These can’t-eat-just-one little packages of creamy goodness are great for any holiday party! I don’t recommend making these ahead unless you have an oven you can crisp them up in when you get to the party!
Preheat oil to 325-350ºF.
In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, green onions, and cheddar cheese thoroughly. Add crab/krab and fold in.
Follow instructions on wonton wrapper package to get you started: Get a small bowl of water, lay one wrapper on flat surface. Dip your finger in the water and run around edge of wrapper. Add 1 spoonful of mixture (about 1 heaping tablespoon) to the middle of the wrapper.
Now, you can try your own design with the edges, but I have found that if you wrap one side over then turn, wrap the next side over, then turn, and next over then turn, and last side over, you make a little package that generally won’t have an explosion. Make sure they are sealed well and put on parchment or nonstick surface.
Continue until all mixture is gone. You can make these ahead and freeze them before frying, or just put in the freezer for about 15 minutes then fry or just plop them in the fryer as you seal them.
Heat enough oil to deep fry the wontons. It takes about 3 minutes of frying to get to a golden brown. If the filling starts to come out, then the oil is too hot.
Simple and easy!
