Shamrock Crepes

Looking for a yummy and pretty dessert
to serve to celebrate St. Patrick's Day?

These lovely green crepes are so tender
and delicious and super easy to make.

Accented with a chocolate shamrock and
a handful of mini chocolate chips, these
are the perfect dessert.

I just used my regular crepe recipe with a touch
of green food coloring, and my favorite creamy
crepe filling, also with a touch of green.

Crepe Recipe

4 eggs
1 1/2 C. milk
1 C. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 T. melted butter or oil

Place eggs, milk, flour and salt in blender,
and turn on stir.  Blend until smooth and
then add in oil and blend a little more.

Let the batter stand for about 30 minutes to
reduce bubbles.  Stir in green food coloring gel.

Heat a non-stick frying pan on medium high.
Spray with oil.  Pour in about 1/4 C. batter,
and turn the pan to create a thin crepe.  Heat
until it looks dry on the top, then flip and
cook for just a few seconds.  Remove from
pan and let cool.

Crepe Filling

8 oz. room temperature cream cheese,
2 l packages White Chocolate or French Vanilla Instant Jello Pudding
Milk as per directions on pudding packages
12 oz. container Cool Whip, thawed
Green Gel Food Coloring
Mini Chocolate Chips

Whip the cream cheese until smooth.
Prepare the pudding according to package
directions.  Whisk it into the cream cheese.  Fold
the Cool Whip into the pudding mix, adding a little
food coloring gel to create a pretty green.

Spoon some of the filling down the back side
of the crepes.  Sprinkle in a few mini chocolate chips. 
Roll up the crepes, placing the seam side down.

Garnish with additional Cool Whip or 
whipped cream and chocolate shamrocks.

Chocolate Shamrocks

Trace the shape of the shamrocks on 
parchment paper.  I used my small cookie 
cutters for the shape, but you could print them 
off the internet.  Melt chocolate discs and place 
them in a pastry bag with a small tip.  Pipe
the shamrock out, following the pattern.  Let 
cool until hard.


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
