Wow, your party guests with some fun New Year's Eve appetizers. These Fried Won Ton Clocks filled with gooey cheese are sure to be a hit!
Before your New Year's resolutions begin, you can indulge one last time with these fried Cheese Filled Won Ton Clocks.
Each of these festive New Year's Eve appetizers has a crispy fried won ton filled with flavored cream cheese.
They are really easy to make and taste great right out of the frying oil or reheated in the oven.
Filling up won tons and decorating them for holidays is so easy and fun.
I chose to fill these won tons with Philadelphia Veggie Cream Cheese because I wanted a quick and easy appetizer, but you can get creative with your fillings.
If you want a more substantial filling you can follow the directions for making my Madeira Mushroom filled Halloween Won Tons or you could use plain cream cheese and make an artichoke cream cheese filling like I did when I made my Fried Won Ton Roses.
Let's make some Cheesy Won Ton Clocks
step 1 - Make Won Ton Clocks
- Draw the clock face onto 16 of the round won ton wrappers using a black edible ink marker.
- Brush egg wash over and scoop out a rounded teaspoonful of veggie cream cheese onto the middle of the 16 remaining won ton wrappers.
- Place one decorated won ton on top of the cheese and press to seal around the edges.
step 2 - fry cheese-filled won tons
- Bring a pot of oil to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Place filled won tons in the fryer, clock face down (this will give them a nicer shape.)
- Fry until golden brown on both sides, about a minute.
step 3 - drain off excess oil
- Drain on a piece of paper towel.
- Serve hot.
How to make these before your party?
You make, decorate, and fry these before your party and just reheat them in a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for 5-7 minutes until heated through. They are crispiest right out of the fryer, but they taste very good once reheated.
Turn delicious Cheese Filled Fried Won Ton into New Year's Eve Countdown Clocks.
- 32 round won ton wrappers
- black food coloring marker
- egg wash (mix one egg with 1 teaspoon water)
- ½ cup Philadelphia Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese (or your favorite flavored cream cheese)
- pot of oil for frying
Draw the clock face onto 16 of the round won ton wrappers using a black edible ink marker.
Brush egg wash over and scoop out .05 ounces (a rounded teaspoonful) of veggie cream cheese onto the middle of the 16 remaining won ton wrappers.
Place one decorated won ton on top of the cheese and press to seal around the edges.
Bring a large stockpot of oil to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place filled won tons in hot oil, clock face down (this will give them a nicer shape.)
Fry until golden brown on both sides, about a minute.
Drain on a piece of paper towel. Serve hot.
These New Year's Eve appetizers are best right out of the hot oil, but you can make them ahead, and reheat them in a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for 5-7 minutes until heated through.

Love this idea ... won ton wrappers are so versatile! Who knew that clocks could taste so good 😉
Only YOU would come up with wonton clocks for the new year - they are fantastic and would you believe
I have a few wontons in the fridge?? (Although I might have to make square clocks!)
The square won ton wrappers are much easier to find. They can easily be cut using a cookie cutter, by hey, a square clock works too!
