Cuckoo for Cocoa Crepes!

Well, I’ve done crepes, and I’ve done chocolate pancakes, so I thought it was high time for some Chocolate Crepes! (The original recipe is from Leite’s Culinaria.)

I decided to pair the crepes with some olive oil and honey glazed pears and folks, get ready, because this is a breakfast you’ll remember! The crepes themselves are not very sweet (you’re using dark chocolate after all) so more than anything, you get a rich dark cocoa taste that’s kicked up with some powdered sugar and the pears.

(freshly melted chocolate waiting to meet its batter match)

You can use these crepes as a vehicle for anything, that goes with chocolate – chopped strawberries, sliced apples, marshmallows, a scoop of peanut butter, a dollop of nutella…more chocolate (the original recipe also has instructions for a chcolate ganache)!  Whatever you use, though, try to use the “soft” version – I tried the crepes with both cooked and raw pears, and the cooked pears definitely paired better (pun totally intentional).
