Raspberry Almond Chocolate Crepes

These are just as good without the raspberry M&M's. If you want them though they carry them at Target.

  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • 6 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2¼ cups lowfat milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Vegetable oil as needed
For the filling:
  • 2 cups part skim ricotta cheese
  • 1½ cups raspberries
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup toasted almonds
  • Zest on orange
