These savory cupcakes are perfect St. Patrick's Day nom, wrapped up in a crunchy wonton shell.
Savory cupcakes and sweet, boozy dipping sauce for the win!
These Irish-inspired wonton cupcakes with a sweet Guinness dipping sauce on the side are a great idea for St. Paddy’s Day – whether for a big party or a party of one on the couch/House of Cards marathon. They’re a variation of Christy’s oh-so-famous (and oh-so-tasty) lasagna cupcakes and all I have to say is: Ladies and gents, prepare ye-selves for a lot of deliciousness.
First, make the dipping sauce. It’s basically a reduction of Guinness and brown sugar, and it turns into tasty magic.
While the sauce is a-simmerin’ on the stove, make the wonton cupcakes. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin, chop up some corned beef, shred some Swiss cheese and get ready to roll.
Place a wonton wrapper in the bottom of each greased muffin cup, then top with a tablespoon of corned beef and shredded cheese. Top that with another wonton wrapper, more corned beef, a tablespoon of sauerkraut and more shredded cheese. Bake it all up until the cheese is melted and the wontons are crisp and deep golden brown.
Just like theeeeeeeeeeeese. Yes.
Sprinkle the cupcakes with chopped chives and serve immediately with the boozy-sweet reduction on the side. Blimey, these are good!
Who needs a pot of gold when you have these babies? (OK OK, a pot of gold would be nice, too.)
