Chocolate Cinnamon Wontons

    This could easily be the most gratifying thing I’ve ever made – simple to put together, even quicker to prep and bake and moreover, so fun to eat! It’s the perfect dessert option after a heavy meal and you want something to nibble on. It’s also a good gift-from-the-kitchen idea – if anyone knows where we could get small Chinese take out boxes, you could toss in some pretty paper, add these wontons over it and seal the box with a kiss.
    The process isn’t much – you just have to watch over them to make sure they don’t burn. If I were you, I wouldn’t skip the cinnamon sugar dust – the aroma is just sublime. It needs really fine chocolate squares – the expensive kind. I used Lindt Roasted Almond but you could easily use Lindt thins or even squares of liquor chocolates. See? Fun in a wonton.
    Chocolate Cinnamon Wontons
    Yields: 10 Wontons (could be as big or small as your chocolate bar)
    10 square wonton wrappers
    4 – 6 tbs of melted butter
    10 squares of the finest chocolate
    1 tsp cinnamon
    2 tsp caster sugar
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 1750C. Grease and line a cookie tray with silpat or non-stick parchment paper.
  2. Mix cinnamon and sugar together in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Place wonton sheets on the tray and grease the sides with melted butter. Add a square of chocolate to the side and wrap half the wonton sheet over the chocolate. Press gently with your fingers to seal the sides. Dust with cinnamon sugar and bake for 10 – 12 minutes or till wontons are golden brown and crisp.
  4. Making an appearance again here are my favorite coffee companions – World Peace cookies with sea salt. See recipe here.
