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 Crepes!
How To Make Red Velvet Crepes Filled with Raspberry and Sweet Cream Cheese
(full printable recipe at the end of this post)
This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy here.
First, you need a blender, I used my KitchenAid blender (which I LOOVE!) to mix up all of the ingredients until they are nice and foamy. According to Jeffrey, the key to great crepes is to let the batter sit, refrigerated, for about an hour before cooking.
Next, while the batter is sitting, mix up an easy cream cheese filling (I had some leftover from the red velvet pancakes I had made). Spoon the cream cheese icing into a decorator bag fitted with a jumbo french decorating tip.
Once the crepes are cooked, use a spoon to spread some red raspberry preserves down the center of each crepe and pipe the cream cheese filling over the preserves. – oh my word was that a good combo!
I RECOMMEND FOR THIS RECIPE:
*you don’t have to be fancy though, you can use a plastic bag in place of the piping bag, snip the tip off and pipe filling over preserves (no decorator tip needed).
Lastly, just fold both sides over, put them on a plate, melt a little Nutella in the microwave and drizzle over the top. You could do the same with chocolate or even chocolate syrup if you want.
Red Velvet Crepes for Valentines Day Breakfast or Dessert
These red velvet crepes 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 Valentine’s Day breakfast severed with some fruit or served as a dessert.

I tried to make this last night but my cheese filling turned out soupy!! what did I do wrong?!
I’m so sorry. My best guess would be that you measured something incorrectly.
Could I make the batter the night before for the next morning??
