The fun part about using wonton wrappers is that it shows their versatility. My boys love that we can make our homemade crab rangoons and then use the same wrappers to make these sweet treats.

A little creativity in the kitchen goes a long way with a recipe like this, so have fun, and don’t be scared to mix and match flavors!

I like to eat them just like the recipe card written, but sometimes I will add some powdered sugar on top as well! The options are endless!

What toppings can I add to fried dessert wontons?

When it comes to fried dessert wontons, there are endless possibilities for toppings that can truly make your taste buds dance.

One option is caramel sauce, which adds a sweet and rich flavor to the crispy exterior of the wonton. Another choice is whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, which can add a cool and creamy contrast to the warm and crispy wonton.

Additionally, fresh fruit such as strawberries, blueberries, or mangoes can add a juicy and refreshing balance to the sweetness of the treat.

For a more indulgent treat, try Nutella or peanut butter as toppings, which will melt beautifully onto the crispy wonton and create a rich and satisfying taste.

The choice is yours when selecting the perfect toppings for your fried dessert wontons. So unleash your creativity and enjoy the deliciousness these tempting treats offer!
