This is an easy desert snack and another way you can get rid of over-ripe bananas. Nutella is a chocolate hazelnut spread and it turn warm and gooey in this fried wonton. It's like those sweet nutella crepes you see on Telegraph, but crunchier! You can make this with your small group and it'd be something fun to do after Bible studies!

Tom's Tips and Tricks_______________
Don't overfill the wonton, it will burst and spill out into the oil. I would err on the side of underfilling them. You can try a few and then adjust accordingly to figure out how much is the optimal level.
Make sure the oil isn't too hot and burn the wonton. Turn down heat as necessary. Pull it out when it turns 1 shade lighter than you want. It continues to cook after you remove it from oil. If it looks the right color in oil, it will be too dark when you pull it out.
[Possible side dish] If adventurous, you can serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
