Chocolate Cherry Crepes

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time30 mins
Resting time:2 hrs
Servings: 16 crepes

Ingredients

For the crepe batter:

  • 2 cups milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter unsalted, melted
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt

For the filling:

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 cups fresh black cherries pitted, halved

Instructions

  • In a pitcher for a blender, add all batter ingredients. Place top on pitcher and blend until completely mixed. Place in fridge to sit for 2 hours.
  • Once 2 hours have passed, remove from fridge and place a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Spray skillet with nonstick spray and with the skillet off the heat, spoon 1/4 cup of batter in the center. Working quickly, tilt the pan to spread the batter evenly to the edges of the pan. Place back on heat and cook for 1 minute. Flip and cook for another minute. Remove and place on plate while you make the rest of the crepes with the remaining batter.
  • Once all the batter has been used, let the crepes cool while you make the whipped cream. To make the whipped cream, add heavy whipping cream, almond extract, and ¼ cup of sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer. Using a beater attachment, whip on medium high until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  • Grab one crepe and spread on 1/4 cup of whipped cream into one even layer over the crepe. In one quarter of the crepe, add about 1/4 cup of cherry halves. Fold the crepe in half and then half again. Repeat with the rest of the crepes. Dust with powdered sugar and serve immediately.
