Chocolate - Hazelnut - Banana Fried Ravioli

Banana and Nutella. . . need I say more?!  I've been putting these two all-star ingredients into stuffed pancakes, smores and the occassional croissant for awhile now. . . so I when I saw Giada fry up a batch of these wontons, it was off to the store to purchase wonton wrappers.

5 simple ingredients. . . out of this world taste. . . you'll find it hard to eat just one. . . in fact, I think it just may be impossible!

Recipe adapted from Giada DeLaurentis
My additions in Pink
  • Ripe Banana
  • Nutella
  • Wonton Wrappers
  • Oil for frying
  • Powdered Sugar for dusting

My Suggested Directions:
Peel and cut banana into 1/4" slices diagonally
Arrange Wonton Wrappers on countertop or cutting board. . . 1 banana should yield 14-16 wontons. . .Spread 1/2 tablespoon of Nutella onto 1/2 of the wonton wrapper diagonally ( leave a little room at the edge) and layer 1-3 pieces of banana on top (depending on size).  Repeat until all of the banana is used.

Press edges together to seal wonton making a triangle - dip your finger in water and run it along the edges, making sure it is completely sealed - we don't want to lose any of that goodness when it gets fried.

Heat 3/4 -1" oil in a small frying pan or mini-wok. . . when the oil is at 375 degrees - carefully place 1 or 2 triangle shaped wontons into the oil.  These cook up fast, so don't walk away!  Give them a few turns - the whole process should take 45 seconds - 1 minute.

Drain on paper towel and repeat to your hearts desire!

Dust these with a bit of powdered sugar and serve warmMake a big batch - these little guys go quick!

Happy Cooking and Happy Styling!
