BonjourToday (February 2nd) is a popular French celebration called La Chandeleur (also known as the Christian holiday, Candlemas). On this day in France, we eat crêpes--a lot of crêpes. And there's nothing easier than preparing the flat "pastries" appreciated by foodies all over the world. I've attached the video on "How to Make Perfect French Crêpes" so you can see how simple the preparation is.

I've gathered many recipes using crêpes; what a great way to kick off the week!

Crepe Soufflee Recipe

I make crêpes very often. I've done it so many times since I was a kid that I bet I could prepare this batter with my eyes closed. The only difference in today’s recipe is that I made them thicker and fluffier. A crêpe soufflée is basically a regular crêpe batter folded with egg whites. This couldn't be easier!

I flavored the dessert with fig spread, fresh figs and a dollop of whipped cream. To provide a great contrast of texture, I sprinkle crushed honey-roasted peanuts on top. Give this simple French sweet treat a try; I promise you'll be in heavenly dessert bliss!

Today (February 2nd) is a popular French celebration called La Chandeleur (also known as Christian holiday Candlemas). How do you celebrate it, you ask? You eat crêpes, ton of crêpes. 

I prepared 3 large batches of crêpe batter (click the link for the recipe) last night and let the girls toss so they can prepare their own version by laying down multiple filling options on the kitchen counter. Sprinkling crêpes with sugar can be sufficient but is not at all  necessary; the possibilities are truly endless. I've gathered a few ideas for you to try. Bon appétit!

Mandarin Chocolate Mousse Filled Crepe Recipe Recipe

Last night was our first formal dinner party since the New Year and I wanted to add a little wow factor to the end of the meal. I prepared a mandarin-flavored dark chocolate mousse and enclosed it in the cutest little crêpe purses. 

The decadence didn’t stop there, as I garnished the purses with chocolate puffed rice "hung" up high on a spun sugar stick. A little drizzle of coffee-liqueur chocolate sauce finished off the dessert and guaranteed that it would satisfy even the biggest chocoholic's cravings.

I'm starting to plan out what could amaze my Valentine in a few weeks and I know for sure my husband Lulu would be more than delighted that we end our Valentine's Day romantic dinner feeding each other chocolate! Check back for more ideas.
