Add mushrooms, bean threads, onion, carrot, bean sprouts, black pepper, and fish sauce to pork mixture; mix well. Set mixture aside for 15 minutes to allow flavors of ingredients to blend. Dilute sugar in lukewarm water. Place rice paper on a flat surface and brush with water until it is pliable. Place 2 teaspoonfuls of filling. Fold the right side over to enclose filling, then fold over left side. Continue to roll, then seal. Heat oil for deep frying to 375xF.
