INGREDIENTS IN NUTELLA WONTONS
Wonton wrappers: You will need 16 wonton wrappers for this tasty treat. You can find wonton wrappers in the refrigerated section of the grocery store, usually near the produce. They are thin and square and super easy to use.
Nutella: You will need about 1 cup of Nutella to make these, you will be using about 1 tablespoon to fill each wrapper.
Egg: Beat 1 egg and use a pastry brush to brush it all over the edges of the wonton wrappers to get them to stick together when you fold them over the Nutella.
Oil: You will need about 2-3 cups of oil to fry the wontons. I usually use vegetable or canola oil, but you can use coconut oil or shortening if you prefer.
Powdered sugar for topping; A little bit of powdered sugar sprinkled on top is not only delicious, but it is pretty too!
How to make Nutella Wontons
Begin by filling a medium saucepan with oil and heat over medium heat for about 5 minutes before frying the wontons.
Next, lay parchment paper on a large baking sheet and lay out each of the wonton wrappers.
Then, beat the egg in a small bowl and brush all of the edges of each wonton wrapper.
Proceed to scoop 1 tablespoon of Nutella into the middle of each wrapper and then fold over to form a triangle. Gently press the edges together, being careful not to smash the Nutella down (you do not want it to ooze out of the sides or they won’t seal).
Continue to place each wonton in the heated oil, cooking on each side for about 20 seconds or until light golden brown. Them remove each wonton with tongs and place on paper towel to absorb the excess oil.
Sprinkle the wontons with a light coating of powdered sugar, serve and enjoy!

What is Nutella?
If you have never heard of Nutella, you are missing out. Made with hazelnuts and cocoa, this creamy spread tastes like chocolate, but better. You can find it at pretty much any grocery store near the peanut butter, or you can buy it in larger tubs at Costco. And what do you eat with Nutella? It is pretty much good with anything. We love to spread it on toast or crepes, or you can just dip strawberries and bananas in it.
Alternate options for Nutella?
Nutella is absolutely amazing in these wontons, but if you don’t have any or don’t love the taste, you can easily swap in something else. Peanut butter, hot fudge, or any type of jam work great. You can even try a combination of any of those ingredients. I love adding a little bit of strawberry jam in with the Nutella. Or you can even add a slice of banana to the Nutella, Nutella and bananas together is the best!
What kind of oil is best for frying?
I usually use vegetable or canola oil when making donuts or other fried pastries. It works well because it has a higher smoke point than some other oils. Another good option is shortening. You can use coconut oil, but just be careful not to let the temperature get too high because it will start to smoke if it gets above 350°.
What is the perfect frying temperature for oil?
The best temperature for frying food in oil is between 350° and 365°F. If you are using coconut oil, you will want to make sure to stay closer to 350° so that the oil doesn’t start to burn or smoke.
The easiest way to make sure your oil is at the correct temperature is to use a meat thermometer. My all-time favorite meat thermometer is the Thermapen. It is super fast and incredibly durable. Another great meat thermometer is the ThermoPop which is a more basic version that works just as well!
