SIMPLE CHOCOLATE CREPES

I love chocolate and if I could eat
it every day I swear I would. Crepes on the other hand I love too and could eat
every second if I could. So put chocolate and crepes in the same sentence and
you have me gone into foodie paradise. These very easy chocolate crepes are
decadent and can be served up as a dessert, for breakfast or even brunch, every
minute of the day if you will! As much as you can devour these delicious
chocolate crepes on their own, you can add extra toppings to make them that
much extra. Toppings include fresh fruit, whipped cream, cream cheese, ice
cream, dulce de leche sauce for a sweet taste. 
You can decide to pair the topping options like using peanut butter and bananas,
whipped cream and strawberries, jam and peanut butter or even apples and honey.
 When it comes to the batter since the
crepes are so thin you want a super smooth chocolate batter. The pan should be
hot so that they cook quickly enough. Add enough batter to cover the bottom of
the pan completely so that the crepes are not heavy. I love how light and airy
these chocolate crepes turned out and I finished a whole batch without
blinking! That’s how good these are and you will definitely be making them on a
daily basis, not only for special occasions but just because.

INGREDIENTS

2 Tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

1/4 Cup Sugar

¼ Teaspoon Baking Powder

METHOD

Sift flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and unsweetened cocoa powder

Sifting will make the batter airy and will remove any lumps from the sugar and cocoa powder

Add in the egg

The egg helps in binding the ingredients together and gives the crepes a soft texture and delicious taste

Add the vegetable oil

Pour in the milk

Start mixing the chocolate crepes batter

Mix the dry and wet ingredients until well combined and there is no flour on the sides or the bottom of the bowl

This is the consistency you want for your chocolate crepes

Take a ladleful or 1/4 cup of the chocolate crepes batter

Pour the batter on a lightly buttered non stick pan

Cook the chocolate crepes on medium heat until bubble form at the top and the top appears glossy or shiny

Flip the chocolate crepe and cook the second side until golden brown

Set the chocolate crepes on a plate lined with kitchen towel to keep warm as you finish the rest of the batter

Serve immediately with toppings of your choice and accompanied by a drink or can be eaten as a snack
