Easy Nutella Pockets Recipe: A Fun Fried Food for Hanukkah Festivities

In the Hanukkah story, one tiny jar of oil keeps the lamps burning for eight full nights. Since Hanukkah celebrates this miracle, it's traditional to eat foods fried in oil as part of the festivities.

PJ Library Connector Jennifer Stempel shares her easy Hanukkah recipe for fried Nutella pockets. They are so easy to make.

Cuisine: Jewish
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: varies


  • vegetable oil
  • wonton wrappers
  • chocolate hazelnut spread (Nutella)
  • banana, sliced into rounds to make coins
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • powdered sugar (optional)

Here's how to make it: 

  1. In a large sauté pan (or electric skillet), add oil until it is about 1 inch deep. Heat over medium-high heat (between 375 and 400 degrees F).
  2. Lay wonton wrapper flat. Add 1 teaspoon of Nutella and top with a banana coin.
  3. Dip your finger in the egg and run it along the edges of the wrapper. Fold the wrapper in half to form a triangle. Push down the edges to seal.
  4. Fry each wonton packet in oil, about 1 minute per side. Drain on a plate lined with paper towels. Dust with powdered sugar, if desired. 

Note: If you're making these for a guest with a nut allergy, swap out the Nutella for SunButter or WowButter.
