Nutella. My love. Nutella deep fried in a wonton? My infatuation.
I'm sure just that word Nutella conjures emotions and memories that are equally shameful as they are ecstatic. The euphoria of eating a whole jar with a spoon, but keeping it your naughty little secret, is in itself the essence of Nutella. The guilty pleasure.
Well... I just made it worse for you. I deep fried it in a crispy wonton wrapper. I'm running back to the kitchen...
Deep-Fried Nutella Wontons
You will need...
20 round wonton wrappers (or however many you want to make)
1 jar (375g) of Nutella
2 bottles vegetable oil for the deep frying
Fill a small bowl with tap water. Take a wonton, and spoon 1 tsp of Nutella into the centre. Dip your finger in the water then run it around the edges of the wonton (this will help the wonton stick together when you fold it up).
Gather the edges of the wonton wrapper up with your fingers around the Nutella, and pinch the sides together at the top. The Nutella will now be sealed in the wrapper. Set aside. Repeat this process with all remaining wrappers. I know its tempting, but try to resist putting too much Nutella in the centre of the wonton, otherwise it will ooze out of the wonton. Less is more in this case (I never thought I would say that.)
Fill a heavy, medium-sized pot with vegetable oil to about 2 inches high. Heat the oil on medium high heat until it reaches 325-350F/165-175C. You will know the oil is hot enough when you see some smoke coming off and the surface is rippling. Carefully plop the wontons into the hot oil for about 2mins until golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon, and allow to cool on parchment paper. Eat warm!

When I was travelling in China years ago, the women would wear these large brimmed visors to shade them from the heat of the summer. My outfit is inspired by such chic function, and I even found the perfect visor/hat at Reformation in New York. Gladiator sandals and Céline accessories top it off. Perfect for munching on deep-fried wontons in the city... East meets West.
