BATON ROUGE - Chef Kelley McCann joined News 2 in the kitchen to prepare chocolate marscapone-filled crepe.
Chef McCann showed us some surprise ingredients in this treat. According to him, the main ingredients are chocloate chunks, marscapone cheese, berries, pistachios and whipping cream.
Ingredients and Directions
- 1 c. chocolate chunks or chips
- 1 c. marscapone cheese
- 4 crêpes
- 4 strawberries (diced)
- ¼ c. blueberries
- ¼ c. Luxardo cherries
- 2 T. granulated sugar
- 2 oz. chopped pistachios
- 1 c. heavy whipping cream
- 2 oz. confectioner sugar
In a small bowl, add cherries, strawberries, blueberries and sugar. Sugar will draw out juices from fruit. Allow to sit for an hour.
For chocolate filling, fill a small pot half way with water and bring to a boil. In a small metal mixing bowl, add chocolate chunks and place bowl on top of pot. Stir chocolate with wooden spoon and allow to melt over indirect heat then remove from heat. Mix in marscapone cheese and place in a new container.
In a small mixing bowl, add cream and sugar. Whisk vigorously until cream is firm.
Lay out crêpe and spread chocolate mix over entire crêpe. Fold over twice, top with berries and cream. Then sprinkle pistachios over and enjoy.
