Good voice in my head: You’re really doing well in the healthy eating / gym depot today!
Bad voice in my head: You deserve a treat!
Good voice in my head: A girl’s night with your nieces!
Bad voice in my head: Something fried!
Good voice in my head: New coral skinny pants!
Bad voice in my head: A jar of Nutella!
The actual outcome of this True Life: I Am Addicted To Nutella moment was an evening that included all of the above. Let me explain.
Being a teacher, this week is our Spring break. While I’d love to be in Cancun at a tiki bar with a margarita and a suntan, it wasn’t in the cards this year. Instead of indulging in alcohol and a too small string-kini, I indulged in chocolate. My three pipsqueaks crashed casa FSL for a night of pizza, fro-yo, ipads and Nutella stuffed fried ravioli. Duck faces = happy tweens.
Giada DiLaurentis put me onto these and I’ve only made them on one other occasion. Six years ago on Valentine’s Day Mr. FSL (before he was Mr. FSL) made me dinner (baked chicken and garlic spinach), and I made dessert. I stuffed about 7 into my mouth before bringing them to my waiting boyfriend. From that point on I told myself I’m only allowed to make these again on extremely special occasions or else I’d have to check myself into the Betty Crocker Clinic.
They sound like they taste odd. They look complicated. They’re dangerously easy to make. They are the most delicious, chocolatey, melty amazingness eh-verrr.
Grab some wonton wrappers and a bowl of water. Dunk your finger into the water and trace around the wrapper.
Plop some Nutella in the center. The bigger the plop, the better 😉
In order to prevent myself from eating like 75, I wore my new coral skinny pants as a reminder. They won’t fit anymore if I eat as many as I want to. They certainly won’t be skinny pants.
Heat up some oil & fry these babies until golden brown on both sides. They’ll cook pretty quickly (like 10 seconds on each side).
Dust with powdered sugar and faceplant.
vegetable or canola oil
Dip your finger into a bowl of water
Trace the outer edge of the wonton
Place a dollop of Nutella in the center
Fold the wonton in half
Press the edges so it is sealed
Pour about oil into a frying pan until it’s about 1/2″ high
Over medium heat, fry the ravioli until golden brown on each side
Place on a plate lined with paper towels (to absorb oil)
Dust with powdered sugar
