Chocolate Crepes


Chocolate Crepe Batter
(Makes about 8-10 crepes, depending on size)

Ingredients:

4 eggs
4 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
1-1/2 cups chocolate powder (We use Rolands)

Crepe filling

Ingredients:

Nutella
Powdered sugar
Whipped cream
Fresh berries


Directions:

Combine eggs, milk, salt, sugar, chocolate powder and vanilla extract in a large container. Whisk to combine.

Continue to whisk while slowly adding the flour in increments. Finish with the butter and pass through a china cap.

(Note: This receipe makes enough batter for about 8-10 crepes. We try to work as quickly as possible with the chocolate crepes, as they tend to cook a bit faster and crisp up quickly.)

Ladle 6 ounces of the batter onto your crepe machine or pan and spread evenly. Cook the first side for a few seconds, then flip it over to cook the other. Allow that to cook for a few seconds longer.

Fold the crepe into a half moon, spread the nutella evenly over the crepe and fold into thirds.

Served with whipped cream, powdered sugar and fresh berries.
