Bowties for Kids
Yields 2 bowties per egg roll wrapper
Children love this sweet dessert, and they can help prepare this easy version made with egg roll wrappers.
1 package egg roll wrappers
1 cup brown sugar
¼ cup white sugar
2 tablespoons honey
½ cup water
Oil for deep-frying
Cut each wrapper vertically into 4 equal pieces. Cut a ¾-inch slit in the middle of each piece.
Lay one piece on top of the other and make a knot like a bow tie: Fold the top and thread the 2 pieces through the slit. Turn over, fold the bottom and thread through the other way. Spread out the folded ends slightly to make sure the entire surface is deep-fried.
Heat 1½ inches of oil in a heavy skillet. Deep-fry a few of the bowties at a time until they are golden brown, turning over once. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
When all the bowties are deep-fried, bring the brown sugar, white sugar, honey, and water to boil in a medium-sized saucepan. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly over low heat. Dip each of the bowties into the boiling syrup, drain, and set aside to harden. Serve cold.
