  1. This looks so good. I will definitely try it!!

  2. Cutest food ever! Going to make these for the kiddo’s birthday!

  3. Made these today and omigosh, were they ever fabulous! Took them to a get-together at a neighbor’s house and they were a huge hit. I never ever would have thought of making the shells from won ton wrappers, but they were so perfectly crispy. Much better than tortillas IMHO. I used some different fillings, but that’s part of the beauty of this recipe — you can fill the cups with whatever you choose.

    • P.S. I happened to have small square rather than round wrappers, so that’s what I used. The squares worked just fine.

  4. Can the wonton cups be made a head of time?

  5. Where can I find won ton wrappers? Thanks.
