So far, we’ve made cookies, a cocktail, and candy. I think we need to add an appetizer to this year’s 12 Days of Christmas. Welcome to Day 8!

Artichoke Wonton Wrappers |

For as long as I can remember, Christmas Eve has been celebrated at my mom’s house. Except for the three years I lived in Philadelphia, I’ve always spent the evening with my family, and it’s something I’ve come to look forward to year after year.

On Christmas Eve my mom typically serves a ridiculous number of appetizers. Everyone comes over after church, we snack and chat, open a few presents, and snack some more. She usually asks what treats she should make for the evening, and almost without fail, I request these Artichoke Wonton Wrappers.

I’m not sure what it is about them, but they are close to the top of my list of favorite bite-sized treats. Until creating this post, I’d actually never made them.

It turns out, the recipe is pretty simple. Pre-made wonton wrappers are tucked into a mini muffin pan, filled with a delicious mixture of artichoke hearts, veggies, and Parmesan cheese, and then baked in the oven. That’s it!

The resulting appetizers are warm, packed with flavor and even a bit of crunch thanks to the baked wontons. What more could you want? If you give these a try, I’m sure you’ll see why I like them so much.

Let me walk you through the recipe.

Artichoke Wonton Wrappers

Makes 24

Here's what you will need:
24 small wonton wrappers
1 jar (12 ounce) quartered and marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup sliced pitted black olives, chopped
1/4 cup red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup mayonnaise
24 small wonton wrappers

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium-sized bowl, stir together the artichoke hearts, Parmesan cheese, garlic, black olives, red bell pepper, and mayonnaise until well combined. Set aside.

Spray the cups in a mini muffin pan with oil. Then, gently press one wonton wrapper into each cup. Evenly fill the wonton wrappers with the artichoke mixture.

Bake for 12-14 minutes or until the wonton wrappers are just browned and the artichoke mixture is bubbly. Serve warm.

Pretty simple, right? Not only do these pack a flavor punch, but the use of the wonton wrappers make them seem extra fancy. Your guests will think you spent a lot more time in the kitchen than you did. Sneaky. Sneaky.

    My two 15 year old daughters and I made these and they were a big hit with my folks who are 85 and 87. If you can chop ingredients into tiny pieces, you can make these. Thank you so much for your great recipes. These were the big hit of Christmas Eve dinner.

    These look wonderful. Have you tried them with crab or any kind of seafood? Would that go with the artichoke do you think. Meanwhile I must give this a try
