Real Food Chocolate Filled Crepes

A hot crepe filled with warm chocolate pudding. Mmmm it doesn’t get any better than that. This  is surprising easy to make, and a very large batch can be made.

Real Food Chocolate Pudding

1/3 cup honey

4 Tbsp arrowroot powder (or organic corn starch)

2 Tbsp cocoa powder

2 cups raw milk (you can also use coconut milk)

1 tsp homemade vanilla extract

In a 3-4 quart saucepan whisk together the arrowroot powder, cocoa and milk. Turn on the heat to medium and stir in the honey. Continue to stir until pudding thickens. Turn off heat and stir in vanilla. Set this pan aside while you make the crepes.

Real Food Crepes

This is a double recipe and makes 16 large 12″ crepes

6 eggs (from the happiest hens you can find)

2 cups flour

1 1/2 cups water

2 cups milk

2 Tbsp raw honey

2 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp salt

Lots of butter or coconut oil for frying

  • Mix ingredients together in a blender or with a whisk and let stand for 10-15 minutes. Heat a 12″ skillet to medium high heat. Melt 1 tsp butter in pan.
  • Pour 1/3 cup of batter into pan. Tilt pan to spread batter all around.
  • Immediately take your spatula and gently lift all around the edges of the crepe. This helps it from sticking, when it’s time to flip.
  • Cook for one minute. You will notice it starting to firm up, and you will see very small bubbles forming.
  • Flip over and cook for 1 minute.
  • Transfer to a plate and spread a thin 1-2 Tbsp of chocolate pudding onto crepe. Roll up and serve.
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar if you’re trying to impress someone
  • The first crepe always gets mangled. And the cook gets to eat it, so nanner nanner 🙂

These are excellent warm, and just as excellent the next day cold.

I have made many different variations of crepes, and have come to the conclusion that everything tastes amazing when rolled up in these delicate thin pancake-like creations. I have tried:

  • Smoked Salmon and Gouda Cheese
  • Strawberries and whipped cream
  • Blueberries and cream cheese
  • Bacon and Smoked cheese
  • Almond butter and honey
  • Ham and green peppers
  • Grilled pumpkin and cinnamon
  • Carmelized onion, tomato and swiss cheese
  • Roasted eggplant and mushrooms
  • Banana slices and yogurt
  • Cooked apples and nutmeg

What are your ideas?

    The family loves crepes. I often fill them with a chicken-leek-mushroom mixture with a white sauce or gruyere sauce, bake in oven until lightly browned and bubbly. But I could probably fill them with anything and they’d eat them.

    I had an old friend who was from Oklahoma and use to make chocolate gravy to go over biscuits. This reminds me of that… oh yum, I’m a major chocolate lover 😀
