In a world where it seems like so few things are spared from a deep fried fate, I never thought I would be That Girl.

You know, the one who swears up and down for half her life that she would never ever fill a pot with hot oil and dip things in it, SO HELP HER.

And then goes and adds one more thing to the list of Stuff We Probably Should Have Never Dipped In Hot Oil, Except We’re REEEAAALLLYYYY Glad We Did.

Can you forgive me? Let’s go with yes.

The thing is, that even if you don’t initially, you will once I shove one of these bad boys in your piehole.

I’m not above using brute force and nutella dumpling bribery to make you love me, and that’s just the honest truth.

Here’s the thing that I’ve learned about deep frying that’s made me change my tune: IT’S.NOT.HARD.

Sure, it seems like bringing oil to a specific temperature in a large (preferably cast-iron if you don’t have a deep fryer) pot and dropping things in it is an insurmountable task, but actually so long as you keep an eye on things and don’t make any sudden movements that cause the aforementioned oil pot to spill all over your lower extremities – it’s all good.

Now, I’m not saying to go and deep fry all the things, all the times. I, for one, like my arteries and would like to keep them thank you very much. Buuuutttt there is a time and a place for everything, especially if it’s worth it.

Spoiler Alert: These nutella s’mores dumplings are worth it.

They’re everything that is great about the savory dumpling (i.e. the crispiness), except stuffed with Nutella and sprinkled with a mixture of cinnamon, sugar, and graham cracker crumbs after frying. Served with marshmallow fluff for dipping, they’re everything you love about the s’more but in a crispy crunchy deep fried wonton shell.

Mac and Cheese Dumplings

I made these this past Superbowl Sunday with my friend Ashley, when she so graciously invited me over to have a #Dumplingpalooza in lieu of watching even a single second of the big game. We love getting together to tackle crazy recipes or fun food themes together. Two years ago we dedicated our Superbowl Sunday to macaron-making and Burmese-food-eating, but this year was aaaalllll about the dumpling.

While we brainstormed quite a few ideas for this day-o-frying, we were in unanimous agreement that we needed both something sweet and something cheesy to round out our menu. The sweet component came in the form of these nutella s’mores dumplings (*swoon), while for the “cheesy”, we just couldn’t resist the beckoning call of a mac-and-cheese dumpling. Ashley is sharing the recipe for those on her blog today, so make sure to go check it out!

Nutella S'mores Dumplings
Deep fried nutella s'mores dumplings stuffed with everyone's favorite chocolate hazelnut spread, sprinkled with a cinnamon graham cracker crumb crust and served with marshmallow fluff for dipping.
Yield: At least 2 dozen dumplings
  • Peanut oil, for deep frying
  • Nutella
  • Dumpling wrappers
  • 9 full graham cracker sheets, finely crushed
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Marshmallow fluff
Prepare oil and assemble dumplings:
  1. Heat several inches of peanut oil in a large, deep pot (preferably cast iron) to 325°F. While the oil is coming up to temperature, get a small bowl of water ready. Scoop a heaping teaspoon of the Nutella into a dumpling wrapper. Dip a finger in the water and run it around the perimeter of the dumpling wrapper. Fold it in half and press the edges firmly to seal around the filling. Set on a tray and repeat with remaining dumpling wrappers until you run out of wrappers or filling.
Deep-fry dumplings:
  1. Once the dumplings are ready and the oil has reached 325°F, carefully place 6 dumplings in the oil and fry until golden brown on both sides, flipping occasionally with a spider or metal tongs. Remove dumplings to a paper towel-lined tray that has been topped with a metal cooling rack. In a small bowl, stir together the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and cinnamon. Sprinkle over the dumplings while still warm. Repeat with remaining dumplings. Serve warm with the marshmallow fluff to dip in.

  2. June Burns says:

    That is true beauty. I never would have thought of trying this, but here it is. such a great idea! 😀

  3. These look amazing! Nutella and s’mores – definitely need to make these asap!

  4. These look incredible. I have leftover healthy nutella in my fridge and I am definitely making these with it.

  5. What a grand idea! I’m always for Nutella. These definitely look like the perfect share to every gathering.
    Have a great weekend Joanne!

  7. I’m breathing into a paper bag right now, girl. These. Look. Amazing. I hope the Nutella people find you and thank you for coming up with the best Nutella-inspired dessert ever!

  8. Erica says:

    Nutella s’mores! You can’t go wrong with that. I love the dumpling form too, I would probably eat like 20 of them in one sitting.

  9. Holy moly. I loved you anyway, but now I love you EVEN MORE! These are everything. I’m not a big deep fryer either (um…I would probably burn down my house), but I think exceptions need to be made!

  10. danielle says:

    ooh a dumpligpalooza sounds awesome. These on the other hand – very dangerous!

  11. Fry all the things!!! ok, those savory mac-and-cheese dumplings are ones that I can get behind. . yes, love it! will head over now! and love that you guys did sweet and savory!! Winning!

