  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Egg: mixed with 1 TBSP water for egg wash

How:

  • Place wonton wrappers on workspace (determine amount by how many you want to serve)
  • Spoon 1tsp Nutella on a wonton wrapper
  • Brush egg wash along each edge
  • Fold in half to create a triangle and press edges together so they stick
  • Repeat steps until complete

Fry Up:

  • Fill large pot with equal amounts of Cooking Oil & Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Bring oils to 375 degrees
  • Gently place Ravioli into oil – work in small numbers 4-5 at a time
  • Ravioli will float – use tongs to flip
  • Allow to turn golden brown – 4-5 secs each side
  • Use strainer or slotted spoon to remove from oil
  • Place on paper towels to soak oil
  • Repeat with remaining ravioli

Whipped Cream:

  • Pour 1/2 cup Heavy Whipping Cream in mixing bowl
  • Begin mixing with electric mixer & whisk attachment on medium speed
  •  Once it begins to fluff -Whisk on HIGH
  • Begin adding 1TBSP powdered sugar at a time
  • Repeat until all 3 TBSP powdered sugar have been added
  • Pour 1tsp Vanilla extract (optional)
  • Continue whisking on HIGH
  • Cream will form peak & it is ready

Plate Up:

  • Place Ravioli on desired serving platter
  • Dust with powdered sugar
  • Place Whip Cream along side, on center…select what looks pretty

Nutella is one of my favorite creamy spreads that can be used in so many varieties. Absolutely delicious…the crunch of the wonton with the warm chocolate & hazelnut dipped into the creamy homemade whip cream…Fabulous!
