Chocolate, Banana, and Coconut Won Tons with Blackberry Sauce

I had leftover won ton wrappers from the Ahi Tuna Salad that I made and saw the bananas and chocolate and thought what a great dessert! Granted these little babies are fried, but they are a nice easy treat every now and again (moderation, people). You could make a raspberry sauce instead if you prefer or even pineapple to compliment the coconut.  I may try these lil puppies with white chocolate and strawberries next time around.

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 8 won ton wrappers
  • 1 ripe banana, diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped chocolate or small chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • powdered sugar for dusting
  • 1 small container blackberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 orange zested
  • whipped cream
Directions:
1.)  In a medium bowl, combine banana, chocolate, and coconut.  Lay won ton wrappers on a flat surface and fill each one with about a tablespoon of the banana mixture.  Roll into a small burrito shape and press down on all the edges with your fingers or a fork.
2.)  In a medium saucepan, heat water, sugar, blackberries, and orange zest over medium heat until boiling.  Let boil for about 4 minutes until slightly thickened.  Remove pan from heat and let cool for 5 minutes.  Pour blackberry mixture into food processor or blender and pulse until well combined.
3.)  Heat a medium saute pan over medium heat and add a thin layer of vegetable oil to the bottom.  When the oil is hot, add all of the won ton packages.  Cook for about 1-2 minutes on each side until golden.  Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
4.)  Place two won ton packages on a plate, dust with powdered sugar, and spoon blackberry sauce around.  Top with a bit of whipped cream.
