My sister Jeanie is hosting an intimate dinner party for New Year’s Eve and was looking for an sophisticated yet easy dessert to make for her guests. I suggested this Banana Walnut Wonton recipe which is amazingly simple to make yet so elegant and festive when served in a martini glass over French vanilla ice cream and drizzled with melted chocolate.
You simply combine chopped ripe banana and combine with store-bought candied walnut pieces and sugar. Place a tablespoon or so in the center of a wonton wrapper.
Fold the wrapper into a classic wonton shape by folding the skin into a triangle first and then dabbing the bit of water on the right side. Fold the right side under the left side and pinch. Fry wontons in a wok or deep skillet filled with oil and heated to 350 degrees until golden brown.
Place two wontons in a martini glass over French vanilla ice cream and drizzle with with melted
chocolate. Add some mint leaves for garnish.
2 ripe bananas, chopped
2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup store-bought candied walnut pieces
20 wonton wrappers
oil for frying
French vanilla ice cream
mint leaves for garnish
