This is a type of dessert I’ve enjoyed my whole life. It was definitely the number one treat me and my brother, and even my dad would ask my mom to prepare, usually for breakfast. I’ve never craved something so much as these cheesy, chewy, crunchy, fried honey covered delights!

You will need…

  • Won-ton skins of whatever size or thickness you prefer.
  • Your favorite cheese (I would recommend either a dry mozzarella, Monterrey jack, or even cheddar — brie or cream cheese would be good too).
  • A bit of water.
  • Your favorite honey.

How to prepare…

  1. If you’re using a harder cheese such as Monterrey jack, shred a good amount into a bowl. If you’re using a soft cheese like brie make sure to remove the skin.
  2. Lay down a won-ton skin on a clean plate and dip your finger in the water. Then carefully wipe the edges of the won-ton to soften them.
  3. Put the cheese inside the skin. Make sure you don’t put too much otherwise it will ooze out. The best way to master this is to keep making them until they come out perfectly.
  4. Close it up by folding it in half and press down on the edges. To seal it in completely you should make little folds. There are several different techniques for this. Here is a good example on how to do it.
  5. Heat up a pan with about a quarter of an inch of oil in it.
  6. Once the oil is hot (you can test it by dropping a small piece of won-ton skin in the oil to see if it bubbles) drop the cheese things in the oil.
  7. Once they puff up you can look underneath to see if they’re golden brown. If not, let it fry a bit longer. Then flip it over and let the other side fry.
  8. Place them in a plate with paper towels to soak up the extra grease.
  9. After a few minutes place in another dish and pour honey on top. The cheese things need to be hot enough to melt the honey.
  10. Enjoy!
