Ice Cream Stuffed Crepes with Nutella and Fresh Berries |

A few years ago the Mr. and I stumbled upon a little dessert cafe in Columbus called Dane’s Dessert Cafe. We had just finished our dinner and were looking for somewhere to get a sweet fix. What we found was far more than a “fix.” It was more like a second dinner made entirely of ice cream, chocolate, and sugar. In other words: awesome.

Dane’s specializes in dessert crepes and waffles, meaning they take your favorite breakfast treat and add ice cream and chocolate. Obviously, it’s our favorite place ever.  We love curling up in a corner booth after a fancy date and sharing a plate of Rock the Boat crepes stuffed with Raspberry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream and drizzled with Nutella.

But I’m gonna be honest. Date night loses some of its luster when it requires thermal underwear, digging your car out of the snow, and wearing pants. Pants = Overrated. Sometimes the most appealing date night looks more like blanket forts, Parks and Recreation marathon, and dessert on the couch. Pants optional.

But for some reason I’d never thought to recreate our favorite crepes at home. Was it fear? Laziness? Dane’s dependence? Yes. Yes. and Yes.

Turns out, none of those things should have kept me away. These crepes are ridiculously easy to make and they require no special equipment. I made these in a regular ol’ 8 inch non stick skillet. The keys for me were to fully preheat the pan before starting, use lots of butter (that’s just a life tip, really), and use a pie server to loosen up the crepe all the way to the middle before flipping.

This week’s #SundaySupper theme is Valentine’s Recipes for Two, so this recipe is paired down to make about 4-5 crepes. Which, in crepe math, equals 1 to fall apart before it ever leaves the skillet, two to snack on while you slice strawberries, and 1 crepe each for you and your love to stuff with ice cream and go bonkers crazy for.

I don’t feel much needs to be said about how amazing these are. I mean, sweet crepe…raspberry chocolate chunk ice cream…Nutella…berries…bananas. This is ultimate dessert stuff. The warm crepe slowly melts away at the ice cream forming puddles of sweet cream and Nutella. Ok, I have to stop. I’m drooling just typing this.

Wondering how to keep this from turning into a melty mess before you have a chance to dive in? I thought you might be. Just make sure you prepare everything–wash and slice your berries, make the crepes, plate them, and smear a little (or a LOT) of nutella down the center–before you take the ice cream out of the freezer. Then scoop, fold in half, and roll. Smother in the good stuff and DIG IN.

Share if you want…or make this an ice cream and nutella crepe recipe for 1. I won’t judge.

Ice Cream and Nutella Stuffed Crepes for Two #SundaySupper
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 1 large eggs
  • ⅓ cup whole milk
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ cup flour
  • 1½ Tablespoons melted butter, plus more for greasing the pan
  • 1½ Tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 scoops ice cream of your choice (I used Black Raspberry Chip)
  • Nutella
  • Raspberries
  • Sliced Strawberries
  • Sliced Bananas
  1. In a blender, combine the egg, milk, water, flour, melted butter, sugar, and vanilla extract. Pulse until mixture is blended and creamy. Let the mixture rest for 30 minutes-1 hour in the fridge.
  2. In the meantime, prepare your toppings. Slice the bananas and strawberries and rinse the fruits.
  3. Heat an 8-9 inch non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Test it by putting a few drops off water in the center. If they sizzle, scatter, and evaporate immediately, your pan is the right temperature.
  4. Place a good coating of butter on the skillet. Pour about ¼ cup of batter into the skillet in a swirl from the center to the outside. Lift the pan and tilt in a circle so the batter evens out across the skillet.
  5. Cook the crepes until bubbles form and the top side is no longer runny. Use a pie serve to loosen the edges and center of the crepe, then a large spatula to carefully flip the crepe over. I usually always mess up at least one crepe, but I promise you'll get the hang of it! Cook the opposite side for 1-2 minutes or until it gets light brown spots.
  6. Remove the crepes and set them in a single layer on a baking sheet in a warm oven until ready to serve.
  7. To serve, place a swirl of nutella on the crepe. Top with a single scoop of ice cream. Fold the crepe in half from bottom to top, then roll from left to right. Top with more nutella, berries, and sliced bananas.

    You are so darn witty, Courtney! I imagine the temps are pretty freezing about now in Ohio…And one needs to dress in lots of layers. But I love that you are still eating ice cream (with Nutella!) Truly you are a lady after my own heart <3

    • Courtney @ Neighborfood February 9, 2014, 1:46 PM

    It’s sad but the only way I’ll eat crepes is if there is nutella in them. You’ve found the way to my heart!

  • cynthia February 10, 2014, 4:46 PM

    Drool me out the door. This is unbelievable! I’m a sucker for a good crepe (I think I chain-ate crepes the entire time I was in Paris!) but with ice cream inside sounds beyond incredible. Love this, Courtney!

  • Nancy February 11, 2014, 3:39 PM

    Good gawd – I want this glorious, crepe-y, melty, ice-creamy, Nutella fabulousness in my face Obviously going pantless (or at least pants with a mighty forgiving stretchy waist) is the only way to go. Nothing says romance like being lazy ‘n unkempt in front of the tv while shoving this dessert into your mouth!
