Arrange the wonton wrappers on the sheet and spray them with cooking spray. Sprinkle them evenly with the granulated sugar, then bake until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
Remove from the oven and arrange four of the wontons on a serving platter or individual dessert dishes. Top each one with 2 Tbs. of the whipped cream and then 1/8 of the mandarin sections. Top each with a second wonton wrapper. Repeat the layers (whipped topping, mandarin oranges, wonton wrapper). Sift the confectioners’ sugar over the top layer and serve.
Make Ahead Tips
The sugared wonton wrappers can be prepared up to 1 week in advance. Store them in airtight containers or plastic bags at room temperature. Assemble the dessert no more than 1 hour before serving. When assembling ahead, refrigerate until ready to serve.
