Frozen Chocolate Crêpes
With Lent closing in on us, and my high schooler vowing to give up sweets till Easter, I knew I’d have to come up with a decadent dessert for Fat Tuesday. My friend, Lynn, shared an incredibly delicious recipe for frozen chocolate crepes years back, and it was high time to make this stunning treat.
I grew up making and eating fruit and whipped cream filled crêpes for many weekend breakfasts, but married a guy who prefers the thicker, traditional pancakes. So when I mentioned this dessert to my youngest, he looked at me and questioned, “crêpes?” I knew this culinary gap needed to be remedied!
These frozen chocolate crêpes are mixed in a blender which makes them super easy to pour into your crêpe pan to cook. Blender pancakes take only seconds to combine!
Note that the first crêpe, like the first pancake, is often your test version and isn’t worth saving. This recipe should make 12 8-inch crêpes, though, so one for practice isn’t a problem.
Resting the batter helps the flour to absorb any liquid and thicken along with letting any gluten formation tone down. Less gluten results in more tender crêpes.[tasty-recipe id=”58311″]
