NotesI have had this recipe for years but thought it was too much fuss. Then I went to a chain restaurant and had a dessert with crepes. The crepe had cocoa added to make it a chocolate crepe. It was then rolled around some softened chocolate ice cream and refrozen. When it was time to eat it was taken out of the freezer, whipped cream from a can was squirted on it, then chocolate ice cream sauce drizzled on top, a few strawberries cut to fan them and laying in a bed of raspberry coulis. Heaven.
