Fried Chocolate Hazelnut Ravioli For Fiesta Friday #43
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.)
