I’m a big fan of chocolate, so there’s no questioning my love for red velvet………it’s a given.  So, a week ago when I was making  red velvet pancakes, it occurred to me how delicious red velvet crepes might be!

I was first turned on to making crepes when Jeffrey Saad made Nutella Crepes for us in Napa with Bush’s Beans a while back.

So I decided to use the same recipe and turn it into red velvet!

I used my KitchenAid blender (which I LOOVE!) to mix up all of the ingredients until they are nice and foamy, then Jeffrey says the key to great crepes is to let the batter sit, refrigerated, for about an hour before cooking.

 

I had some cream cheese topping left over from the pancakes, so I tossed some in a decorator bag and used a jumbo french decorating tip to pipe over a little Smucker’s Raspberry Preserves. – oh my word was that a good combo!

*you don’t have to be fancy though, you could just spoon the filling, or place some in a plastic baggy, snip the tip off and pipe filling over preserves (no decorator tip needed)

I then just folded both sides over, put them on a plate, melted a little Nutella in the microwave and drizzled over the top.  You could do the same with chocolate or even chocolate syrup if you want.

These were AMAZING!  You could taste the red velvet perfectly, the sweet cream cheese filling was not overly sweet, the raspberry preserves gave each bite an unexpected surprise and the Nutella just pushed it over the top.

As rich as they may look and sound, I have to say, they weren’t that overly disgusting rich at all.  They would make a beautiful Valentines Day breakfast severed with some fruit or served as a dessert.
