Recipe by Lightly Toasted
I found a similar recipe, but needed to adapt it more to our tastes. Frying the fruit filled "egg rolls" really makes the flavor of the fruit "POP" without letting the fruit get mushy. The sauce and pudding can be prepared ahead of time, and the fruit chopped up and mixed. But the final stage of frying the egg rolls should be done just before serving. Cook time is the time needed for the frying of the egg rolls and final assembly of the dessert. This makes a very elegant looking dessert
- 3⁄4 cup blueberries
- 3⁄4 cup raspberries
- 3⁄4 cup chopped strawberry, chopped to the same size as the blueberries and raspberries for easy of making egg rolls

For the sauce
