Fried Chocolate Hazelnut Ravioli For Fiesta Friday #43

Fried Chocolate Hazelnut Ravioli

Fried Chocolate Hazelnut Ravioli

If you need a quick dessert, really delicious, looks impressive and will get a lot of ooohs and ahhhhhs make these fried ravioli. You use wonton wrappers, nutella, deep fry, dust with some powdered sugar and there you have it. They taste amazing, really you have to try these. I used to watch Food TV and saw Giada De Laurentis make them, I am a big fan of nutella and fried dough so I felt that these had my name written all over them. Serve on their own with some coffee/espresso or with a bowl of gelato. It makes such a nice, easy and delicious dessert. Serving size is 2 according to the recipe but I can easily eat 4 of them.

I thought these delicious little bites would be really perfect finger food for Fiesta Friday #43 which is hosted by the super talented and very sweet Angie@The Novice Gardener and this weeks co hosts never left the party, I am so excited thatTracy @Scratch It and Stephanie @The Cozy Cook are still there to welcome everyone.

Fried Chocolate Hazelnut Ravioli

From Giada De Laurentis

Serves 8 (or if I am there 4)
16 wonton wrappers
1 egg, beaten to blend
1 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread (recommended: nutella)
Vegetable oil, for frying
Powdered sugar, for dusting

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the wonton wrappers on the surface. Brush the edges of the wrapper lightly with egg. Spook 1 tbs of chocolate hazelnut spread into the center of the wrapper. Fold the wrapper diagonally in half over the filling and press the edges of the wrapper to seal. P,ace the ravioli on the prepared baking sheet.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Add enough oil to a heavy large frying pan to reach a depth of 2 inches. Heat the oil over medium high heat to 350 degrees.

Working in batches. carefully add the ravioli to the hot oil and cook until they are golden brown, about 45 seconds per side. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the ravioli to a plate lined with paper towels to drain. Then, transfer the cooked ravioli to another baking sheet and keep them warm in the oven while you are frying the remaining ravioli. ( The fried ravioli can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cool them completely, then cover and refrigerate. Before serving, place them on a baking sheet and rewarm in a preheated 375 degree oven just until they are heated through, about 7 minutes.)

    November 21, 2014
    • Oh yes, I am going to make with a sweet ricotta citrusy filling also, kind of reminiscent of a cannoli. I think you could do anything, savory or sweet. Love those little wonton wrappers. Thanks Sue.

      November 21, 2014
  20. A perfect cold-weather dessert (or anytime)

    November 21, 2014

    November 21, 2014
    • I love the idea of adding a slice of banana, I think it would be amazing. Thank you.

      November 21, 2014

  23. Stephanie @ The Cozy Cook #

    Niiiiiccely done! I tried making ravioli with wonton wrappers once, (fail!)- I’ll have to try it again and take my lead from you, I like the chocolate hazelnut flavor too!! At least one of us knows how to cook! πŸ˜‰

    November 21, 2014
    • I beg to differ, one look at the recipes on your site and my friend you can cook. Thank you so much Stephanie.

      November 21, 2014

  25. MMM I am drooling, so delicious, I love these! πŸ™‚

    November 21, 2014
    • Thanks so much Michael, Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

      November 21, 2014
  26. Really lovely idea! I’ve never thought of frying dough before. Grief, that must make me sound kind of slow. Then again, I tend to be. Hah! Oh, do hope you’re surviving the cold snap you’re having, and staying warm.

    November 21, 2014
    • Johnny these are so easy to make and so delicious. You really should fry some dough!! It’s really cold right now but will warm up, Monday almost 70 degrees they say.

      November 21, 2014
  27. What a yummy-sounding, great-looking dessert! πŸ™‚

    November 21, 2014
  28. This ravioli looks fantastic, it is the ultimate dessert combo πŸ˜€

    Cheers
    Choc Chip Uru

    November 22, 2014
    • Yes all of us nutella lovers will really enjoy this dessert. It’s almost as quick as that cake you microwave in a mug. Thanks Uru.

      November 22, 2014
  29. I have all of Giada’s cookbooks, 3 or 4, and her recipes are always good. I like to watch her on Food Network I believe. Sounds delicious and easy πŸ™‚

    November 22, 2014
    • I also like Giada and used to watch her all the time. She has some wonderful recipes. Thanks so much.

      November 22, 2014
  30. I wish I can have one of those nice snack now, I am feeling hungry when I look at it.
    Can you share one with me? πŸ™‚

    November 22, 2014
    • I would gladly share with you, they are delicious. Wish I lived close to bring some to you.

      November 22, 2014
  31. These sound so good – and as a bonus they’re really pretty and special-looking. I buy an organic praline spread that would work just perfectly. I’ll try them over the holidays!

    November 22, 2014
    • That would be perfect, I have also made them with a gently sweetened ricotta and orange or lemon zest, it’s wonderful also, kind of like a cannoli filling. They make a very easy but elegant dessert. Thank you.

      November 22, 2014
  32. Given the chance, my daughter would sit with a jar of nutella and a spoon and eat the lot… she’s going to love these ravioli!

    November 22, 2014
    • That would be me too, I love nutella and gladly have a spoon in the jar any opportunity I have. Thanks so much, these little treats are wonderful, the won ton is crunchy and the nutella oozes out all warm. Really yummy! Thank you so much.

      November 22, 2014
  33. Oh my gosh Suzanne! I love the idea of using the won ton wrappers. Chocolate and fried dough? A match made in culinary heaven!

    November 22, 2014
  34. Totally LOVE this idea Suzanne! I can’t wait to try it – just need to go out and buy some wonton wrappers and we’re set! πŸ™‚ Salivating just thinking about these little treats!

    so yummy. Reminding me of the story of a dessert I ordered at a fancy-pants restaurant. It was only $5 or so and promised “nutella” and some sort of cracker. And it was three itty bitty crackers, each with a spot of nutella. Got a big eye roll from me and now I am looking at your dessert, which is a thousand times better and thinking how easy it is to make, too. Love what you’ve done here πŸ™‚

    November 22, 2014
    • LOL, cracker with nutella and they called that dessert, now thats funny. I would have rolled my eyes too! Thanks Liz. these little bites are so good you will love them. Thank you.
