Chocolate crepes make for a beautiful breakfast or dessert, however, making them can be tiresome. Delish US posted an online recipe for “Easy Crêpes”, in short, it’s far from easy but is well worth the effort. It takes about 40-45 minutes to prepare this recipe, although almost half of it is just letting the batter sit. The slightest issue in the batter could cause issues when cooking the crepes. Make sure to use the right proportions and mix the batter extremely well to get rid of any and all clumps, similar to making pancake batter. Lightly greasing the skillet and using the proper temperature is also crucial to get a nice color. Do not raise the temperature above medium. It’s also helpful to start off with a low temperature when swirling the batter, failing to do so will cause it to solidify quickly, which could cause parts of the crepe to be thicker than others as well as an odd shape. After swirling your pancake leave it for 2 minutes before touching it as it will likely improve its appearance and texture. To finish it off, fill it with nutella and anything else that comes to mind.
