Have you ever found the magical combination of two different appetizers fused into one? These spinach artichoke wontons are the perfect mash up of two popular snacks made into one ultimate appetizer. This snack will definitely be a hit at your next party!

HOW DO YOU MAKE SPINACH ARTICHOKE WONTONS?

These wontons are filled with a mixture of cream cheese, artichokes, spinach, parmesan and mozzarella cheese. They’re then wrapped up into little packets and deep fried until golden brown. It’s really that simple!

If need be, these spinach artichoke wontons can be prepared up to 4 hours in advance and stored in the fridge until they’re ready to be fried. Serve your wontons as is, or with a mixture of finely diced tomatoes and herbs which can be served on the side as a bruschetta style dip, or spooned over the wontons. The tomatoes add a freshness that compliments the richness of the wontons.

Folding wontons can be a bit tricky if you’ve never done it before. No worries, it’s truly not hard, but it’s nice to know the correct way of folding them in order to get a nice presentation for of your appetizer. For directions on how to properly fold a wonton, click HERE.

WHAT EXACTLY ARE WONTONS?

The little squares of dough used to hold the spinach and artichoke mixture are called wonton wrappers. These are made out of egg, salt, flour, and water. This is a very basic dough that’s popularly used in Asian dishes. You can purchase pre-made wonton wrappers in the produce section of most grocery stores.

CAN WONTONS BE BAKED INSTEAD OF FRIED?

Wontons can be baked if desired. However, they usually do not turn out the same even, golden brown consistency as frying would offer. Bake at 400 degrees for approximately ten minutes or until the wontons are golden brown.

I was pretty pleased with this fun snack – there’s nothing better than a good artichoke dip, but when you wrap it in a crispy wonton, it gets even better! I get tons of compliments every time I make these little guys, and you will too!

  1. I’m confused. In the recipe you state that the wontons should be fried at 350 degrees for 3 to 5 minutes, but in the text you state 400 degrees for 10 minutes. That is quite a difference. Please advise the correct oil temp and how long frying should take. Thank you.

    1. Everything as written is correct, the text you’re referring to talks about how long you would bake the wontons in the oven versus frying them.

  2. These look absolutely amazing! Something I would really love to make for my holiday party! Do you think these could be made in advance?

    1. You can fold up the wontons in advance, but they’re best when fried just before serving. You could try frying them in advance and reheating them in the oven until crisp, I just haven’t personally done that!
