Directions

  1. Crepe batter: in a large bowl, mix together eggs, milk, water, flour, sugar, 1 teaspoon butter, and cognac.
  2. Filling: beat pudding mix, instant coffee and whipping cream together with an electric mixer until the mixture is thick.
  3. Sauce: in a small saucepan, melt the chocolate, butter, evaporated milk, and confectioners' sugar together until the mixture is a little thick.
  4. Crepes: heat a small skillet (or crepe pan) to a high temperature. Place a small amount of batter into the skillet and swirl it around until the batter covers the bottom of the pan. When the crepe is slightly browned flip the crepe over and let the other side brown for a few seconds. The first crepe will most likely not turn out well, but the rest will. Stack the crepes on top of each other to let tem cool before filling.
  5. Spoon the filling into the center of each crepe and roll the crepe up around it. Spoon the sauce over the crepes and serve.

These were fabulous! I made them for Valentine's Day and my husband went nuts. You know it's good when they "mmm" after each bite. They were somewhat time consuming, but I did it in 3 stages (in between housework, picking my son up from school, etc.): filling (then refrigerated), crepes (also refrigerated-I put a piece of plastic wrap between each crepe), and the sauce right before serving. Just heat the crepes in the microwave before assembly. Yum!

My 13-year old sister made these and they were delicious! My husband didn't care for the mocha taste so you may want to eliminate the coffee granules, but I thought they were awesome!

I made these last weekend...they were yummy...a little sweet, so I would probably use them as a dessert in the future....instead of a breakfast item...also i left out the cognac...and they were still really tasty...very rich.

I made this last weekend and it was amazing. It is very filling though and you shouldn't have too many or you might get sick of it. For a cheaper version you can make the batter and simply spread nutella on the crepes after they are done (with nutella they should still be warm when spreading though)

Being French, I have my own crepe recipe (which is a little different) so I can only comment on the chocolate filling and chocolate sauce. The filling was incredibly rich and delicious. The sauce was very good but I think the heat was on too high because the chocolate did not blend well. Also, you need a big saucepan, not a small one! :-) Both were quick and easy to make and I will definitely make it again, probably in a smaller quantity. Enjoy!

I made these and took to my husbands office, one of the guys, just back from his honeymoon in Paris, told me they were the best he had ever had. My family begs me to make these all the time, I switch the cognac for vanilla and add vanilla to the filling as well!

I like it. My I guess i've done something wrong, cos when i put the filling inside warm crepe it melted at the same moment :(

Very Good. I followed the recipe with only one modification. I used brandy instead of cognac for the crepes. Good taste and not too sweet. I also prepared the crepes, filling, and sauce the day before - very easy.
