Chocolate Cream Cheese Crepe Filling

Christy Faber
This Chocolate Cream Cheese Crepe Filling is irresistible (seriously!) and a great way to make crepes extra special.  The best part of a crepe is what you put inside!  This filling has delicate chocolate flavour and a slight tang from the cream cheese. It is reminiscent of a light chocolate mousse with a creamier texture. This filing is naturally sweetened with maple syrup. Although it's meant for crepes, it would also be excellent on pancakes, with strawberry shortcake, or to top brownies. Only 5 ingredients and it’s quick to whip up!

Equipment

  • Hand Mixer

Ingredients
  

  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips, melted
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Instructions
 

  • Melt ½ cup of chocolate chips with 1 tbsp of heavy cream in a small saucepan on low heat. Once melted, take off the heat and allow the melted chocolate to cool slightly.
  • Whip one cup of whipping cream to soft peaks. Transfer the whipping cream to another bowl while you mix the remaining ingredients.
  • Using the same mixing bowl (and no need to clean it out), cream the softened cream cheese together with the maple syrup and salt. Mix in the melted, cooled chocolate.
  • Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture until fully incorporated. Enjoy!

Notes

You really do have to whip the cream in a separate bowl before folding it into the cream cheese mixture. Believe me, I tried just doing it all together in one bowl and it did not work. Luckily, you can learn from my mistake!
