A few weeks ago I stumbled upon a tastebud-tantilizing dessert – the ice cream crepe. I fill it with vanilla ice cream and topped it with pureed fresh strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries.

Then I proceeded to make 14 of them and polish them off by the end of the weekend.

 

 

Can you blame me?

 

So I didn’t stuff all 14 crepes with vanilla ice cream that weekend.

I stuffed some with coffee ice cream!

 

Starbucks Java Chip ice cream, to be exact.

 

Oh, and I topped them with some thick, gooey, homemade chocolate fudge sauce.

Because I do everything in life excessively.

 

 

Coffee Ice Cream Crepes

6-8 crepes

1 pint coffee ice cream

Let ice cream sit out and soften for 10-15 minutes. Scoop out 1/8-1/4 of a cup and place in the middle of the crepe. Repeat with others. Freeze for 1 hour. Top with chocolate sauce.

Recipe for Homemade Chocolate Fudge Sauce.

 

 

You don’t even want to know how good this was. So, so, so good, that I think you should drop what you are doing and go make them right this instant.

I will be over soon for dessert.

    Yum. I have never tried the Starbucks ice cream because I’m always afraid it will keep me up! But, I am going to try to make my own one of these days, using decaf coffee. I just LOVE coffee ice cream, it’s two of my favorite things combined into one, who can’t love that?!

    I’m hoping for a dessert similar to this for my b-day tomorrow. We’ll see what Nick ends up getting me, or what the restaurant has to offer!

      Bahahah my body isn’t all that bangin’! But we never eat ALL of this stuff at once, unless we go crazy on the weekends – which happens sometimes. :) And for most recipes, I 1/2 or 1/4 the recipe so it doesn’t make alot!

      I think there are some daily eats posts somewhere in the Fit Bites section.

But i’m so bad at making pancakes, I have a feeling my crepe making skills are most likely lacking too. Maybe I should find someone to make them FOR me.. now there’s an idea!
