Sassy Sweets: Apple Wontons with a Chocolate Mocha Drizzle

Print Friendly and PDF
Tree Top Apples had a contest a few months back to make a recipe using their products in the "sweet" and "savory" divisions.  My recipe was for Apple Wontons with Caramel Sauce was one of the five sweet finalists.  The prize for this honor was a Tree Top Apples Prize Pack.  I had no idea what to expect, so I tried not to think about it.  When I got home last week, I almost ran into a HUGE box.

I assumed, since it was addressed to me AND I wasn't expecting a big shipment, that it was from Tree Top!  I was also pleasantly surprised by the basket.

Yes, that's a Tree Top apple pen you see there!  Also, I was unaware how much stuff Tree Top produced.  One of my best friends R came to visit and she and I broke out the sparkling apple cider!  Delicious!  John and I had the huckleberry popcorn with movie night.  AWESOME!

Note: this picture was taken from Tree Top's website, when they judged my entry.  I like to make my wontons in triangle shapes...but it was such a pretty picture, I couldn't pass it up!  I also adjusted the recipe here to include chocolate mocha drizzle, instead of caramel, mainly because it's a lot easier, and also because this is John's favorite sauce.  He wasn't feeling good this weekend, so anything he ate was good for me!

Apple Wontons with a Chocolate Mocha Drizzle
Serves: 4
12 wonton wrappers
1 cup applesauce
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 tablespoon skim milk
1 tablespoon instant coffee

NOTE:  Again, here goes me and my dislike of too much nutmeg!  Adjust to your tastebuds!

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.  Combine apple sauce, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Place one tablespoon in each wonton wrapper and using water (or an eggwash, but I use water), lightly brush the outer edges of the wonton.  Seal the wontons shut and place on a greased cookie sheet, keeping about 1/2 inch between each.  Lightly coat the wontons with cooking spray and sprinkle sugar on both sides of the wontons.  Place in the oven for 5 minutes.  While the wontons are baking, stir the instant coffee into the milk.  Heat the chocolate chips for about sixty to ninety seconds on low in the microwave.  Stir in the milk and whisk until smooth.  Remove the wontons and place 3 on each plate.  Drizzle the chocolate mocha mixture over the tops and serve warm.

Until the next time my oven is on...
