Description

These festive funfetti crepes are perfect for morning celebrations.  Birthdays, graduations, back to school, will be even more special with these on the menu!


Ingredients

For the Filling:

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

  • 8oz neufchatel cheese, softened

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 Tbsp+ of Funfetti sprinkles

For the crepes:

  • 1 cup of all purpose flour

  • 1.5 cups milk

  • 2 egg whites

  • 1 whole egg

  • 1 tsp canola oil

  • ½ tsp salt

  • 1 Tbsp sugar


Instructions

For the filling:

  • Whip the heavy cream in a medium bowl until stiff peaks begin to form.  Set aside briefly.

  • In a second bowl.  Beat together the neufchatel cheese, sugar and vanilla extract until smooth.

  • Fold together the whipped cream and the neufchatel mixture.

  • Refrigerate until ready to use.

  • *To avoid possible staining, wait until you are ready to use the filling to mix in the funfetti sprinkles.

For the Crepes:

  • Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

  • Heat a 6-8” nonstick pan over Medium-Low.

  • Add 2 Tbsp of batter and tilt the pan to spread and form a circle.  

  • Cook until it begins to firm (30-60 seconds).  Flip and cook an additional 10 seconds.  

  • Remove to a plate and cover with a damp paper towel.

  • Repeat the process until you are out of batter.

Notes

Notes:

  • If the batter is sticking, spray lightly with cooking spray before adding batter.

  • To tint pink (or the color of your choice), add several drops of food coloring to the batter, re-blend and continue as above.

To assemble:

  • One by one, lay a crepe flat and spoon or pipe a strip of frosting down the center.  

  • Roll up like a taquito or flip in half, like a soft taco.

  • Serve immediately, topped with additional whipped cream and funfetti sprinkles, if desired.
