Chocolate and Vanilla Crepes

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

I love crepes. One of the reasons I crepes, is that they work great for breakfast or for dessert. I have shared a couple of crepe recipes before, but I recently sampled another one from a friend. It tasted great.

So, I decided to take that recipe and change it up by making chocolate and vanilla crepes. I thought they would be perfect for Mother’s Day.

Crepes are truly simple to make but appear incredibly gourmet and will impress whoever you make them for. You can make them ahead of time and keep them in the fridge before serving. You can even freeze them.

The trick to making a crepe is swirling the pan and allowing the batter to coat the pan evenly.

You want the crepe to just start browning and then you turn it. I found it helps to use a silicone spatula to loosen the edges and turn the crepe. Then place the crepes in a stack with waxed paper or parchment paper layered between each one.

You could have a crepe bar for Mother’s Day breakfast or dessert. Serve the vanilla and chocolate crepes along with different fillings and fruit. Curds, mousse, Nutella, pie filling, and cream make great fillings.

You can place fruit inside or on top of the crepe. You can use fresh fruit or thaw frozen fruit. Berries work well and so do bananas. Last, you need toppings – this can include whipped cream, syrups, sauces, sprinkles, nuts, toasted coconut, etc.

Tomorrow, I will post a delicious filling recipe. Next week, I will share another recipe that you can also use as a filling.

It’s amazing! So be sure to check back. I have even given a crepe kit for Mother’s Day before and included everything for mom to enjoy them at home.

Here are some fillings you could include.

Think of crepes and a crepe bar for more than just Mother’s Day. They work well for Valentine’s, Easter, baby and bridal showers too!

  2. There are not any eggs listed in the vanilla recipe. We used the 2 that the chocolate said and we LOVED them!
