Cheese "Candies"

Think of these "candies" as crispy little wontons filled with cheesy goodness.


  • 2 slices ham
  • 1 sheet of seaweed
  • 4 spring roll wrappers, each cut into 4 pieces
  • 4 string cheese sticks, each cut into 4 pieces
  • Water-soluble potato starch


  1. Cut the seaweed into stripe and dot patterns.
  2. Cut small circles out of one slice of ham with the end of a pastry bag tip. Cut the other slice into thin strips.
  3. Affix seaweed and ham cutouts to the cheese pieces.
  4. Wrap each cheese piece in a spring roll wrapper. Dip a finger in water and rub on each end of the wrapper, then twist to make wrapped candy shapes.
  5. In a frying pan, heat oil to 340 degrees F. Fry candies in oil until light brown, then transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil. Allow to cool, then enjoy!
