Here I thought I would catch up on my writing over the three-day weekend! Not…
The Don was home from Paris and craving some healthy home-cooking after an extravagant dinner at The Ritz!
So I did a lot of cooking…. How was your weekend? Relaxing, fun in the sun, catch a flick, some BBQ and brews maybe, that’s fantastic! Now it’s back to work and the final countdown for school.
Today, I’d like to share a quick and easy, light, healthy, fruit-filled dessert that I brought to the May meeting of FBLA (Food Bloggers Los Angeles). I had only been to one other meeting of this amorphous group of LA food bloggers and I really hoped that these little dessert cups would turn out better than good because, as you can imagine, the “pot luck” at these meetings is quite the spread.
When I added the mulberries, my first reaction was, “they look like caterpillars!”, but I was sacrificing the entire pint of elusive mulberries I scored at the farmers market, minus the few that I popped into my mouth as a taste test, and my last minute creation would have to suffice. Luckily, my colorful caterpillar creations garnered a few raves from my esteemed colleagues and figuratively blushed at all the attention from the food paparazzi! There is much more to share about the wonderful community that I’ve found in FBLA and the star of the show that day: Creminelli Fine Meats, more on that to come.
Wonton Dessert Fruit Cups
adapted from Eat Better America
24 wonton wrappers
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 tablespoons honey
1 ½ cup Greek yogurt
1 cup fresh chopped mango
1 pint mulberries
Garnish: mint leaves
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Using a 12-cup muffin pan or two 6-cup muffin pans, line each cup with a wonton wrapper. Brush wonton wrappers with a little butter. Place a second wrapper diagonally on top of each of the first ones. Brush second wrapper with a little butter.
Bake 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool. Remove from pan.
Heat honey in the microwave for 20 seconds. Brush with wonton cups with honey.
Using a spoon, place a dollop of yogurt in each wonton cup. Top with chopped mango and a mulberry.
Variations: spoon a teaspoon of cherry or other fruit preserves into the wonton cups in place of honey. Fold a cup of mixed fresh berries into the yogurt instead of topping with mango.

These were wonderful and those mulberries were gorgeous!! Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend – mine was great but too short!!!
Oh my gosh Priscilla! Those are SUCH a great idea. Those would be perfect for a dinner party or a bbq! They look so yummy
These are so pretty! What a versatile dessert! Never thought to turn the wontons in the cups!
I love the idea of the wonton cups! I guess the mulberries do look vaguely like caterpillars, but I still think the whole dessert looks wonderful!

This dessert look very attractive and elegant to me! I love the color contrast as well how you serve it in a individual eatable cups! Very well done!!!
@Carolyn – Actually, someone else, besides me, thought they looked like caterpillars but that, and the colors, is what made them so striking!
I love this dessert and I LOVE mulberries! When we came to the States some 20 years ago we could not find mulberries anywhere… we were all seriously crushed! :))
Oh my, these wonton cups seem like a perfect way to serve dessert and fruit together. Very chic!
Mmm! You have seriously peaked my tastebuds with these wonton dessert cups! Wouldn’t they be lovely with apples and a sprinkle of crisp topping? See…you got me going…thanks Priscilla.
PS Finally remembered to add you to my bloglovin.com so I can keep up on what you are doing…I spy on you…lol! And thanks again for a great interview over at my site 🙂
Those fruit cups look so lovely and inviting! Beautifully presented.

Oh wow..I must try one of these, or several 🙂 They do look a bit like caterpillars but oh so delightful…I bet these were a huge hit 🙂
I can imagine the crunchy wontan mixed with the cool mangoes and yoghurt and berries…yummy! Lovely recipe!

A great way to use wontons! Love the mulberry, too don’t see it too often. Perfect mix of flavors an textures.. yummy!
The wonton cups look so tempting. I haven’t eaten mulberries in years, we used to have a big tree in my grandparents back yard. Such a joy to climb and pick our own mulberries.
Thanks for sharing Priscilla

What a cool idea for a dessert. I have never used wonton skins in a dessert like this–it’s kind of like phyllo, no? I love it. Looks simple and delicious!
