- 16 wonton wrappers
- 1 egg, beaten to blend
- 1 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread (recommended: Nutella)
- Vegetable oil, for frying
- 16 fresh mint leaves
- Nonstick vegetable oil spray
- Granulated sugar, for dredging
- 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 degrees 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 degrees 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.)
Spray the top side of the mint leaves very lightly with nonstick spray. Working with 1 leaf at a time, dredge the coated side of the leaves in sugar to coat lightly.
Arrange 2 fried ravioli on each plate. Dust the ravioli with powdered sugar. Garnish with the sugared mint leaves and serve.
I wish I had some pictures to show you but we ate them up so fast, I had no time to get the camera :) We didn't get fancy and do the mint leaves, but it was just as good!

I found this fun little quiz that tests your emotional maturity.
This is my result....
You Are 60% Grown Up, 40% Kid
You've grown up a good bit, but you still have a way to go before you're emotionally mature.
You have the skills to control your emotions, you just have to use them.
Whenever you feel yourself acting out, just stop. It's really that simple.
Acting like an adult is all about doing the best you can.
Hey! Not too bad for someone in her twenties right? Now, you have to answer the questions honestly, not what you hope you might be!
