Nutella Crepes are so easy to make: blend the batter, cook it in a skillet, and slather with Nutella! Fill these (easy) homemade crepes with Nutella®, berries (or bananas!), and a scoop of homemade whipped cream. These banana crepes (filled with vanilla bean custard) are also a favorite! A few months ago when I shared this tutorial on how to make crepes, I also shared the crepe recipe’s origin. We had the sweetest foreign exchange student live with our family when I was growing up. Her father owns a bakery in France and she taught us all of his crepe-making “secrets”. After learning how to perfect crepes (and fill them in hundreds of different ways!), my mom made them frequently growing up. And now in my own home, I make them often for my family. My boys’ favorite way to enjoy crepes is slathered with Nutella and filled with fresh sliced strawberries. QUICK TIP Nutella is a brand of chocolate-hazelnut spread made by the Italian company Ferrero and was first introduced in 1964. While there are many other brands of similar spreads, Nutella is the brand standard, and its name has become synonymous with chocolate-hazelnut spreads. So today I’m sharing how we do Nutella Crepes and hope you love them as much as my family does! So, let’s start with some quick tips! Nutella Crepe making tips Refrigerate the batter for at least one hour. Refrigerating the mixture after it’s been blended relaxes the gluten and makes for airy and light crepes. Nonstick pan: While you don’t need a crepe maker to make delicious crepes, you do need a nonstick pan! (Here’s the exact pan I use when making crepes.) Buttering your pan: Make sure you have enough butter to evenly cover the bottom and partway up the sides of your pan. Your first crepe may be a bit crispy and buttery, but the following crepes should come out perfectly. The initial butter you apply to the pan should last for at least 5-6 crepes. Tips, continued Don’t flip too early: Wait until the crepe’s surface starts to get golden brown spots, the edges start to brown, and it is no longer shiny before flipping. As soon as you pour the 1/4 cup of batter onto the heated frying pan, immediately swirl the batter evenly around the whole base of the pan. This is how you’ll get a thin delicate crepe. Separate crepes as you pull them off the pan with small squares of parchment paper to keep them from sticking together. Stuff Nutella Crepes with… Nutella (obviously!): While any hazelnut spread works, I highly recommend the name brand (Nutella) for the best flavor. Fresh strawberries: Remove the stem and thinly slice Fresh bananas: Peel and slice thinly. Mini chocolate chips: Chocolate chips may remind you of cannoli! Fresh berries: A medley of fresh berries such as strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries complement the chocolate very well. Garnish with… Chocolate granola for a fun crunch A sprinkle of powdered sugar (through a fine mesh sieve) An additional drizzle of Nutella Homemade whipped cream Crushed nuts Shredded coconut Nutella Crepes FAQs How do you melt Nutella for crepes? Scoop about 1/2 cup Nutella into a microwave-safe bowl. Heat the bowl of Nutella for 15 seconds; then remove and stir. Make sure as you stir, you’re mixing the Nutella on the bottom of the bowl. Check the consistency and if it’s not as melted as you would like, return it to the microwave for an additional 15 seconds. It should be melted enough to spread easily, but depending on your specific microwave heat, you can continue to microwave in 15-second increments until you get the consistency you are looking for. How do you fold and stuff crepes? Place the crepe on a plate and spread slightly melted (see above) Nutella on the bottom half of the crepe. If adding fruit, pile it on the Nutella. Fold the crepe in half by grabbing the side without Nutella and fruit and folding it over the Nutella/fruit side. Now fold this half in half again to form a triangle. Garnish and serve! Easy peasy. How many calories are in a Nutella Crepe? A 10-inch diameter crepe has about 90 calories; then the rest of the calories will depend on how much Nutella and/or fruit is added in. Two tablespoons of Nutella are 200 calories and 1/2 cup of unsweetened strawberries has 24 calories in it.

Course Breakfast, Dessert Cuisine American, French Keyword nutella crepes Prep Time 15 minutes Resting/Chilling Time for Batter 1 hour Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes Servings 18 -22 crepes Calories 144kcal Author Chelsea Cost $5.38 Ingredients2 and 1/2 cups whole milk (I don't recommend a lower fat percentage)2 cups white all-purpose flour (measure by spooning and leveling)1/4 cup granulated white sugar1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt (or heaping 1/8 teaspoon of table salt)4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted and slightly cooled2 teaspoons vanilla extract4 large eggsNutella chocolate-hazelnut spreadFresh fruit such as sliced bananas and/or sliced strawberriesOptional: powdered sugar and/or whipped cream InstructionsAdd milk, flour, sugar, salt, melted and slightly cooled butter, vanilla and eggs to a high-powered blender. Blend on low speed until well combined, about 10-15 seconds.Scrape sides and bottom of the blender if there's any flour sticking, and blend a few seconds longer. Cover and chill in the fridge for 1 hour (or overnight if desired).Cut small squares of parchment to separate crepes. This is important so they don't all stick together after being cooked, and especially important if you are saving/storing crepes in the fridge for later.Heat an 8-to-10-inch nonstick skillet over medium to medium-low heat. Remove the batter from the fridge and give it a quick stir. Place one square of parchment paper down on a large tray or platter. This is where you'll stack the crepes as they are cooked.Lightly butter the skillet with melted butter and a pastry brush or paper towel dipped in the butter. Barely lift the pan off the heat and pour 1/4 cup crepe batter into the pan. Immediately, and working quickly, tilt and swirl the crepe pan in a circular motion to evenly coat the bottom of the pan with batter. Return skillet to the heat.Cook until the crepe is golden brown on the bottom (1-2 minutes) and then use an offset spatula to lift an edge of the crepe. Gently grab that edge of the crepe and using your fingers and the spatula, flip the crepe to the other side. Cook until golden brown spots appear (another 1-2 minute on bottom) and then remove to the prepared plate/tray. Place a piece of parchment or wax paper on top of the crepe.Repeat until all of the batter has been used. If crepes are cooking too quickly, reduce the temperature of the burner as needed, and alternatively increase the heat if they are taking longer than 1-2 minutes per side to cook.TO SERVE: Soften Nutella in the microwave by transferring it to a microwave-safe bowl and microwaving for 15 seconds and then stirring. (Microwave another 15 seconds if needed). You don't want it too warm/melty, just so it can easily spread. Spread Nutella along the bottom half of the crepe. If desired, top with fresh, thinly sliced fruit. Fold crepes in half, and then half again to form triangles. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and add some whipped cream as desired. You can also add a drizzle of Nutella if desired. (Transfer Nutella to a plastic bag, seal without air, and cut off the tip with scissors. Pipe over the Nutella triangles.)TO STORE: Let cooked crepes cool completely and then transfer the crepes to a large plastic bag. Seal without any air and refrigerate up to 5 days. Recipe NotesNutritional information includes the crepe with 2 tablespoons of Nutella filling, but no additional fillings and no powdered sugar sprinkled on top.
