Ingredients

  • 16 wonton wrappers
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 c chocolate-hazelnut spread (recommended: Nutella)
  • Vegetable oil
  • 16 fresh mint leaves
  • Nonstick vegetable oil spray
  • Granulated sugar, for dredging
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting

Directions

  • Lay out a wonton wrapper on plastic wrap. Brush the edges of the wrapper lightly with egg for binding.
  • 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 tightly.
  • Repeat with the remaining wonton wrappers, egg, and chocolate-hazelnut spread.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Notes

This is another fabulous Giada recipe! I'm not a chocoholic, but these make my mouth water just thinking about it. These are fun to make for parties - people don't know what's about to hit them! Eat very soon after frying, they tend to get tough if left out too long. It sounds complicated, but it's not.
