New Year’s Eve Appetizer – Cheese Filled Fried Won Ton Clocks

Cheese Filled Fried Won Ton Clocks |

Before your New Year’s resolutions begin, you can indulge one last time with these fried Cheese Filled Won Ton Clocks. I eat so many sweets that I try to stay away from fried foods, yet I can’t seem to resist them when I’m at a party. Many of my family members prefer fried or salty foods over sweets, so I’m always sure to make something they like, and these fit the bill. 
New Year's appetizer
I wanted to keep these New Year’s party appetizers really simple, so I filled round won ton wrappers with Philadelphia Garden Vegetable cream cheese. I drew on the clock face using a black edible ink marker then fried these up.

Filling up won tons and decorating them for holidays is so easy and fun. If you want a more substantial filling you can follow the directions for making my Madeira Mushroom filled Halloween Won Tons. They are one of my all time favorite appetizers, but believe me these cheese filled won tons are really good too, plus they take minutes to put together.

New Year's Eve snack ideas

Bring pot of oil to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Place filled won tons in fryer, clock face down (this will give them a nicer shape.) Fry until golden brown on both sides, about a minute. 

New Year's snack ideas
Drain on a piece of paper towel. Serve hot. 
You can make these before your party then just reheat them in a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for 5-7 minutes until heated through, but they are best right out of the hot oil.
