  • Total Time
    Prep: 30 min. + chilling Cook: 45 min.
  • Makes
    10 servings


  • 1-1/2 cups whole milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup creme de cacao
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup half-and-half cream
  • 10 mint Andes candies, chopped, optional


  • For batter, place the first nine ingredients in a blender or food processor. Cover and process until smooth. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in sour cream and vanilla. Fold in creme de cacao and whipped topping. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • For the fudge sauce, in a large saucepan, melt chocolate chips and butter over low heat. Stir in sugar and cream. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Set aside and keep warm.
  • Heat a lightly greased 8-in. nonstick skillet; pour 2 tablespoons batter into center of skillet. Lift and tilt pan to evenly coat bottom. 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.
  • Spoon 1/4 cup filling down the center of each crepe; roll up. Top with fudge sauce. Sprinkle with mint candies if desired.

    Excellent recipe - I made it for a huge brunch I hosted at my summer chalet and they thought that i had catered the food! It was absolutely amazing and very professional. I am still getting compliments on it and my associates are contacting me until now asking me who catered those crepes.

    Delicious, and not overly sweet or heavy, however I did substitute Neufchattel for the cream cheese, evap milk for the half and half, and 2% milk for whole milk. I suggest making the fudge sauce just before cooking the crepes. Mine had to set warm for a while and got gloppy.