  12. YUM! These just look too good to be true hehe :). I am not a big fan of frying things but I would definitely not be able to resist these Nutella dumplings.

  13. I definitely don’t need any convincing to try these (or bribery to love you for making them cause I SO do) because I’m already halfway to the kitchen to make them 😀

  14. CakeSpy says:

    Let’s just get married already. <3

  15. Oh my goodness, Joanne! These dumpling are everything! Nutella s’mores is insanely good.

  16. Pam says:

    I have still never fried anything in a big pot of oil, but for these beauties, I might! It looks like you and Ashley had a fun and tasty time making these little gems. My kids would love them!

  17. Sues says:

    Seriously???? Most amazing idea!! These look absolutely glorious!

  18. elly says:

    Unfortunately I have had the burning hot oil-on-my-extremities situation occur, which makes me a wee bit nervous frying (probably a good thing, though). I can make an exception for these, being that I am s’mores obsessed. Have you seen that the new Starbucks frap is s’mores? I’m so screwed.

  19. I cannot with this one! Loving everything about it!!

  20. Heather says:

    We actually have a deep fryer that we break out very infrequently… so unhealthy, but some things are just meant to be fried. :p

  21. Agness says:

    I once made Nutella Brownies from Buns and it turned out to be super delicious. You keep inspiring me, girl! Yum, yum!

  22. I heart Ashley and I am SUPER stoked you had her on for today. PS- THESE ARE AMAZING!!!

  23. These really do look completely worth it!

  24. Lily Lau says:

    Ahhh so much nutella together is driving me crazy!! 😀

  25. Oooh “Dumplingpalooza in lieu of watching even a single second of the big game” is my kind of partay! Joanne – I have no words – cos I am drooling EVERYWHERE!

  26. Frying definitely seems like too dangerous an activity for me to be involved in. But, these also sound really good!

  27. Katie says:

    oh joanne, they just sound incredible!

  28. That marshmallow fluff and gooey nutella omg! My le creuset is about to meet some hot oil.

  29. You just had to open that dumpling and send me into a chocolate como. Do you know how long I’ve been on this page starring at that photo? No lie lol. Joanne, you have made me want to go out and get chocolate, and that’s exactly what I’m going to do. But I must make this when I have time. Glad I just followed you on social media.

  32. Kate says:

    This is a great way to eat a smore when you don’t have a campfire.

  33. Ala says:

    Hi Joanne! I forgive you. Really. If you send me a steaming hot batch of these dumplings, I promise I’ll forgive you even more 😉 I bookmarked this recipe on the spot – NICE.

  34. Are you kidding me with this? *faints*

  35. These sweet dumplings look droolworthy!

  36. Kelly says:

    Nutella S’mores dumplings are definitely worth a day-o-frying! Such a great idea! They look amazing!

  37. Johanna GGG says:

    oh that is a good reason to use the deep fryer – I want one though I am not sure I could be trusted with a whole batch of them! sounds like a fun dumpling day

    This is such a creative recipe! Who doesn’t love s’mores?

  40. Foodiewife says:

    Welcome to the Dark Side of deep frying. I don’t do it often (can we say “deep fried tempura”?) but dang, girl. Nutella and marshmallow fluff? Yeah, totally worth it.

  41. Reeni says:

    Love this twist on smores! I want to stuff all of them into my pie hole right now!

  42. There are times when deep frying is worth it, and this is one of them for sure 🙂 ps I’m going overseas on Thursday and won’t be able to visit while we are away

  43. mira says:

    These look fantastic! My husband will love them, we love Nutella 🙂 Pinned of course!

  44. Oooh, yum yum yum! I would definitely risk a bit of artery furring up for these! So what other scrumptious things can you fry up for us next?

  45. Sarah says:

    Oh my freaking god this looks like my dream come true. Love this recipe!

  46. Hotly Spiced says:

    I love the marshmallow dip! I’m quite sure we can’t buy that fluff here. These do look like Indian samosas but with a better filling! xx

  47. PINNED! My best friend and I grew up having s’mores for sleepovers. Now that I have started to learn to bake, I keep on thinking new ways to innovate our beloved overnight snack. Looks like I know what I’ll make next. 😉 Thank you so much for this!

  48. I love the nutella smores dumplings. Sometimes we just have to deep fry things and this one looks like it was the way to go.

  49. Beth says:

    This is everything I want ever.

  50. marcela says:

    These dumplings are gorgeous… I wish I could have one….
    I wish you a wonderful week, dear!

  51. Woa! These look absolutely divine. My hubby is Persian and grew up on Nutella (peanut butter was a strange, unappetizing thing for him when he moved to the states). I am 100% confident he would be all over these little lovelies.

  52. Asha says:

    Could not go wrong with these at all. Joanne, they are seriously amazing.

  53. grace says:

    this is a brilliant idea. using marshmallow fluff as a dip is extremely exciting to me. 🙂

  54. oooohhhhh my GAWD Joanne! These are like….epic. There aren”t enough words for how delicious these dumplings look! pinning!
