Crispy 'n' Sweet Chocolate-Hazelnut Dumplings

Southern Living OCTOBER 2008

  • Yield: Makes 30 dumplings (about 10 servings)
  • Prep time:30 Minutes


  • 1/2 (8-oz.) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup hazelnut spread
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 (16-oz.) package won ton wrappers
  • Vegetable oil
  • Powdered sugar


1. Whisk together cream cheese, hazelnut spread, and flour until blended and smooth.

2. Arrange 1 won ton wrapper on a clean, flat surface. (Cover remaining wrappers with plastic wrap or a damp towel to prevent drying out.) Lightly moisten edges of wrapper with water. Place about 2 tsp. chocolate mixture in center of wrapper; fold 2 opposite corners together over chocolate mixture, forming a triangle. Press edges together to seal, removing any air pockets. Cover with plastic wrap or a damp cloth. Repeat procedure with remaining wrappers and chocolate mixture.

3. Pour oil to depth of 3 inches in a Dutch oven; heat to 375°. Fry dumplings, 3 at a time, about 20 seconds on each side or until golden brown and edges are crisp. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, and serve immediately.

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Nutella for hazelnut spread.


Fry time: 40 seconds per batch.
