With Valentine’s Day just two days away, Jason and I finally decided to go out this year. Except, waiting two days before the most romantic holiday of the year to make a dinner reservation is not recommended. We usually stay in on this holiday but since we’re in a new city with so many amazing restaurants, I thought it would be nice to play dress-up and go to a fancy schmancy restaurant. But like I said, there are no reservations available. That’s why I’ll be making these cute little wonton cups instead.

Wonton cups can be so versatile. You can bake them up in mini muffin pans and fill them up to your favorite toppings. I chose to go the savory route with sweet, balsamic drenched strawberries, topped with crumbled goat cheese and fresh basil. They come together so quickly and easily, and have just the perfect romantic feel for that special someone. So if you’re like me and waited for the last minute for a Valentine’s Day dinner reservation, this will more than make up for it!

    So so so pretty and look so elegant! But not super hard – that’s the best kind of recipe! I hope you guys found a reservation! Gah! Ive made that mistake in years past when I actually wanted to go out but couldnt b/c everything was full!

    Adorable!! And so easy — totally my kind of appetizer. Bummer about all the reservations being full, but you want to know a little secret? It’s SO much better to go out for V-Day the day before or day after instead. Less crowded, better service AND you get to stretch the holiday for two days. ;)

    Was wondering what U did to the outside of the wonton cups. Is that just the way they come out? Sugars website says nothing. They look too yummy not to try!

    Um, could these be any more adorable and brilliant?! We’re the worst at those last-minute dinner plans on holidays. Case in point, we ended up at a taqueria last New Years Eve.

    Can you elaborate on making them ahead of time? How far in advance, say, for a party? Any special instructions? Thanks!
