I only made the filling for my pre-made crepes. I'm not sure if I did something wrong, but cooling the chocolate made it very hard to mix with the whipped cream. There was a 2-layer texture that didn't quite all mix together. Also, I was concerned it wouldn't cover all crepes, so I intervalled a raspberry filling. I loved the flavor of the chocolate, but I don't think it would have been sweet enough on its own, nor plentiful enough.
