TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + chilling Cook: 5 min./batch YIELD:22 servings
- 4 eggs
- 3/4 cup 2% milk
- 1/4 cup club soda
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons strong brewed coffee

- 1. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, milk, soda, butter, coffee and vanilla. Combine the flour, sugar, cocoa and salt; add to milk mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
- 2. Heat a lightly greased 8-in. nonstick skillet over medium heat; pour 2 tablespoons batter into the center of skillet. Lift and tilt pan to coat bottom evenly. Cook until top appears dry; turn and cook 15-20 seconds longer. Remove to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet as needed. When cool, stack crepes with waxed paper or paper towels in between.
