Chocolate 'N Peach Dumpling

Join the Dumpling Diva as she once again masters and teaches the art of cooking.

Want to master it yourself?
You can use one not-too-ripe peach, cut up in 1 1/2 inch pieces
(1 good size peach can make up to 11 dumplings)
Marinate in peach brandy (or some vodka) with 1 tblsp of sugar
Splash of vanilla for couple of hours, then take the peach pieces out
Keep the marinade to create a Fab Summer Cocktail later!

Get wonton skins,
Put 1 skin down & put a teaspoon of dark chocolate chips or ganache down,
Then pile 3 pieces of marinated peach on top of the dumpling skin
Seal all 4 sides of the dumpling skin with water to form tiny package...
You'll probably get at least 8 dumplings.

Heat thoroughly on skillet with a drop of light oil and place dumplings on pan surface
Lower flame & after few seconds add a tblsp of water
Cover with lid so steam will cook...
(This takes no more then 3 minutes the dumpling skin should be opaque on top & chocolate inside melted.)

Serve with orange gelato.

Now pour some of the marinade into a champagne glass and top with Cava or Prosecco.

PS: There will be no leftovers.
