To make Giada De Laurentiis Nutella Fried Ravioli, you’ll want to start by taking store-bought wonton wrappers and brushing the edges with an even amount of egg wash. Drop in a generous teaspoon of chocolate-hazelnut spread, avoiding any temptation to put it directly in your mouth – it’s hard, we know! Then fold the wonton sheet diagonally to form a triangle and gently crimp the edges with the tips of two fingers. Be careful, because if you press too much on the delicate paper or if you do not seal the edges sufficiently, the ravioli could burst when fried.
Then prepare a Dutch oven with a little vegetable oil heated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and add a few pieces of ravioli at a time. (Working in batches helps to avoid overcrowding, which only prevents the ravioli from cooking properly.) The recipe states that the frying process should take about 45 seconds per side, although it may take longer to cook. get to the perfect golden state (via Food Network).
This baking project can be done solo, but De Laurentiis and his mom demonstrate how even sweeter it is when loved ones do it together (via YouTube). Plus, someone can fry while the other assembles the dumplings and makes the fresh mint filling, which Giada in the video says “makes it really pretty.” When the allotted time has elapsed, gently remove each batch of ravioli from the casserole dish and, while they are still hot, sprinkle them with a fine dusting of powdered sugar. So, enjoy it immediately!
