Dark Chocolate Orange Crepes

Orange and dark chocolate… one of the BEST combos out there. Well for me anyway. My favorite dark orange chocolate is by Chocolove XOXOX. It even comes with a cute love poem inside and it’s absolutely divine!

I just had to make a dessert crepe to go along with the more recent savory crepes. I figured, why not make my favorite dark orange chocolate into a crepe? If you don’t have orange extract and want to use orange zest instead, click here to see how to make some yourself. Enjoy!

Ingredients

Base:

1/2 Cup Flour (I Bob’s Red Mill GF All Purpose Baking Flour)

1/2 Cup Fat Free Milk (Or Milk Alternative)*

2 Medium Egg’s Egg White

2 tsps of Cocoa Powder

1 Tbsp of Pure Cane Sugar (Or Your Choice)

1/2 tsp of Orange Extract or 1 tsp Orange Zest*

Dash of Sea Salt

Filling:

1 oz. Dark Chocolate, Crushed  (or Your Choice Chocolate)*

Topping Options (NOT included in nutrition info below):

2 tsps Powdered Sugar

2 tsps of Chocolate Sauce (I used Hersey’s Dark Chocolate Syrup)

1 tsp of Mini Chocolate Chips

2 Tbsps Whip Cream

Dollop of Ice Cream

Sprinkle of Orange Zest

Combine all crepe base ingredients into a bowl until batter reaches a watery consistency. If the batter is too thick just gradually more milk. Heat a pan on low-medium flame. Pour some batter and swirl until thin across pan. Cook crepe and flip onto other side once the edges start to turn golden brown.

Remove crepe from heat and fill with some dark chocolate. Repeat to all crepes until batter is done. Should make either four mini crepes or two large ones.

Roll up and voila! Top with whichever topping your heart desires. I personally enjoyed whip cream, chocolate chips and some chocolate sauce. Serves two.

Tidbits!

  • If you want to reduce the calories, simply omit the dark chocolate filling and save 70 calories per crepe, making a serving only 150 calories! This will also reduce fat and sugar as well.
  • You can also use a milk alternative like Almond Breeze or So Delicious Coconut Milk and save about 10 calories per serving.
  • If you are not a fan of orange, you can just use vanilla extract or experiment with other flavors!
