Chocolate Almond Dessert Crepes
This recipe is presented by Eggland’s Best. Impress your friends and family with chocolate-almond dessert crepes for a brunch or dinner party dessert. You’ll need an 8-inch nonstick skillet, a wire rack for cooking the crepes, and wax paper for stacking them. To pipe the chocolate filling down the center of each crepe, stuff it into a zip-lock plastic bag and snip off ½ inch at one corner to create your own pastry bag.
- 11⁄4 cup milk
- 3 large eggland's best eggs
- 2 tbl butter, melted
- 3⁄4 cup whole-wheat flour
- 1⁄4 tsp salt
- 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
- 2 tbl water, cold
- 1⁄4 cup water, boiling
- 1 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup baking cocoa
- 2 cup heavy whipping cream, cold
- 2 tsp vanilla essence
- chocolate fudge ice cream topping and whipped topping
- 1⁄2 cup almonds, sliced and toasted
In a large bowl, combine the milk, eggs, and butter.
Combine the flour, sugar, and salt and add it to the milk mixture. Beat everything until smooth.
Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over cold water; let it stand for 2 minutes to soften.
Add boiling water; stir until the gelatin is completely dissolved and the mixture is clear. Cool slightly.
In a large bowl, mix the sugar and cocoa; add the cream and vanilla. Beat it on medium speed until well blended.
Gradually beat in gelatin mixture. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
Heat a lightly greased -inch nonstick skillet.
Pour 1/4 cup of batter into the center of the skillet. Lift and tilt the pan to evenly coat the bottom. Cook until the top appears dry; turn and cook 15-20 seconds longer.
Move the cooked crepes to a wire rack to cool. Repeat with the remaining batter, greasing the skillet as needed.
Stack the crepes with waxed paper or paper towels in between.
Spoon or pipe the chocolate filling down the center of each crepe; roll up.
Drizzle with the fudge topping and garnish with the whipped topping. Sprinkle with almonds.
