If you are reading this...guess what?  I'm on vacation!  Yes, I'm soaking in the rays on a tropical island far, far away from any work, kids or stress.  I would have loved to bring you along, but alas my luggage has a weight ban and my swimsuits, loungwear, books and tolietries are MUCH more important that....well, you.

Sorry.

But, I didn't want to leave you empty handed.  I most certainly don't want you to be thinking about me getting pampered or being served on hand and foot 24/7.  Not at all.  I will not have cocktails in my hand, chilled and ready for sipping.  I will not go to dinner and order multiple entries just because I can.  And I will NOT order room service.

I'm lying.

I will be doing all of that.

In between packing and list making {hello, both of our parents need to know how to keep these children alive while we're gone}, I made these Fried Nutella Wontons.

For no reason at all really.  Just because it was a random Monday afternoon and the babe of the family was napping and I was a bit bored.  

I had leftover egg roll wrappers in the fridge that I wanted to use up and a half eaten jar of Nutella in the cupboard.  A dear old friend of mine {hey, Erica!} made something similar to these years ago while I was at her house.  I remember all of us devouring them hot out of the oil dusted with powdered sugar {really, the only way to eat them} and then I promptly forgot about them until some 10 years later.

Biggest mistake of my life.

It really was a shame the older two kids were at school when I made them, as I had them all to myself.  Hot, crispy, oozing with melted chocolate.

I saved the rest for the kids who had them for an afterschool snack {unhealthy, I know haters}, but they heated up nicely in the microwave and they were none the wiser.  The house may have smelled a bit like a fried donut factory, but I chalk that up to another lesson in cooking for them.

Fried donut smells trump everything else in life.

Gather up these 3 simple ingredients {wontons, Nutella and powdered sugar} and watch this special treat disappear before your eyes!

1 pkg. wonton wrappers
1 jar Nutella
powdered sugar
oil for frying {I used canola oil}

1.  In a deep skillet or dutch oven pour in enough oil to cover the bottom and come up the sides 1inch and bring to a medium-high heat.  You will know the oil is hot and ready when it starts to "ripple".
2.  Cut the wonton wrappers in half on an angle making triangles.  Place a teaspoon of Nutella in the center.  Using wet fingers {a small bowl of water near by helps}, fold over the wonton and seal the edges.
3.  Place in the hot oil cooking about 30 seconds on each side.  These will cook up very fast, you know they are ready to flip when they've turned golden brown.  Immediately remove from the oil, place on a paper-towel lined plate and dust with powdered sugar.
4.  Eat them fresh and hot!

***Please note you can make as little or as much of these wontons as you like, just fry up as many as you know you will eat at the time.  Leftover wonton wrappers will keep fresh in the fridge for up to 1 month, just seal them tightly in a plastic bag.
