Nutella + Wontons = Wontellas? Nut-tons?

Well, I don't know what you call them, but yesterday was one of those moments when I glimpsed culinary nirvana. Orpheus and I made dessert for Sunday family dinner.

We took wonton wrappers and dolloped a teaspoonful of Nutella in the middle. We used clean paint brushes and a little water to seal them up into triangles. Orpheus was particularly good at brushing on the water, and with a little practice got the hang of making triangles.

After dinner I fried the triangles in an inch or so of oil and Orpheus sprinkled on powdered sugar. Voila! Oooey gooey melty nutty chocolate encased in a crispy wonton crust. MMMmmmmmm.... heaven.

This also works well with a dollop of cream cheese. Seriously. One of the sushi places near us serves this...

That IS a good idea! We tried strawberry preserves, but it was too moist and ran out when we tried to fry them.

I need a reference card for everyone's names. Other than Phineas, I just don't know who's who.
