Use this crepe for an elegant easy dessert. Fill the crepe with whipped cream, fresh strawberries (or other fresh fruit), add some chocolate curls and there you are. Make these in advance - make the batter the night before and have it ready when you want to make them or better yet cook the crepes have wax paper between them, wrap in plastic wrap the foil and freeze them. They are good for 5 months.

Bergy, thank you for helping me rediscover a favourite recipe! We used to make chocolate crepes all the time until I lost my recipe card. These little gems have now filled the gap in my collection and they are oh so yummmmmy! We have eaten them several times with ice cream but they are also good with fresh fruit piled on top. They are very easy and quick to make as well.
Very yummy! I had never made crepes before but decided to take these to a family potluck. I filled them with strawberries that had been tossed with sugar and chilled over night. We topped them with cool whip. They were a huge hit. Even my mom, who doesn't like anything that anyone else makes, loved them and had seconds. Thanks for the great recipe.
OMG (as the kids say) I made these for a staff breakfast and boy, did they go. I added a pinch of salt and a dash of almond flavoring. Easy to get out of pan & cool on cake rack. By the end of breakfast we were out of fruit so we stuffed with the cream cheese left over from bagels & drizzled with choc. sauce.
