Nutella Wontons

These were really good and easy to make. I first saw this recipe here

When I made these, I only made six, so I didn't need to put them in the oven. I just fried them all up in a pan, placed them on a plate covered with a paper towel, sprinkled a bit of powdered sugar on them, and that was it! It took about 10 minutes total to make.

16 wonton wrappers

1 egg, beaten to blend

1 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread (recommended: Nutella)

Vegetable oil, for frying

Powdered sugar, for dusting

-Line a baking sheet with plastic wrap.
-Place 1 wonton wrapper on the work surface.
-Brush the edges of the wrapper lightly with egg.
-Spoon 1 tablespoon of chocolate-hazelnut spread into the center of the wrapper.
-Fold the wrapper diagonally in half over the filling and press the edges of the wrapper to seal.
-Place the ravioli on the prepared baking sheet.
-Repeat with the remaining wonton wrappers, egg, and chocolate-hazelnut spread.
-Preheat the oven to 200° F.
-Add enough oil to a heavy large frying pan to reach a depth of 2 inches.
-Heat the oil over medium heat to 350° F.
-Working in batches, carefully add the ravioli to the hot oil and cook until they are golden brown, about 45 seconds per side.
-Using a slotted spoon, transfer the ravioli to a plate lined with paper towels to drain.
-Then, transfer the cooked ravioli to another baking sheet and keep them warm in the oven while frying the remaining ravioli. (The fried ravioli can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cool them completely, then cover and refrigerate. Before serving, place them on a baking sheet and rewarm in a preheated 375 degrees F oven just until they are heated through, about 7 minutes.)
-Dust the ravioli with powdered sugar.
