Cowboy Candy Wontons

       If you’re going to fry up some cream cheese wontons – why not add in some cowboy candy into the filling!  It’s a great little surprise!  These are fun and easy to make.  My most important recommendation is to not overstuff the wontons with filling or they can open up while frying.  Always use egg wash along all sides of the wonton which helps seal all the edges. The fillings are endless – you can make these without the cowboy candy – just add a touch more cream cheese filling.  Enjoy! Diane 

Homemade Cream Cheese Wonton
*with cowboy candy 


  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 cup Cowboy Candy 
  • 24 wonton wrappers 
  • 1 egg beaten for sealing wontons
  • canola oil for frying wontons


  • Combine the room temperature/softened cream cheese, sugar and onion powder.  Stir until well mixed.
  • Place a wonton wrapper on a flat surface and place a teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture into the center along with a ring or two of candied jalapeño.
  • Brush all of the edges of the wonton wrapper with the egg wash.  
  • Bring 2 opposite corners together in the middle of the wonton and pinch. Repeat with the other 2 corners and pinch to form a square package shape.
  • Repeat – keeping folded wontons on a saran wrap covered tray so they don’t dry out.
  • Heat 4 inches of oil in a deep pan or fryer to 350 degrees F.
  • Fry 4-6 wontons at a time, turning them as needed to make sure they brown evenly. This process takes about 3-5 minutes. Do not overcrowd the fryer as the oil temperature will drop greatly.  
  • Drain the cooked wontons on paper towels and repeat the frying process with remaining wontons. 
  • Let the wontons cool down a good 5 minutes or more as filling will be very hot. 
  • Serve with dipping sauce of choice if preferred.
