Check out what you need to make these easy Nutella crepes:
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup milk

- 2 tablespoon melted butter
- 1 cup flour
- 2 tablespoon granulated sugar
- Nutella hazelnut spread, as much as you like

How To Make Nutella Crepes
1. Make the batter: In a bowl, beat the eggs with milk, sparkling water, vanilla extract, sugar, and butter. Add the flour and gently stir until you have a smooth batter. Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and let the crepe batter chill for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
2. Pour batter: Heat a crepe skillet or large skillet over medium heat. Spray the skillet with some nonstick cooking spray and pour ¼ cup of the batter onto the hot pan. Spread the batter evenly around the skillet using a swirling motion until the bottom is coated.
3. Cook crepes: Cook the crepe batter for 50 seconds, lift it up, and gently flip the crepe. Cook it on the other side for another 30 seconds and transfer it to a plate. Repeat this process with the remaining batter.
4. Fill the crepes: Spread as much Nutella as you want on top of each crepe. Fold the crepe in half, then into a triangle. Serve each folded crepe with fresh fruit like strawberries and bananas on top. Enjoy!
Tips To Make The Best Recipe
- Mix all the crepe ingredients in a blender until smooth and combined to save some time.
- Use a crepe pan to cook the crepes in. If you're a crepe lover, this is a great investment to make. They'll cook flatter, and you'll have perfect crepes every time!
- Use a crepe spatula to spread the batter out in the pan.
- Top the Nutella crepes with some heated Nutella drizzled on top, fresh fruit, whipped cream, powdered sugar, or any other delicious toppings you want.
How To Store Nutella Crepes
In the fridge: Store any remaining crepes in a shallow airtight container or gently wrap them in plastic wrap and store them in a Ziploc bag. They'll last for up to 3 days in the fridge.
In the freezer: Wrap each crepe in plastic wrap and place them in a freezer-safe bag. Or, layer them with parchment paper in a freezer-safe airtight container. Freeze crepes for up to 4 months.
Reheating: Put the crepes on a baking sheet and warm at 300°F for about 8 minutes. If you're reheating frozen crepes, add more baking time or let them thaw in the fridge overnight first.
FAQS About This Nutella Crepes Recipe
Is crepe batter the same as pancake batter?

Why are crepes chewy?
Crepes turn out chewy if they are cooked for too long. It's better to cook crepes quickly over high heat for the best consistency.
How many calories is a Nutella crepe?
The total amount of calories will depend on how much Nutella you put on each crepe. If you use about one tablespoon of Nutella, a Nuteall crepe will have around 150 calories.
