Crepes with Chocolate Sauce

I had a very wondeful day, sunny and the breeze is fresh and warm, so i started my day with fresh french crepes with fresh fruits i got the strawberry and the raspberry from my home garden and i decided to make with these fresh fruits a delicious crepes breakfast to start my day with. I spent a happy moments with my 7 years old daughter she helped me to make these creps and she was happy too, she loves crepes and every morning asks me to make crepes for her, so today i asked her back to help me to make crepe and she happly did.

Crepes is so easy to make you need a very simple ingredients, available in every home as eggs,milk, flour sugar and butter, but the importance is the quantity of the ingredients to make the perfect crepes. If you add less milk you'll have a thick batter and in the end you'll have a pancakes not a mushy crepe so be careful when making crepe with the exact quantity.
