Chocolate Strawberry Crepes

Nutella Strawberry Crepes
Happy Valentine's Day a day late!  I'm pretty excited to share this recipe with you because it was my first attempt at making crepes.  They always looked scary to me - so light and delicate but they are very easy to make.  Then the fun part is trying to decide what to put in them - Nutella, Cool Whip and Strawberries seemed like a good choice.  A light dusting of cocoa and a drizzle of caramel finished it off!

Recipe Source:  Semi-Original inspired by Sandra Lee


I must confess though I made these today and the DIY Guy isn't even home - he is ice fishing.  But I will make him some when he gets home on Sunday.... and hopefully his cold will be gone and he will be feeling better!

Nutella Strawberry Ingredients:

Crepes:
-1/2 cup flour
-1 egg
-1/4 cup water
-1/4 cup milk
-1/8 tsp salt
-1 tbl melted butter

 Crepe filling:
-Nutella
-sliced strawberries
-cool whip
-caramel sauce
-cocoa

Preparation:
For crepes – whisk together flour and egg then gradually whisk in milk and water. Add salt and butter and beat until smooth. Heat a 8-9” frying pan that has been lightly oiled (A nonstick pan works best) over medium high heat. Pour ¼ cup of batter in pan and tilt pan until batter is to edge. Cook crepe for about 2 minutes until the bottom is light brown. Turn and cook other side

To assemble – place about 1 ½ T of nutella on crepe, then about 1 ½ T cool whip. Top with strawberries and roll up. Drizzle with caramel sauce and dust with cocoa.

  8. This is such a great idea. I think I could make ahead and freeze between wax paper, and when I get company, Voila! I am a star. Just kidding about that star thing. I found you because Yvonne from Stone Gable featured you. I think she made a wise choice.
