We tend to think of wontons as a savory wrap but it works as well with sweet fillings. Since, I made chocolate wontons, I knew this was my secret weapon for interesting desserts. Chop up some apples. Add a little sugar and use that as a filling. Try a little marshmallow cream with a few chocolate chips. Use your imagination and bring variety to the dessert table.
