I made these delicious dessert eggrolls after making a similar recipe in my recent Chinese dumpling class. They are really good as long as you learn how to roll the eggroll wrappers, which os actually quite easy. The only problem is that the recipe makes a whole batch of them so they're really better for a dinner party when you have large group to serve so the extras don't go to waste, since they don't hold up. This is a fun take on a chinese eggroll and you can vary up the chocolate and fruit in the filling to make your own creation.
Sasha's Dessert Eggrolls
15 oz ricotta cheese
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
1/2 cup fo confectioner's sugar
Mix the ingredients for the filling (the ricotta, pomegranate, chocolate chips and honey). Place a large dollop in the center of an eggroll wrapper. With the corner facing you, roll on a diagonal, folding in the sides to make an eggroll. At the end of the rolling process, seal the tip with a couple drops of water. Then pan fry the eggrolls until brown in canola oil. Using a strainer, dust with the confectioner's sugar before serving warm.
