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.
