These 2-Ingredient Chocolate Filled Wontons are made in the air fryer for a simple dessert that tastes delicious. Vegan and kid-friendly, they’re perfect for every occasion. Make them in your air fryer in minutes!
These 2-Ingredient Chocolate Filled Wontons resulted out of a desperate craving for chocolate and a need to switch up my desserts. Don’t get me wrong, I love classic recipes. With recipes like this Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie, Double Chocolate Brownie Cups, and an easy Coffee (Mug) Cake, who wouldn’t? However, every once in a while I just need to add some variety to my life, ya know?
So, while attempting to clear out my fridge and satisfy my sweet tooth, I discovered a package of wonton wrappers. Then, I found a jar of chocolate spread. One thing led to another, and the rest is history. What matters here is what resulted were these glorious chocolate wontons.
Sweet, flaky, and delicious, they’re the easiest dessert you never knew you needed, but trust me, friends, you NEED this recipe. It’s a game-changer and on repeat in my house, but I’m pretty sure you get it. This recipe is delicious. End of story. What you care about is how we make them, and I’ve got you covered with the recipe, cooking tips, and more!
Can You Make Chocolate Wontons in an Air Fryer?
You betcha’ you can! Actually, I recommend that you do. For one, it’s way easier than heating up a pan and frying oil. Plus, it’s a lot healthier!
To make these dessert wontons, first separate the wonton wrappers, and lay them out on a piece of parchment paper.
Then, add a teaspoon of the chocolate spread onto the center of each wonton wrapper. Use your finger to gently dampen the outside edges of 2 opposite sides of the wrapper with either water or melted coconut oil.
Fold the wonton wrapper connecting the dry edges to the sides just dampened, and lightly press down all around the outermost edges to make sure they stick.
Next, form the wonton by finding the side that has no seem, and act as though you’re pinching the two corners together.
Brush on melted oil, and pop the wontons in the air fryer for 3 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Let them cool for 2-3 minutes, and enjoy!
Baking Tips for the Perfect Dessert Wontons
With only 2 ingredients, this recipe is pretty simple. In fact, you could probably just roll it all in a ball, and it would still turn out delicious. However, for those perfectionists out there, I’ve got a few baking tips to help you ensure your wontons turn out beautiful every time you make them.
Double the Recipe – Let’s be honest, this recipe is going to go fast. To prevent running out, or if you’re cooking for a crowd and not just stuffing your face (can’t relate), feel free to double or even triple the batch. If you can fit them all in your air fryer, the cook time should remain the same. Otherwise, cook the wonton in batches of 12 or however many you like until they’re all done.
Don’t overfill! – As the saying goes, less is more. Be sure not to get too greedy with your chocolate spread. Otherwise, your wontons will not close properly, and the filling will bubble out the sides creating a big mess.
Watch carefully – This Chocolate wontons recipe burns super easily so be sure to keep a close eye on it! If you’re worried about burning them, simply check them every minute or so. You’ll know they’re done cooking when the wrapper turns a pretty golden color and turns flaky.
Don’t go too heavy-handed – As with the chocolate spread, more is not always a good thing with the coconut oil either. Use a light hand when applying it to the outside of the wrapper. Too much will result in heavy, oily wontons and will likely create a chewy texture.
Filling Substitutions & Alternatives for Chocolate Wontons
While I used a vegan chocolate spread for this recipe, the options are basically endless! For instance, any nut butter, seed butter, or chocolate spread can be used. Personally, vegan Nutella and chocolate tahini are my personal faes, and trust me, I’ve tried them all. You could even use your favorite chocolate chips, and melt them down into a spread to be used. Really, there are no rules. You do you!
Fun Toppings & Add-Ins
Okay, we all know chocolate is basically a complete food group on its own. However, it’s always fun to add a little flair to your favorite recipes, right! So, why not experiment with different ingredient add-ins and toppings to create unique flavors. For example, toss in chopped nuts or mini marshmallows for a fun s’mores theme. Or, use peanut butter and jelly for a cute twist on everyone’s go-to sandwich. Other noteworthy filling contenders include candy pieces, crumbled cookies, cookie dough, jam, berries, cream cheese, and more!
Or, add some extra flavor and pizzazz to the outside of your baked wontons recipe with toppings like whipped cream, cinnamon sugar, chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, whatever your heart desires.
Can Chocolate Wontons be Made Ahead of Time?
The answer to this question is yes and no. If you’re making this baked wontons recipe for a party that day, they will stay fresh in a Ziploc bag at room temperature. However, the longer you leave them out, the softer they get. So, if you’re waiting any longer than 1 day, they might not be so great.
However, baked wontons can be frozen! To do so, lay the wontons (raw or cooked) in a single layer on a baking sheet, and place it in the freezer. Once they’re completely frozen, toss them in a Ziploc bag or airtight container. They will stay fresh for up to 12 months but are best eaten within 6. Then, when you’re ready to eat them, just pop them straight into the air fryer or oven until they have thawed completely.
