Nutella Wontons with Macerated Strawberries

If you think Nutella is only for Valentine’s Day, you’re really missing out. I did happen to make these Nutella Wontons with macerated strawberries for our Valentine’s Day dinner but they are so delicious and SO easy to make, they shouldn’t be a once-a-year dessert! 

Nutella Wontons with Macerated Strawberries - a perfect dessert you can prep ahead - Events To Celebrate

I frequently purchase wonton wrappers for a salad we use them in  and have left overs I’m not sure what to do with. Then one day I decided to stuff them with Nutella and fry them. It was a very good day indeed. 

There are just a few steps and you’ll be on your way to being ready for your stretchy pants and a chick-flick. 

Nutella Wontons

Nutella Wontons Tutorial - Events To Celebrate

Step #1:

I purchase the large square wonton wraps and cut them in half. Take one half and using a bit of water on your finger, wet the edges of the bottom half and across the middle where the fold will be. 

Step #2:

Scoop a couple of teaspoons of Nutella into the center. I used a Small Cookie Scoop and it helped immensely! It has a release trigger to push the Nutella out of the scoop. Then, when you’re all done (and really, for the sake of your guests you should wait until you’re really all done), you can lick the entire scoop!

Step #3:

Fold one end over the other. Start pressing just around the ball of Nutella pushing out any air bubbles and sealing all of the edges. If you’re making this in advance (up to a full day), you can layer them in a plastic storage container and separate layers with a slightly damp paper towel.

Step #4:

Heat a few inches of vegetable oil in a sauce pan to 275 degrees and then gently place your filled wontons in one at a time. Cook for about 30-60 seconds per side until golden brown. Remove from hot oil and drain on a paper towel lined plate. Allow to cool for a few minutes. Dust generously with powdered sugar through a fine mesh strainer just before serving. 

I cut up a pint of strawberries and added 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar, mixed it together and let it rest in my fridge for about an hour so the juices could mix together and make a delicious bowl of macerated strawberries to spoon over the top. The slight acidity in the strawberries really helps cut through the richness of the wontons. 

I’ve seen some recipes put a banana or strawberry slice inside the wonton with the Nutella, but I really prefer the contrast of the crispy shell and hot, gooey chocolate to the cold fruit. I just think it pairs together perfectly!

Please tell me you won’t save this until Valentine’s Day! Celebrate today!

Last Minute St. Patrick’s Day Fun For Kids

Last year my sister asked me to babysit overnight while she went out of town with her husband and we were so excited to get to have her 3 girls stay with us. The best part was that it meant we got to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with them! Even though it was a little bit last minute, I was able to get a few supplies from Dollar Tree and the grocery store and we were all set. I did all of these just the day before so even if you are totally last minute – you can pull these together and make the holiday really fun for your kids!

Inside Out Birthday Party Ideas

I think it’s safe to say that Inside Out was a favorite movie for people of all ages last year. It’s lighthearted and kid centered enough to keep my daughter enthralled, but had layers of deeper meaning that for the big kids/adults. It’s the perfect movie to turn into a birthday party if you ask me!

Dreamworks Home Birthday Party Ideas - Events To Celebrate

One of our favorite movies last year was HOME by Dreamworks. OH, Tip (Gratuity), Lucy, Kyle, Captain Smeck, Pig the cat – the whole lot are hilarious! I love that the movies are geared for kids, but have enough wit and humor that adults enjoy them too. As I mentioned in my Cinderella post, my daughters birthday isn’t for 6 months, but this is one of the ideas we’re brainstorming for her party and I thought I’d share the ideas I have in case you’re looking to host one yourself. So, again, while I don’t have finished party photos – hopefully they’ll give you a good jumping off point!
