  • Milk: I like to use 2% to help give the crepes a bit of creaminess but still keep it light.
  • Eggs: These help to make the crepes airy.
  • Butter: The fat from the butter helps to add texture and richness.
  • Sugar: A little bit of granulated sugar helps sweeten the cocoa powder.
  • Vanilla: This elevates the cocoa powder and brings out the chocolate tones.
  • Salt: A little bit goes a long way in enhancing flavors.
  • Flour: All-purpose flour is the foundation for the structure of the crepe.

Best Pan for Crepes

Crepes may seem intimidating to make, but I promise they’re not! One of the main keys to making the perfect crepes is the pan that you use. You’ll want to make sure your frying pan is nonstick and is about 8-inches. The batter will fill all the way to the edges of the pan, making the perfect circular size.

I usually use a rubber spatula to flip them, but you could try using one of these fancy crepe turners from Amazon as well. :)

How to Make Chocolate Crepes

Just two steps and a few minutes to make an indulgent treat any night of the week.

Mixing chocolate crepe batter in blender.
  1. Blend. Combine ingredients in a blender and pulse until batter is smooth (about 15-20 seconds).
  2. Cook. Spray non-stick cooking spray onto a 8-inch frying pan. Pour 1/4 cup batter into pan and cook over medium-low heat. Turn pan immediately from side to side to form an even circle. Cook for about 1-2 minutes per side, or until lightly browned.
  3. Serve. Remove from heat and stack until ready to serve. Add on toppings and enjoy!

Favorite Fillings

I like to fold my chocolate crepes over into triangle shapes and then stack them together on the plate. Then I add on my favorite toppings like fresh berries and whipped cream. You could also fill the center of each crepe with the toppings and roll them up like a burrito.

Tips for the Best Results

  • Use a nonstick pan. The type of pan you use makes all the difference. Make sure you’re using a nonstick pan and don’t forget to spray it with nonstick spray each time before adding the batter. You’ll be able to flip them perfectly without any sticking.
  • Make sure batter is smooth. Because the crepes are so thin, you want the batter to be completely smooth. Blend it together on high for about 15 to 20 seconds. If you can still see a few lumps, blend for another 5 to 10 seconds until smooth.
  • Chill the batter. I highly recommend chilling the crepe batter for at least 15 to 30 minutes (or even overnight). This helps the liquid absorb into the flour and relaxes the gluten, resulting in a better consistency.

Recipe FAQs

Can I make these chocolate crepes ahead of time?

Absolutely! The crepe batter can be made up to 24 hours in advance and stored in the fridge until you’re ready to cook. If you’ve already made the crepes, they can be made up to 3 days in advance and then warmed through just before serving.

Is crepe batter the same as pancake batter?

They use several of the same ingredients, but crepe batter is much thinner and doesn’t use any leavening agents (baking powder or baking soda), which means they are much flatter.

What type of flour is the best for making crepes?

All-purpose or whole wheat flour both work well for crepes. Gluten-free buckwheat flours are also a great option. It’s the foundation of the crepe, so you want flour that will hold its structure but not weigh it down.

Storing and Freezing

If there are any leftovers, add them to a zip top bag and layer parchment or wax paper in between (so that they don’t stick together). Then place the crepes in the fridge until ready to serve. They also freeze really well, so you could easily double the batch and stick half in the freezer. They’ll last in the freezer for a couple of months. Then simply reheat in the microwave or in a skillet until warm.
