CoCos Nutella Crepes

CoCos is a wonderful coffee shop in Houston’s Midtown area.   I love independent coffee shops, here they serve up coffee, homemade desserts, and all sorts of crepes.   This was one of my favorite desserts they have served.  Nutella is a wonderful creation, and you have to love in their commercials they try to sell the benefits of eating healthier because of Nutella.  While I am not going to make any profession that this dish is healthy, I will tell you it is delicious, and simple. 

CoCos Nutella Crepes Recipe

Crepe making isn’t difficult, you may have never tried making your own crepes before. You can buy them premade in many grocery stores in the refrigerated sections, but I prefer to make things homemade when you can. Making food homemade often means saving money, and knowing what is in your food. Crepes have a few simple ingredients. Now, the real key in making crepes is planning ahead, you mix the batter, and then you let the batter rest in the refrigerator for a couple of hours before serving.
I don’t advocate purchasing a special pan to make crepes in. I use my well seasoned iron skillet, and it works wonderfully. I own a crepe pan, but I like my highly seasoned pan, because nothing sticks in my iron skillet. So I advise cooking your crepes slowly, so they don’t brown too much. Be creative with your crepes, while when I ordered these they were simply nutella in wonderfully cooked crepes, I think adding some sliced bananas, some nuts, and maybe some whipped cream would make for a wonderful dessert too!

    If you feel like a splurge, we sell the most delicious hazelnut butter EVER! I was a skeptic, but as soon as we popped the top and had a taste, everyone agreed it was to die for! I just finished my first jar and am holding back from buying another because … well, it’s an indulgence on the wallet and the waistline, but the good news is that there are just 2 ingredients … hazelnuts and sugar. No erzatz anything. If you have a W-S near you, run, don’t walk and pick up a little jar of this stuff. You’ll thank for for the recommendation and the next time you make these crepes you’ll probably call CoCos and tell them they have to try it too. hahahahaha!

    You need to go to Europe and try the nutella crepes from the Crepe stands. My favorite late night snack was always the banana and nutella crepe. SO GOOD!
