Who doesn't love sinking their teeth into a perfectly cooked crepe for breakfast? The only way to make it better? By adding Nutella, of course! Nutella crepes are an easy recipe you can serve as dessert or at breakfast that both kids and adults will love.

You can whip up in a matter of minutes, and even make the batter ahead to save you time on those busy mornings. With its rich chocolate hazelnut flavor, Nutella is perfect when spread over light, airy crepes.

The best part is that this effortless recipe is super easy to customize. You can add fruit, nut butter, powdered sugar, chopped toasted nuts, and more. Nutella crepes are a great recipe when you want to treat yourself to a little something sweet in the morning.


Can I Make Nutella Crepes Ahead?

Absolutely! The batter can be made up to one day in advance – just cover it and leave it in the fridge overnight. The next morning take them out, fire up your non-stick pan, cook the crepes, then add a generous later of Nutella. Delicious!


Tips for the Best Nutella Crepes

You can use any type of milk to make your crepes: whole milk, skim milk, or plant-based milk.

While you can skip letting the batter rest, allowing it to sit for 10 to 30 minutes will vastly improve your crepes.

Jazz up your Nutella crepes by adding your favorite fillings. Add fresh fruit like bananas, strawberries, tangerine slices, or peaches, sprinkle in some chopped nuts, a dollop of peanut butter (or any other nut butter), or whipped cream.

For extra-rich, decadent crepes, use heavy cream instead of milk.


How to Store Chocolate-Hazelnut Crepes

For cooked crepes, store them in an airtight container in the fridge and enjoy them within 2 days. You can store them fully assembled or without the Nutella, depending on your preference.

Can You Freeze Nutella Crepes?

Either filled or unfilled crepes can be frozen. If you're freezing the crepes unfilled, be sure to place a layer of parchment paper between them. Frozen crepes will last up to 2 months. Thaw them overnight in the fridge.
