I Need a Snack, or Dessert

Now playing: Yuppie Pricks - New Rolls
via FoxyTunes

As promised, more ideas for using spring roll wrappers. A healthy snack, or it can be used for dessert.

Rice Pudding Crystal Rolls with Tropical Fruit Salsa


2 cups rice pudding (make your own)
8 oz. cream cheese
1 vanilla pod
mint leaves (approx. 48)

1 small pineapple
2 small mangoes
2 kiwi
2 tsp. mirin
1 tsp. rice wine vinegar
2 tbsp. honey

12 spring roll wrappers

Review the relevant steps in the process here:

Prepare the salsa by small dicing the fruit and mixing it with Mirin, rice wine vinegar and honey. Set aside in the refrigerator.

Warm the cream cheese and fold into the rice pudding. Scrape the vanilla pod and fold in the pudding. Set aside in refrigerator until chilled.

Set up your rolling mise en place as in the above link.

On the moistened spring roll place two mint leaves and top with 2 1/2 large spoonfuls of pudding. Then, one final mint leaf. Roll per instructions and repeat.

Serve cold with the fruit salsa.
