  1. So beautiful snack. I definitely love this with tropical fruits more than mixed vegetables.

    1. Ann, looks like u're gonna have fun with this!

  2. Shirley, I love that presentation drizzled with chocolate! Such a pretty dish and a surprise, too, with the fruit & spice filling -- but then, you're full of surprises. :) Checked out your wonton dessert, too -- oh my goodness, peanut butter, banana, chocolate & caramel? No wonder they're so yummy! Thanks for linking that, too!

    1. Kim, awesome! Those wonton are pretty cool, right? xoxo

  3. Me too. I much prefer tropical fruits than veggies cause I'm not really like to eat veggie one =P

  4. I like how Chef Martin Yan uses a small pot to do the deep frying. So economical and it takes a shorter time to heat up the oil too. The topical fruits spring roll looks delicious! Your wanton kisses is tempting too.

    1. DS, me too! Always wanted to try that but must get one first :)

  5. I have heard of spring rolls. But with fruits and fried!? thats new to me! Interesting!

  6. What a wonderful dessert! I've never thought of wrapping fruits, especially tropical fruits (only thing I've done is banana). I should give this a try - it looks yummy!

  7. oh what a beautiful presentation!

  8. Wow, beautiful dessert rolls!!! I love that chocolate design on the elegant!

    1. Liz, I'm sure u're gonna have fun with these rolls!
