    Delicious chocolate crepes with cherry filling make a lovely, romantic dessert that would be perfect for Valentine's Day. They could also be served as part of an elegant breakfast-in-bed or brunch. Enjoy!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    crepes

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine eggs, milk, vanilla, and melted butter and whisk well; combine flour, cocoa, sugar, and salt and add to wet mixture; whisk thoroughly or beat with an immersion blender until smooth; cover batter and refrigerate for one to two hours.
    2. 2
      Remove batter from refrigerator and stir; you may, if necessary, thin batter by adding a little additional milk or you may thicken it by adding a bit of flour; heat a non-stick skillet (I recommend a 10" omelette pan) to medium-high heat and add 1/2 teaspoon butter to it.
    3. 3
      Pour 1/4 cup of batter into skillet and tilt so that a thin layer of batter coats the pan bottom in an 8-inch circle; cook crepe for 30-60 seconds until it appears dry and is just beginning to brown at edges; carefully loosen edges and turn crepe over; cook second side for another 30-60 seconds.
    4. 4
      Continue cooking crepes, adding 1/2 teaspoon butter to the skillet before each one; stack finished crepes with waxed paper between them ~ You may refrigerate or freeze them for later use or serve immediately.
    5. 5
      To serve, place 2-3 tablespoons cherry pie filling across center of each crepe and roll tightly or fold crepe into quarters; place 2 filled crepes on each serving plate; garnish crepes with your choice of sweetened whipped cream, additional cherry pie filling, chocolate or cherry syrup, chocolate curls, and mint sprigs.
    6. 6
      NOTE: When garnishing my crepes I did not use chocolate syrup, but instead spooned a little cherry pie filling (no whole cherries) into a small plastic ziploc bag, snipped off its corner, and gently squeezed the filling through and onto my crepes.

      I am rating this recipe on the filling and assembly as I already had pre-made crepes on hand. This was very, very easy to make and a big hit with friends and family on World Cup Finals. I used my homemade chocolate syrup to drizzle over top the whipped cream and fresh mint cut from my container plant. We were all happy with the crepes and Italy's winning!
