Directions for: Chocolate Crepes


Chocolate Crepes

1 Tbsp butter

1-1/2 ounces/40 g chocolate

1 cup milk

2 eggs

¼ cup sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup flour

Chocolate Sauce

1 cup whipping cream

8 oz dark chocolate, finely chopped


Chocolate Crepes

1. Put the butter, chocolate, and milk in a saucepan and heat to melt. Beat the eggs with the sugar in a bowl. Add the vanilla, then the flour. Beat in the chocolate mixture. Strain into a jug and let sit half an hour. Add more milk or water if necessary to give the consistency of thin cream. Fry the crêpes, using a bit of oil if you don’t have a no-stick pan.

2. Fill the crêpes with sliced banana or strawberries and sweetened, cinnamon-flecked whipped cream. Look best in triangle. Drizzle chocolate sauce over top.

Chocolate Sauce

1. Put the cream and chocolate together in a saucepan and heat, gently, until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is very smooth. Thin, as needed with more cream. Serve hot.
