Strawberry Cream Crepes with Chocolate Drizzle

These are absolutely delectable and make a gorgeous presentation! The best part? They're easier to make than pancakes. No, really! These would make a perfect Valentine's night dessert for your little ones or your significant other... or for girls night! Because really, what's better than chocolate and strawberries with a light-as-the-clouds cream cheese filling? That's what I thought. 

What You'll Need:
serves 2-3
for the crepes:
1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup whole milk 
1 tbsp sugar 
1/4 tsp salt 
2 large eggs
1 1/2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
for the filling:
1/2 lb strawberries
1 tbsp sugar
4 oz cream cheese
4 oz mascarpone cheese 
1 cup powdered sugar 
1 tsp vanilla extract 
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream 
for the drizzle:
1/2 cup chocolate chips 
4 tbsp heavy whipping cream 

What To Do:
To prepare the crepe batter, combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until completely smooth, about thirty seconds. Cover and refrigerate the batter for an hour. 

Meanwhile, Rinse and chop the strawberries, storing in a bowl. Sprinkle with sugar and stir to fully incorporate. Cover the strawberries with a paper towel and allow to sit at room temperature until ready to use. 

Heat a nonstick skillet to medium  heat and spray with cooking spray. Pour batter into the skillet (will be runny) and swirl to ensure it's evenly distributed. Allow to cook through and then flip it over with a spatula. Remove and all to cool on a plate. 

To prepare the cream filling, beat together cream cheese, mascarpone cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla on medium speed until fully combined and fluffy. While mixing, slowly add the heavy whipping cream. Continue to beat until you reach the desired fluffiness. 

To prepare the chocolate drizzle, place chocolate chips and heavy cream together in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds and then in 10 second intervals until fully melted, stirring each time. Add more cream for a thinner consistency if desired and stir well. 

In the middle of each crepe, spread a generous amount of cream filling. Layer strawberries on top of that, and roll together carefully with the seams down. Drizzle chocolate over each crepe and garnish with extra strawberries.
