These cinnamon sugar wonton chips from Heart, Mind and Seoul sound like a great excuse for me to stuff my face – um, I mean, indulge in moderation – with one of my all-time favorite food groups: sugar. Especially since they’d help me satisfy cravings for my second favorite food group (potato chips) without all the oil and salt and mind-bogglingly delicious saturated fat.
See? I’d actually be SAVING calories by eating these things.
Plus, I’m relatively certain that cinnamon has antioxidants or something.*
*This statement not tested by the FDA, or common sense.
They are baked, though, and the directions do call for leftover wonton wrappers, so it’s like healthy recycling. I feel better about myself already.
Reader Stephanie took one look at the super-simple recipe and said the famous last words of CraftFailers everywhere: “What could go wrong?” And, like everyone else who’s ever made the mistake of thinking something that should be easy will be easy, she was about to find out.
Unless she sprinkled her wontons with sugar in the form of chocolate, I’m guessing maybe she left these in the oven a teense too long. Like maybe a week or two. Well, at least they’re crispy – although I think I’d still wash them down with a bag of potato chips. And a few dozen cookies, too (it looks like most of that sugar burnt off, and I did promise my taste buds some sugar…)
