GUYS!!!! I seriously cannot even tell you how amazing these are. Well, I can, and I’m going to try to express the deliciousness, but it’s impossible because they are JUST THAT GOOD. Seriously. My husband who HATES apples, was devouring these, and that says a lot. Also, don’t be intimidated about frying these bad boys, it’s so easy. Really. I used to be scared to fry anything, until I realized it’s easy and you don’t need that much oil. So, if you need the perfect apple filled treat, you have to try these Caramel Apple Dumplings!
These come together really easily, and you only need a handful of ingredients; most of the stuff you probably already have in your pantry. You do need wonton wrappers, and if you aren’t sure where to find them, check in the produce area by the tofu or organic yogurt. If you can’t find them, ask! You could also ask for eggroll wrappers, they are usually right next to each other. The wonton wrappers are little squares, perfect for wrapping these little guys up!
Now, while I was making these, I thought it might be nice to show y’all a more in depth explanation…so I made a VIDEO!!! I really still can’t believe it, because I’ve never made a video before, but I am really happy about getting it done for this recipe! You can see just how simple these Caramel Apple Dumplings are to make!
How to Make Caramel Apple Dumplings
- 3 granny smith apples, cored, peeled and diced
- 2 TBS brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 2 TBS butter
- 20 wonton wrappers
- vegetable or canola oil for frying
- caramel sauce
- powdered sugar for garnish
- 1. In a large saucepan add butter and melt over medium heat. Add brown sugar and stir to combine. Add apples, and cook for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Strain apples and set apples aside in a bowl.
- 2. Arrange a workstation with a small bowl of water, your wonton wrappers, caramel sauce, and bowl of apples. Working one at a time, add about 1 TBS of apples to the center of your wonton, add a drizzle of caramel (about 1/4 tsp) then using your finger, wipe water across all sides of the wonton. Bring one corner up to the other in the center, and press together to seal. Then bring up the other 2 corners, and run your finger along to seal all edges. Set aside and repeat for all wontons/apple mixture.
- 3. In a large stockpot, add about 1 inch of oil. Heat over medium high heat, and when you see ripples the oil is ready. Carefully drop the wontons bottom side down into the oil and cook for about 1-2 minutes on the first side. When they start browning, use a spatula and flip over. Cook another 1-2 minutes or until crispy. Remove from oil and set on a paper towel lined plate. Repeat until all wontons are fried.
- 4. Arrange Caramel Apple Dumplings on a serving dish, drizzle with caramel sauce, then sprinkle powdered sugar over the top.
- 5. Serve hot and enjoy!
