Edible Origami {My Hungry Scientist}

The Precise Kitchen Elf's second project from The Hungry Scientist Handbook: Electric Birthday Cakes,Edible Origami, and Other DIY Projects for Techies, Tinkerers, and Foodies by Patrick Buckley and Lily Binns: Edible Origami!

There is no real recipe. But here's the process...

Fold wonton wrappers into whatever origami shapes you want. We did frogs, cranes, airplanes, and snails.


Lay your origami on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray the pieces with cooking oil. We used olive oil.

Bake until crisped and browned. The thinner pieces were done in 12-15 minutes. The thicker folded pieces took an additional 5 minutes. Keep a close eye so that they do not burn.

Sprinkle with salt. Eat and enjoy!!
