Ingredients List:

  • Pancake mix
  • Flour
  • Egg
  • Water
  • Oil
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Red food coloring
  • Cream cheese
  • Powdered sugar
  • Melted chocolate chips or chocolate syrup

Pancake Mix: I love Krusteav mixes. However, you can use your favorite! You will only need a small amount.

Oil: Use a neutral tasting oil. Canola, sunflower or vegetable oil will all work.

Food Coloring: A gel or paste variety of food coloring will give you a better color and you will have to use less of it, than the liquid stuff. See the recipe card for the brand I like.

Chocolate: You can either melt about 1/4-1/2 cup of chocolate chips until smooth or if you have any chocolate syrup on hand, you can also use that.

How to Make:

  • In a bowl, whisk together pancake mix, flour and cocoa. Add in egg, water, oil and food coloring. Mix unit fully combined and smooth.
  • Preheat a medium size frying pan over medium heat. Add a teaspoon of oil and brush the pan to coat.
  • Then, take about 1/4 cup of your batter pour it onto the heated pan.
  • Tilt the pan gently to evenly coat it with the batter. It will be thin.
  • Next cook it for just a minute ( or until it’s lightly set on the sides), then, flip it. Again, cook the other side for just a minute or so. It is thin, so, it won’t take long to cook.
  • Prepare the filling. Start with 3/4 cup of powdered sugar and taste it. If you prefer it a bit more sweet, add in more powdered sugar. I don’t recommend using over an extra 1/4 cup.
  • Then, fill the crepes with cream cheese mixture and roll them up.
  • Serve them with a dusting of powdered sugar and drizzle of chocolate.
