Hey everyone! It’s Ashley here from The Recipe Rebel and I’m back with an easy but decadent recipe to take you through your Spring brunches and Mother’s Day dinners.

I love crepes because they can just as easily be breakfast or dessert, depending on how you fill them.

You can be somewhat responsible, and fill them with loads of fresh fruit and Greek yogurt, or peanut butter and sliced bananas. You’re getting some protein so you can make it through the day and a boost of fiber and nutrients from the fresh fruit.

But if you want to get really indulgent, you can serve them with cherry pie filling and sweetened cream cheese for a black forest version, or maybe spread a little Nutella in there and top with fresh strawberries and whipped cream. An easy (and customizable!) dessert that you can make ahead of time.

The batter for these chocolate crepes is made right in the blender, and then you can pour it right out onto your hot pan. There’s little mess and even the kids can help prepare them!

If you have leftover crepes, they reheat perfectly the next day and they’re great cold as well! You can use them to make a crepe cake, or my kids love to have them for lunch rolled up with peanut butter and banana.

To make perfect crepes, be sure that your pan is very hot, and pour just enough batter on the pan that it will coat the bottom completely before it sets. You’ll need to tilt the pan quickly but carefully to distribute the batter, and the first few crepes might not be your best looking, but they will still taste incredible!
