I’ve been hunting for a new tradition for our Family Valentine’s Dinner. When I saw this gorgeous red crepe on pinterest, I knew I had found my answer! You see, I studied abroad in Paris during college, and I ate these all. the. time.

Like… I gained 10 pounds in 4 months. (I might be exaggerating a little)!
But as you can tell, I love dessert crepes.  I only make them on rare occasion. Looking forward to them once a year on Valentine’s Day is going to be parfait!
 I have several ways to fill them, mix and match and try them all!
A few notes:

*If you want to print this recipe, there is a print icon at the bottom of the post.
*Please pardon my french if anything doesn’t look quite right!!! haha. During college, I studied 3 years of French and lived in the French Foreign language housing for a year, but I’m still far from fluent en francais. 🙂 
Dessert Crepes
Crepe Batter:
4 eggs
1 cup milk
2 TB melted butter
1 cup all purpose flour
2 TB sugar
dash salt
*add 1 tsp red food coloring if you want them red for ♥ Day!
In a blender… add eggs and beat lightly. Add the remaining ingredients and beat for 1 minute. Lightly butter or spray a crepe pan or shallow frying pan. Heat over medium high heat. Add a small amount of batter to hot pan and swirl to coat. Cook until batter loses its shine. Turn and briefly cook on other side. Fill as desired.
Crepe au Citron~
When crepe is cooked, melt butter on top. Then add lemon juice and a sprinkle of sugar. Roll or fold into thirds. A light yet mouth-watering experience!

Crepe au nutella~
Spread nutella over entire crepe, fold and indulge!
Crepe au nutella et des bananes~
Slice a banana. Spread nutella on crepe, top with bananas. Roll or fold.
Crepe a la creme fraiche et des fruits et ganache au chocolat~
(umm… i kind of “made up” a sweet recipe for creme fraiche)

1/2 cup whipping cream
1/2 tsp vanilla
Fruit: bananas, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, anything
Beat together cream cheese and powdered sugar with electric mixer. Gradually add whipping cream and vanilla and beat until light and fluffy. Yield: one cup.

Fruit Glaze~

How-to. (You could just spoon it in, but I like to be fancy).

 This is the crepe pan I use. It’s from Target. The “flipper” thing I bought in Paris at BHV.

 Here’s how I sprinkle powdered sugar, by giving a sieve a few shakes.

 I used foam conversation hearts on top of a crepe and sprinkled sugar on top for a fun shape. You could of course cut your own hearts from parchment paper.

le fin.
bon apetit!
