  7. Looks scrumptious! If I leave out the cocoa it is just a traditional crepe? I am thinking nutella...

    ReplyDelete
  16. Not hard at all, these are easy to make. I used to make them when I was a kid. Hard to mess up!!

  17. I tried these over the weekend and they were great! So delicious and easy to make. My oldest son loved them --even with low-fat sour cream (and some powdered sugar mixed in) instead of whipped cream(my youngest refused to try them but that is a different issue ;-) . Yum! Will definately be making these again

    ReplyDelete
  18. Great! Sour cream huh, never tried that! :)

  19. Made these for brunch today. Yummy! Found we were out of strawberries, so used blackberries instead. My 2 1/2 year old loved them.

  22. The recipes on this site look great, but this recipe is not really the best tasting. Bottom line it was not worth the points. But, I'll be trying others on the site.

  23. Those chocolate crapes look absolutely amazing!

  24. Made these this morning.....they were so good. Hard to believe I could eat 2 for 5 pts and I made them for breakfast. My husband was so happy and he loved them. Thanks again!

    ReplyDelete
  25. These are delicious! I just made them last night, and my husband and I could not believe how good they tasted!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Such a great way to get your chocolate fix!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Would LOVE the new Points for this recipe!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. We made these this morning. We used fresh sliced cherries instead of the strawberries. I wanted a creamier filling so added lite vanilla yogurt with the whip cream...which added .5 point per crepe. YUMMY!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Do you happen to know the Point+ Values for these? I'm wanting to make them for breakfast for my Husband's Birthday, and we are both following the new WW program. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I made these for breakfast this morning for my Husband's Birthday, and let me tell you.....OH MY! YUM! We loved them! I put a dab of whipped cream on the side of his plate, and put a cpl strawberries on top, and drizzled chocolate across them. It was a pretty accent to the plate of beautiful delish crepes! :) You're a genius, Gina! I have not made one thing of yours that I don't like! Have you ever thought about making a cookbook? If not, you SO should!

    ReplyDelete
  31. ok - any tips on flipping these? i just can't do it. they end up in a crumpled mess. They taste delicious - just aren't very pretty. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Nevermind... I think I wasn't letting them cook long enough on the first side. Now they are lookin' good. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. My 8 yr old daughter and I made these for brunch for our girls day in. They were a hit! I did sub fat free milk for the 1% and I used fat free ricotta and fat free sour cream for the filling along with lots of fresh strawberries. YUM!

    ReplyDelete
  34. These are SO good!! They weren't the prettiest things, but they sure tasted great! I was out of chocolate syrup, and I bet they'd be EVEN BETTER with the syrup!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Yes! They would, but I'm sure they were still good.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Looks good, I will have to give them a try! Just tried 1st recipe from you site last night-my house still smells like delicious food this morning!!! Love it! So glad to find recipes w/ WW points listed....old pts and new. Thank you for all of your hard work and kitchen time to make life easier for the rest of us!

  38. These look fabulous...any chance of updating to WW points plus or providing the nutritional info so I can calculate myself? Thanks to your recipes almost every night since August I am down 20lbs and no one one the family thinks they are eating "diet food"

    ReplyDelete
  39. Updated!! You'll love these, my daughter is a big fan!

  40. I made these last night. I've never made crepes before, and I loved the texture! I was wondering about the points, though. I'm doing the old program, and I got 3 points when I plugged in the numbers above. Just curious...I ate 2! :-)

  41. Gina these look great!
    You've inspired me in many ways.
    I'm the cupcake girl remember.
    Thanks for answering me.
    Cupcakalous,

  42. Umm WOW!! GINA these ROCK!! :) My husband was so pumped to get to try these!! So delicious! He made them for mothers day :) totally perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  43. These were out of this world!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I want to try making crepes soon, but I never had 1% milk on hand... Would skim milk work?

    ReplyDelete
  45. SO DELICIOUS. Taste great when made with splenda too!! I tried them with bananas and yogurt instead of coolwhip and strawberries, and it was great!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Probably a silly question but the recipe says it makes 12 servings but it calls for 1/4 of the crepe batter for one crepe...so wouldn't that only make 4 crepes? Sorry! I'm probably missing something obvious....thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Yup...it was something obvious...didn't realize it said 1/4 cup not 1/4 of the mixture....lol oops!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Can the crepes be made ahead of time, refrigerated, then reheated in the microwave for a few seconds before filling and serving?

    ReplyDelete
  49. i mixed sugar free vanilla pudding into my whipped cream for an extra rich filling. it was AMAZIng

    ReplyDelete
  50. um...these are freaking awesome. I made them the other week for company and they were so wonderful. today, I was going to do them again. I discovered that my milk had expired and it smelt of it too. instead of panicing, I thought: what would gina do. so I got out my greek yogurt and mixed it with some water.

    not quite the same, but I heard no complaints at all at the breakfast table.

    Thank you Gina for everything. I cook from your recipes all the time. and my whole family just loves it!

  51. These were alright, but, without the butter, the flavor and texture is just wrong. Keep looking.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Could I use almond milk in place of the 1% milk?
