I always have left over crepes when I make Manicotti.
My favorite thing to do with the left overs is make a very easy dessert with them.
Raspberry filled or…
I prepare the fruit by cutting the strawberries or raspberries up and sprinkling a generous amount of sugar to it. And adding a few tablespoons of water. Mix it up well and allow it to sit for a few hours. The berries will sweat and make a sweet sauce. I usually make this either first thing in the morning or the night before.
I then make a bavarian pudding or vanilla pudding. Whatever I find in the store. Usually its just an instant pudding. You do not need alot. I make a small box.
Add fruit and some pudding and roll up the crepe.
Add some whipped cream, more fruit juice and sometimes….
Drizzle on a little bit of chocolate syrup I usually have on hand from my children having ice-cream.
I have even taken nutella and melted some in the microwave and drizzled it on.
You can do all types of fruits and toppings. They are so delicious!!!
