Gently mix to combine all ingredients, at this point the mixture may be stored in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours, covered.

Preheat your oven to 350°.

Spray one or two 12-cup mini-muffin tin(s) with non-stick or oil spray and gently press your wonton wrapper into the tin, gently pushing and folding down the edges of the wonton wrappers onto themselves, but allowing for a nice pocket.

Bake, unfilled for 5 minutes until edges are lightly browned, about 7 minutes.

Wrappers may be used and filled at once or if making ahead, wrappers may be stored once cooled in a tightly covered container at room temperature for up to 24 hours; just return them to the muffin tin(s) before proceeding with filling.


When ready to assemble; preheat oven (if you made ahead) to 350°. Fill each cup with a heaping teaspoon of the artichoke mixture.
