Grape & Banana chocolate Wantons

This is a very simple dessert/appetizer, that you can prepare when you have guests that pop-in unexpected. It is a quick and easy appetizer to keep them engaged when you prepare that gourmet meal.

This recipe is for 6 people

Grapes 12ea
Banana sliced 2ea
Wonton wrapper 12ea
Chocolate spread 1cup
Egg Beaten 1ea
Vegetable oil for frying
Powdered sugar 20gms
Strawberry halves for garnish

1. Preheat oven to 220*F
2. Coat the edges of the wonton with the egg wash.
3. Place 1grape and banana slice with the chocolate spread in the centre of the wonton and fold into triangles. Seal it tightly but make sure the wonton has no holes.
4. Pour the oil in a medium sized pan and heat to 350*F.
5. Fry the wonton, in the oil (make sure to turn it constantly to get a even color).
6. Once fried transfer onto a paper towel to absorb excess oil.
7. Place in a sheet tray and place in the oven.
8. Finish the rest of the wonton the same way.
9. Once it ready for service, sprinkle the wontons with powdered sugar and garnish with strawberry halves.

When the guest bites into the wontons they get the melted chocolate and also the grapes break up leaving its juices. That is going to be a great treat for your guest (another reason for them to pop-in unexpectedly again).
