Chocolate Crepes

Why have boring basic crepes when you can punch them up with cocoa! Chocolate Crepes from #dietersdownfall.comChocolate Peanut Butter Crepe Cake with Aebleskivers – Day Two – Chocolate Crepes

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.

Warm and Chocolaty - These Chocolate Crepes are filled with a chocolate hazelnut spread. Yummy! from #dietersdownfall.comBut these Chocolate Crepes are anything but BORING!

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!

Chocolate Crepes are best served warm with a sweet filling of your choice. from #dietersdownfall.comFill these bad boys up with spreads, fruit, ice cream, chocolate, frosting, oh my – I want dessert again!

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!

Chocolate Crepes

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 2 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 16 - 18 crepes

Chocolate Crepes

Warm chocolate crepes with an ooey-gooey chocolate center.

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cup flour
  • 1/2 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.

Instructions

  • 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.

  1. I’ve never had chocolate crepes before, and I can’t wait to try this recipe. They look delicious!

    • Karyn Granrud Karyn Granrud says:

      They were good! The first side will get this nice coloring while the second side was shiny and not as pretty. Just fold that side in.

  2. These look absolutely amazing. I’m a little bit hungry for one right now! I’d love for you to stop by our Link It or Lump It party and share with everyone.

  3. *sigh* I wish I could have enough self control to eat things like this in moderation! They look SO flippin’ delicious, Karyn!

    • Karyn Granrud Karyn Granrud says:

      Believe it or not, I just had one crepe – an ugly one. And a bite of the cake I made with them… watch for the post tomorrow :)

  4. Gorgeous photos on this one, Karyn!

  5. really love it! cant wait to try doing this. thanks for sharing and more power to you. God bless.

  6. I was so intrigued by this photo…it almost looks like pieces of lace and I was wondering how you got this effect or is this just a byproduct of your non crepe frying pan? Looks terrific and with fruit and whipped cream – perhaps chocolate whipped cream? it would be superb! I shall try these

    • Karyn Granrud Karyn Granrud says:

      I thought it looked neat as well. I don’t know why that happened, but the top was very shiny and not very attractive. Fresh fruit and whipped cream would be great. I think anything that goes with chocolate would be great! Enjoy!

    Insteaf of whole milk could you use fat free and instead of butter could you use something less fat.

    • Karyn Granrud Karyn Granrud says:

      Honestly, this was the first time I ever made crepes. I’d suggest you find recipe that suites your dietary needs. When baking a cake I substitute apple sauce for butter or oil, but I don’t know how that would work in crepes. Sorry I’m not much help.
