Let me start off by saying...these are addictive!!!

You get a bite of brown sugar carrot puree and cheesecake all at once...

If you've ever gone to a Chinese restaurant and had those sweetened cream cheese rangoon - you will love these!

The cheesecake and carrot worked really well together. It's a very unexpected combination.

How to Make Carrot Cheesecake Bites

Step-by-Step

  1. Dice carrots, 1/4 inch thick rounds.
  2. In a large sauce pan or dutch oven add carrots. Cover with water and lid. Bring to a boil. Boil 15 minutes or until carrots are tender.
  3. Drain carrots. Add carrots, butter, vanilla, and brown sugar to food processor. Pulse until creamy and thick.
  4. In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, vanilla, and sugar. Mix on medium speed until creamy and well combined.
  5. Heat deep fryer to 350 degrees while preparing your carrot cheesecake bites.

    In the center of your wonton squares, add 1/4 teaspoon of each filling. Brush with egg wash mixture around edges.
  6. Fold over to form triangles. Crimp edges with a fork. Make sure they are well secured to prevent filling from leaking while deep frying.
  7. Add to deep fryer, 4 at a time. These cook very quickly 2 to 3 minutes. Turn during cooking.
  8. Drain on paper towels and allow to cool 5 minutes before serving.
  9. Serve with a dusting of powdered sugar if desired. Enjoy!
