We love Nono's with a passion. Their menu of comfort food literally brings comfort, that's why we tried to hack Nono's truffle cheese wontons.
These bite-sized crispy cheese bombs themselves, drizzled with a divine combo of truffle oil and honey, make for show-stopping appetizers. They're simple to prep and present yet delivers a cheesy richness that takes us in a fancy food trance.
- ½ cup cream cheese, softened
- ¼ cup grated white cheddar
- ¼ cup grated mozzarella
- 12 molo or wonton wrappers
- water, for sealing
- neutral oil, for frying
- truffle oil
- walnuts, roughly chopped
In a bowl, combine cream cheese, white cheddar, and mozzarella.
Working one at a time, spoon about ½ tbsp. of the cheese mixture onto the center of a molo or wonton wrapper.
Place the wrapper on your palm in a diamond shape, then brush some water onto the top and bottom points using your fingers.
Bring the top and bottom points to the center, forming a triangle. Press the edges to seal.
Fold the remaining open points (left and right) to the center and press along the edges to seal.
Place the wontons in the freezer for 10–15 minutes to set. Meanwhile, heat frying oil to 350F/177C.
- Deep-fry your wontons in batches until golden brown. Transfer wontons to a paper towel-lined plate or tray to remove excess oil.
Assemble the wontons on a serving plate, then drizzle with truffle oil and honey. Garnish wontons with walnuts before serving.
