Chocolate Mousse in Chocolate Pancakes

I made these delicious Chocolate Mousse filled Chocolate Pancakes for dessert one night years ago, good grief! They were terrific !!!

Needless to say it is by now one of our most requested desserts, not only family, but from our friends as well.

The super easy to make Chocolate Mousse filling is rich, smooth and so very chocolatey. You can even taste a hint of the espresso.

In South-Africa our everyday pancakes are actually known in other countries as crepes. Thin crepes (pancakes) with a generous sprinkling of cinnamon sugar is sold just about everywhere.

I make these fairly thick, as I did not want to roll them up the usual way, but rather folded them in an “S” shape with the filling in between.

You can totally make them thinner, it is up to you. This recipe yields 6 thick pancakes (about 15 centimeters / 6 inches in diameter) and if you make them thinner, you should get around 8 – 10 pancakes.

A note: If you do make them thick, one is more than enough per person (adult). Although, I can not guarantee that you would not want one or two more!

Serve these Chocolate Mousse in Chocolate Pancakes as a week night dessert, part of a special breakfast and especially when entertaining guests !

You can trim the edges as I do to make the Pancakes look a little more sophisticated and dare I say, professional !
