Weekend Cooking...Nutella Ravioli..Redux

You may remember, a long time ago, I posted a recipe for Nutella Ravioli.
At the time the Niece had made them for a dinner, having found the recipe in a cookbook from the very talented Giada De Laurentiis.
They seem so simple, with just a couple of ingredients. And they take just a couple of minutes to make.
Can they really be any good?
Oh yes, my dear readers, they certainly can!

If you like chocolate and most certainly if you are a fan of the hazelnut chocolate spread that is Nutella, these are really something you have to try.

And then I saw a picture somewhere online of a slight variation made for Valentine Day.
Use a heart cutter ..a little powered sugar...maybe a little decoration and you have a perfect dessert for the heart filled day. Or just a delicious, easy little dessert or treat for any day. Different shapes or just make the original, folding the wonton skin in half and making triangle ones. Either way, a winner!

All you will need is a pack of wonton skins, available at most supermarkets, a jar of nutella, in the peanut butter aisle most likely, a beaten egg to seal the edges and some vegetable oil for frying.

Cut the skins to the desired shapes, here some cute hearts. Apply some Nutella, leaving a nice bit of edge to seal. Use you finger to apply some of the egg to the wonton edge, put on the top wonton and seal the edge well. I used a fork.
Fry in the oil, preheated to about 350 degrees.
Stand right there because they will be ready to flip in just a second.
Fry until brown on the other side, remove with a slotted spoon and pat dry on a paper towel.
Now, if you make a bunch, they say that they can be held in a 200 degree oven to keep warm.
I don't know about that.
Mine have never lasted that long.

This is my contribution this to this week's Weekend Cooking.

  1. What a fun idea! Once I am allowed to eat sugar again, I'll definitely try these :)

  2. Those wonton wrappers are so versatile. We fried up a batch once and shook them up in a bag of sugar and cinnamon. Yummmmy! No, they didn't last long at all. Cute idea using the heart shaped cutter.

  3. What a great idea for Valentine's Day! I will definitely have to try this recipe!

  4. Nutella? I'm on my way over. No, wait, I'm not -- I'm making them myself and eating them all before I have to share. Love the heart idea!

  5. I admit their pretty, but you can keep the Nutella!

  6. It seems like every day on pinterest, someone is adding a new recipe using nutella. It's getting very popular!
