HONEY GLAZED FRIED WONTON CHIPS

2 Comments

These fried wontons, sweetened with a honey glaze and garnished with sesame seeds are sticky, crispy and crunchy. They are great as snacks or as a sweet finish to any meal.

My husband, my kids, and I used to frequent this one Chinese buffet nearby. It had a large selection of food, was tasty and reasonably priced. The one thing that kept me coming back was the all-you-can-eat crab legs. I always reloaded on seconds and thirds. Over the years, the restaurant quality declined and we stopped going. 

These wonton chips are inspired by another item I enjoyed on the restaurant’s menu, the sweetened fried wontons. I love the simplicity, crunch and subtle sweetness. The wontons were simply fried, and I suspect they are sweetened with sugar based syrup. 

My version of the wontons are honey glazed and garnished with sesame seeds. They are crispy, sweet, sticky, and delicious!


If you take a quick look on this site, you will see that I’m a fan of wonton cooking. These Shrimp 
Wonton Chips and Pork and Shrimp Fried Wontons are the bomb! And this Pork and Shrimp Wonton Soup makes me feel so warm and cozy!

I have been frying a little more than usual lately, but when the family is looking for a tasty treat to break up the day, fried food is always appreciated around here. I don’t feel completely guilty eating these. After all, there are plenty of honey and sesame seeds to almost qualify the wontons as healthy food ;)
