Ingredients: 1 pkg. of Wonton wrappers

Splenda or sugar substitute
How To Prepare: Heat oil in a deep wok or cast iron skillet. Fold up Wonton wrappers in any shape you like and drop into hot oil in small batches - 3 or 4 at a time. Quickly flip over Wontons once, allow to fry for a couple of seconds and immediately remove from pan. They should be just lightly fried. Place on paper towel and allow to drain till all wrappers are cooked.

Place fried Wontons into a plastic bag with Cinnamon sweetened to your liking with Splenda or other sugar substitute and shake to coat. Kick back and enjoy right out of the bag or container. Makes a fantastic change from chips, pretzles or popcorn for movie nights. Crumble and serve with low-carb, sugarfree ice cream for some added crunch. Substitute onion or garlic powder (or a mixture of both) for "chips" and serve with dip, or use as a base for "nachos" and top with whatever you like! Fry them up with your bacon drippings, crunch them up and use as a topping for your salad! Makes a great light "crust" too for desserts! The recipe possibilities are endless!

If you are you as sick as I am of substituting Pork Rinds for absolutely everything that might require some crunch, you're gonna love using Wonton wrappers instead. Did you know that 3 oz. of Wonton wrappers has only 5 grams of carbs? And you can get a ton of them in a package for less than $3.00? They're wonderful! They fry up in seconds, they absorb very little oil, they stay wonderfully crispy, they don't have that heavy, pork-fried taste (which really doesn't work well with cinnamon and sugar) that Pork Rinds do, and they're so filling. Enjoy!

Positive aspects of the product (pros): tastes great!!
Cons: carb count is waaaaay too high

this is a great concept, but the carb count is off!!!!! i used egg roll wrappers (found in the produce section) one sheet (approx. 6" square) has about 11 carbs. i cut them into strips and got about 10 strips out of 1 sheet (cut down the middle, and then strips across). i just make sure i don't eat more than 5. hard to do, though, because they are very good.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): tastes great!!
Cons: carb count off

ok..i found that phyllo dough works really well, too. the only drawback is that they are paper thin and a little hard to work with. I got the Randalls (a grocery store in houston) brand and for two sheets there are 30 carbs. however, the sheets are 13" by 17". i cooked two sheets and it filled an entire gallon bag. they are also very good just plain with nothing on them. they practically melt in your mouth.
