This fun dessert uses a few ready-made ingredients for a quick and delicious results: a crunchy wonton shell that gives way to a molten chocolate-hazelnut filling. Look for wonton wrappers in the produce section of the supermarket.
In a small bowl, combine the heavy cream with the orange juice concentrate, Grand Marnier, and vanilla. Refrigerate the sauce until ready to serve.
Heat the oil to 365°F in a heavy 3-qt. saucepan over medium heat. Set a baking sheet lined with a thick layer of paper towels next to the pot. Slip 6 to 8 wontons into the oil and fry, turning occasionally, until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Scoop them out with a slotted spoon and drain on the paper towels while you fry the rest.
Arrange 4 wontons on individual serving plates and sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar. Serve with small individual dishes (I like tea bowls or sake cups) filled with the orange sauce for dipping.
Make Ahead Tips
If not frying immediately, you can stuff the wontons and refrigerate them for up to 2 days. Just cover tightly with plastic wrap to prevent them from drying out. The sauce can also be made ahead and refrigerated for one day
This recipe has an amazing ROI - return on investment. Very very easy, and intensely satisfying. We did a bunch of these with friends and family. A definite keeper.
Yum. I have made these several times for guests and they always love them. They are simple to make. The sauce is so versatile too. I serve it alongside with strawberries and other fruits as well.
