Red and Yellow Fruit Salad in Cinnamon Sugar WonTon Cups

I guess you could say I am on a WonTon Cup kick. I had some wonton wrappers left in the fridge and the idea came to me for a fruit salad cup. I cut up all my fresh fruit and realized all the fruit I had was red and yellow, hence the name. You could really use any fruit that you wanted to. I made my WonTon cups with cinnamon-sugar (watch everyone in the house- these will get swiped and eaten without anything in them), and filled them with this delicious salad. We had some as a afternoon snack and some with dinner. This would also be a great appetizer. It would brighten up any table with all the beautiful colors that are included in this salad.

Red and Yellow Fruit Salad in Cinnamon Sugar WonTon Cups by Mary Ann
1 small red apple, cut into slices and then in pieces
1 cup chopped, fresh strawberries
1/2 red grapes, cut in quarters
pomegranate seeds
1 cup fresh pinapple, cut in cubes
1 mango, cut into cubes
* Cinnamon-Sugar WonTon Cups
Combine all fruit in a bowl. Make Cinnamon-Sugar WonTon cups and fill with fruit salad.

*Cinnamon-Sugar WonTon Cups
12 wonton wrappers
cinnamon-sugar mixture
cooking spray
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray regular muffin tin or mini-muffin tin with cooking spray. Place one wonton wrapper over each cavity of muffin tin. Spray wonton wrappers with cooking spray. Generously sprinkle cinnamon-sugar mixture over wonton wrappers, so that they are covered. Press wonton wrappers down into cavity of muffin tin, so wonton makes a cup. Bake for 5-6 minutes, or until golden brown on edges and crispy. Let cool for a few minutes. Fill with fruit salad.
You can also store the pre-made cups, in a airtight container, for 4-5 days.

Wontons are very hard to come by in the sticks where I live, but I bet little filo baskets would be just as tasty. Your fruit salad looks fabulous!!
