  1. Fixed these guys last night. Good stuff! Quite simple to do. I also tried using granulated sugar and cinnamon as well as the powdered sugar. All were equally good.

  2. Servings: About 80 PREPARATION: Cut each won ton wrapper into 2 rectangles. Lay one rectangle on top of the other to form a double thickness. Make three 1/2-inch slits in the center, lengthwise. To form a bow, pull one end through the middle slit.

  3. COOKING: Deep fry butterflies until golden, about 1 minute or less.

  4. Drain on paper towel. Sift powdered sugar over both sides. Cool.

  5. DO-AHEAD NOTES: These keep several weeks in air-tight containers. [Fat chance! They didn't even make it through the next day! S.C.]

  6. COMMENTS: These can also be made from egg roll wrappers but they’re three times as large. I prefer using won ton wrappers because I think their mini size makes them more attractive.
