Raspberry Crepes with Berries & Cream

My boyfriend Kyle invented this recipe. It's a lovely summer dessert and doesn't take long to prepare at all.

Pancake batter (follow instructions from whichever brand you use)
1 tbsp butter
3 tsp raspberry extract
Red food coloring
1 tbsp white sugar
1 cup whipped cream
1 cup chocolate chips
Assorted berries (strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, etc)


Make about 1 cup of pancake batter according to the directions on the package. Add the raspberry extract, white sugar, and about 4-6 drops of red food coloring (batter should turn a medium pink). Taste the batter, and if it isn't quite sweet enough, or doesn't have enough raspberry flavoring, adjust those ingredients to your liking.

Grease a hot pan with a little dab of butter and drop pancake batter by small spoonfulls onto the pan, to make silver dollar sized pancakes. Keep doing this until you have used the batter up and made a decent sized pile.

Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave on low heat, stirring occasionally. Wash and dry the berries you plan to use.

To assemble, make a small pile of pancakes, drizzle with chocolate, surround with berries, and top with whipped cream. Hooray!

Tips - this would work with any flavored extract, I've tried almond and also banana. You could also top with caramel or sprinkle with coconut.
