Can you believe that it’s almost Valentine’s day? I wasn’t originally going to share any Valentine’s posts – I was just so uninspired! Well at least until I looked at the rapidly approaching 30x30 deadline and decided to finally tackle those crepes!
Valentines Day is totally the perfect day for crepes. And strawberries are perfect for chocolate. Therefore, these are the perfect crepes for someone you love!
Strawberry and Chocolate Crepes
Crepes (recipe below)
Brownie Batter filling (recipe below)
1 lb strawberries, sliced
Put the filling into piping bag (or ziplock with one corner cut). Pipe a generous line of filling into the center of each crepe and top with sliced strawberries. Roll the crepe, then dust with powdered sugar and drizzle with chocolate sauce. Top with a heart shaped strawberry.
Makes about 12 crepes

2 large eggs
¾ cup lowfat milk
½ cup water
1 cup flour
1 tbsp powdered sugar
3 tbsp butter, melted
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend for 10 seconds. Place the batter in the refrigerator for 1 hour to allow the bubbles to dissipate. The batter can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours.
Heat a medium sized non stick skillet over medium-high heat, adjusting the heat down as you cook, as necessary. Spray the pan lightly with cooking spray. Pour approximately 1 ounce of batter (using more or less to just coat the entire bottom of the pan). Gently swirl the pan to coat evenly. Cook the crepe for 30 seconds, then flip it and cook for another 10 seconds. Lay the crepes flat to cool. Repeat with the remaining crepe batter.
