Caramel Pecan Crepes

You can use either the blender crepes or the cocoa crepes in this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 6 prepared crepes
  • 6 tablespoons bottled caramel sauce (You can use more for the final drizzle if you like)
  • 6 tablespoons toasted pecan pieces (toast by lightly browning them in a nonstick frying pan over medium heat, stirring frequently)
  • 6 dollops of light vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt

Preparation:

  1. Warm up one of the crepes in a nonstick frying pan or skillet for about 30 seconds over medium heat.
  2. Drizzle a tablespoon of caramel sauce over the top side of the crepe. Sprinkle a tablespoon of toasted pecans over the caramel and continue to warm crepe for 10-20 seconds more.
  3. Flip the crepe over (to make a half circle) and flip one half over again (to make a quarter circle). Serve on a dessert plate with a cookie scoop (about 1/4 cup) of light vanilla ice cream. Drizzle a little more caramel sauce over the scoop of ice cream if desired.
  4. Repeat steps with remaining crepes and ingredients.
