Recipe: Spicy Chocolate Crepes #easybreakfastrecipe

On weekends we like to forgo the cereal and put a little more effort into a home-cooked breakfast. This weekend I woke up to my husband's spicy chocolate crepes! Crepes are his specialty and I never get tired of them, mostly because you can put so many different filling inside to make everyone happy. Crepes may sound difficult to make, but they're actually pretty simple. Check out the recipe below.
Crepe Ingredients:
  • 1 c flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 c water
  • 1/2 c milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp butter

Hot Chocolate Sauce Ingredients:
  1. 1/4 cup chocolate syrup
  2. 1/4 teaspoon chili powder or cayenne pepper

Garnish (optional):
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
  • blue berries
  • strawberries
  • powdered sugar

  1. Heat frying pan, medium to medium high heat. After it's warmed up, either add a dollop of oil or butter, coating the bottom evenly.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs.
  3. Add in water, milk, butter and salt.  
  4. Gradually add in the flour as you continue to whisk it smooth.
  5. Pour a 1/4 cup of batter and twirl around the pan to evenly coat the bottom.
  6. It takes roughly 2 minutes for the crepe to cook on one side (the top will bubble a bit and the bottom will be light brown). 
  7. While the crepe is cooking, combine the chocolate syrup and chili powder in a small bowl, mixing thoroughly. 
  8. Flip with a spatula and cook another 1 to 2 minutes.
  9. Plate the crepe and spread a thin layer of spicy chocoloate syrup on top.
  10. Fold the crepe over, drizzling additional syrup over it. 
  11. Add additional garnish as desired, and serve!
