your four ingredients.

Chocolate Chip Wontons  half a recipe

4 ounces whipped cream cheese
1 1/2  tablespoons sugar
3/4 cup of chocolate chips
15 wonton wrappers

(plus water to seal wontons and powdered sugar to sprinkle on wontons, if  you choose)


Heat oil in pot or deep sided skillet.

Combine cream cheese and sugar and beat until smooth.  (Since I use whipped cream cheese, it is easy to do and I do it by hand.  The Tofutti cream cheese also needed no beaters.)  Stir in chocolate chips. 

Lay out about 6 wontons and put a tablespoon of mixture in the middle of each wrapper.  (For the round wontons, that is too much and it would ooze out.  I used more like a teaspoon.)

Wet edges of wontons with water and seal tightly.   Do a good job here.

Drop wontons into the hot oil (very carefully) and cook for about a minute until both sides are golden.  Drain on paper towels.

Dust with powdered sugar, if desired.  Enjoy!
