Nutella Crêpes with Hazelnut Foster Syrup

While it may be Super Bowl Sunday, in all honesty we aren’t really football fans. Today is a foodie event as much as it is a football event. So we are always glad to show up dish in hand and help man the kitchen.

Nutella Crêpes with Hazelnut Foster Syrup

Today is also apparently Crêpe Day – something I’m far more likely and interested in celebrating. I thought there would be no better way than to develop a fun crepe recipe. So I decided to mix it up and make Nutella Crêpes. After all, February 5th is just around the corner and it is National Nutella Day – so what’s a girl to do? Simply combine their awesomeness and make amazing syrup to go on top.

Nutella Crêpes with Hazelnut Foster Syrup

NUTELLA CREPES

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/4 cup Nutella
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup AP flour
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
    plus additional for cooking Crêpes
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder

Directions: 

Get your blender ready (or a large mixing bowl). Melt 3 Tablespoons of butter, set aside to cool.

Batter Part 1

In a medium sauce pan combine milk and Nutella, place over low heat and whisk –  whisk – whisk
until smooth and blended. Set aside to cool.

Once cooled this is the first ingredient you will add to your blender (or bowl if you are using a whisk or hand-mixer).

Batter Part 2

Next add: water, egg, flour & cocoa powder & salt, melted butter, and pulse-pulse-pulse
until a batter forms – now scrape down the sides and pulse-pulse to make sure it’s fully mixed.

This is your lovely Crêpes batter and now it has to take a nap.
At least 1 hour in the fridge or overnight. (Batter should keep for about 2 days in fridge)

Crepe Pan

Now let’s talk pans. Non-Stick is essential in my opinion.
You can use any pan really, but I happen to have this Whopper of a Crêpe Pan.
It’s almost 10-inches. You don’t have to make your Crêpe this large.
You can make 4-5 inch or even larger – the only thing it affects is how much
batter you need to pour on initially to form your Crêpe. This pan takes a heaping 1/3 cup.

Crepes Part 1

Remove batter from the fridge and give it a stir.
Set a plate or dish to the side to receive finished Crêpes.
Heat your pan over medium-high heat and brush with melted butter.
Pour on Crêpe batter (this is a over-flowing 1/3 cup for my huge pan)
Start swirling your pan in a clockwise or counter-clockwise motion – to cover the pan.
Set back on heat and let cook for 45 seconds to 1 minute. Until the bottom is set and
the Crêpe will loosen from the pan.

Using a large spatula or simply the pan, flip the Crêpe
over and continue cooking for another 45 seconds to 1 minute – transfer to dish – REPEAT!

I wish I had a flip picture, but taking a picture and flipping is impossible – I tried. This happened:

Flip Fail
But, it also allows the opportunity to say – this sad misshapen Crêpe is not trash!

Once you give it a nice quarter fold – no one will ever know and frankly it taste’s the same!

Now for the syrup, oh my – the syrup…

On Nutella Crêpe. The End.

Can I say, Oh Holy Mother? These Crêpes are that good – I promise. I was worried about the Nutella
coming through, but it doesn’t disappoint! Also this syrup would be amazing on, well on just about anything.
