These little treats look like snow-covered crescent moons. To achieve the look, fill wonton wrappers with chopped chocolate, fold in half, fry in oil, and dust with confectioners' sugar.

- 1 cup confectioners' sugar
- 2 1/2 cups vegetable oil
- 24 wonton wrappers
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- 1/2 cup finely chopped milk chocolate (3 ounces)
Place confectioners' sugar in a medium bowl. In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium-high. Brush edges of each wonton wrapper with egg and place 1 teaspoon chocolate in center. Fold wrappers in half over chocolate and press edges firmly to seal. When oil is hot (an extra wonton wrapper should sizzle and float to top when added), fry wontons, four at a time, until golden brown and crisp, about 2 minutes, flipping occasionally. With a slotted spoon, transfer wontons to bowl with sugar and toss to coat. Serve immediately.
