Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 5 mins
Total Time 15 mins
Servings 12 poppers

Ingredients 

  • 24 wonton wrappers
  • 1 large banana
  • 12 (1 1/2-inch) chocolate squares (See Kelly’s Notes)
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Homemade or store-bought salted caramel sauce, for serving

Equipment

  • Deep-fry thermometer

Instructions 

  • Arrange 12 wonton wrappers on your work surface. Cut the banana into 12 (1/4-inch) slices then place one chocolate square topped with one slice of banana in the center of each wonton wrapper. (See Kelly's Notes.)
  • Using a pastry brush or your fingers, brush the egg around the edges of the wonton wrappers then place a second wrapper atop the chocolate and banana. Firmly press the edges together so the poppers are sealed.
  • Line a baking sheet with paper towels. Add at least 3 inches of oil to a large heavy-bottomed stock pot and attach the deep-fry thermometer to the side. Heat the oil until it reaches 360ºF. Carefully add 2 to 3 poppers to the hot oil and fry them for about 2 minutes, flipping as needed, until they’re golden brown. Immediately transfer the poppers to the paper towel-lined baking sheet. Repeat the frying with the remaining poppers, allowing the oil to return to 360ºF between each batch.
  • Serve the poppers warm alongside caramel sauce for dipping.

Kelly’s Notes:

  • Choose your favorite type of chocolate and look for the 4-ounce size chocolate bars in your candy or baking aisles. The bars are often pre-cut into the perfect size squares for filling the wontons.
  • Don't cut the banana slices too thick or it will be difficult to seal the wonton poppers.

    Ok, would love to try it, but for someone who does not have access to wonton wrapper, do you have a recipe?
    Thanks!!

    These are delicious! Sometimes I skip the banana and add just a tiny amount of raspberry jam. Ohmygawd – The best!

  3. Do you think if you made (including fried step) these 2 or 3 days ahead of time they would work if you reheated them in the toaster oven? Would you fry them, let them cool, and refrigerate until the day of a party? I’m making several recipes for a party and it would be great to get some done ahead of time.

    1. Hi Taylor! I’ve never tried making these that far in advance, so I’m not sure how the quality/taste would hold up. They truly are best served warm, as the chocolate is melted and the wrapper remains crispy.

  4. *OMG*
    These are great. I made them for my family last night after dinner.
    Justataste.com has become my go to site for cooking. seriously! Its great and Kelly can expect more comments from me on foods. THANKS KELLY.

    1. Awesome! So glad you enjoyed the recipe, Marvin! And I’m extra-excited Just a Taste has become your go-to source :)

  5. I have seen a lot of recipes for things in wonton wrappers, but nothing like this! I bet these would be great at a party! So original and impressive!

  6. Crunchy treat with gooey chocolate and banana center – I am all over this!! Pinned!
