Egg Rolls: Turtle (Pecans, Caramel, Chocolate)

Who says that you can't have egg rolls for dessert?? These little jewels are filled with all the same goodness as turtle candy - pecans, caramel, and chocolate. And what could be better than candy? DEEP FRIED CANDY!! I'm pretty sure that I'm in love with egg roll and won ton wrappers. I can now wrap up all kinds of unhealthy goodness and make it even worse by saturating it in hot oil!

I'm not going to even try convincing you that this is in any way healthy, but it is really good!

Here's what you need to make 'em:

          1/4 cup pecans, toasted and chopped into small pieces
          1/4 cup caramel pieces
          1/4 cup chocolate chips
          1/4 cup brown sugar
          1 package won ton wrappers
          Oil for deep frying

1/4 cup pecans, toasted and chopped
1/4 cup caramel pieces
1/4 cup chocolate chips
Mix them all together
1/4 cup brown sugar
Open up the package of won ton wrappers.
Place a little bit of the nut mix on the wrapper and spinkle a little brown sugar over it. Moisten all the edges of the wrapper with water.
Roll it up and pinch the ends shut. I tried several different folds but liked this one the best. As you can see, the rolls are only about the size of a finger. Let them rest and dry a bit before you fry them.
Deep fry in hot oil (350-375 degrees) until golden brown. Flip over as necessary and follow the instructions for your fryer. Drain and cool on a rack or paper towels.
