Wontons are wonderful, you can fill wontons with all sorts of things, taco meat, pork, sweet fillings, and so much more. I present to you Nutella Wontons. Nutella is a wonderful chocolatey spread that features hazelnuts as one of the primary flavors. I love Nutella on toast in the morning, but why should we stop there? You can make these wontons at home, and present a dessert to your friends and family that they may have not seen before. Now, if you haven’t tried Nutella, you should go buy a jar of this wonderous treat. You find it in the grocery store, very close to the peanut butter and jelly. If you like chocolate and hazelnuts you Nutella will soon become a favorite of yours.
