Happy New Year!!
Did you party like a Rock Star and have an amazing night? I used to go out and freeze my butt off and watch fireworks and drink too much and party with my friends… Now I’m a Mom.
I’m home with my daughter while my husband is out flying all over creation. It’s just the two the us watching movies and chillin’ out. So not exciting.
I got an old crepe pan from my MIL, but ended up making these in my frying pan. I just could not get the hang of using the crepe pan. Oh well, in the fry pan worked great, so I don’t see a huge need to have another specialty pan in my collection.
The great thing about crepes is that just about ANYTHING goes with them. Since this is a dessert blog, I took them up a notch by making them Chocolate. Then I filled them with a Chocolate Hazelnut Spread. I was wishing I had some strawberries to go with them, but I didn’t have any fruit in the house… and I should have made some whipped cream… Oh my! That would have been great!
This was another first for me, but I don’t think it’ll be the last time I make them. With so many combinations, I’ve got to make them again!
Serves: 16 - 18 crepes
- 4 eggs
- 1½ cups whole milk
- 1 cup water
- 2 cup flour
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- 6 tablespoons melted butter
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- Your favorite Chocolate Flavor Accessory - Nutella, Chocolate Spread, Fresh Strawberries, Ice Cream, Whipped Cream, Caramel, etc.
- In a large bowl, mix all of the ingredients. Mix thoroughly to avoid any flour lumps (this was difficult for me; next time I'll use the mixer). Place the crepe batter in the refrigerator to chill for one hour.
- Over medium-low heat, warm a non-stick skillet and add a little butter to coat the bottom and sides of the skillet. Pour 4 Tablespoons of batter into the pan and quickly swirl the batter around the skillet to form an even, round crepe. I found it best to add the batter to the center of the pan and not around the pan. Cook for 45 seconds, loosening the edges, then flip the crepe and cook for about 15 seconds. Transfer them to a flat surface. Layer parchment paper between each crepe to keep them from sticking together.
- They should stay warm with each new crepe added or you can place them into a warm oven to hold over like you would pancakes.
- Fill the crepes with your favorite filling and fold kinda like a burrito or into quarters like I did. Drizzle chocolate syrup on top or add some whipped cream. It's up to you to make them your way. I was happy with them just like this.
