Almost a year ago, I tried an amazing crêpe with s’mores fixings and Nutella from a food truck while on vacation. (It was called Le Crepe and they named this particular flavor the “Boy Scout” – so clever!) I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since, and I’ve been meaning to attempt a recreation for almost 12 whole months. Today is finally that day!
This holy grail of a crêpe included the following:
Mini marshmallows that were puffy and slightly gooey
Crushed graham crackers
A HUGE scoop of homemade whipped cream
A mini Hershey bar for garnish
A powdered sugar sprinkle
It was also folded beautifully, which I tried to mimic for this recipe. Normally I just fold my crêpes in half and call it a day as I’m already cramming them into my mouth, but I wanted these to be just as lovely as the original crêpe that inspired them. Even with smaller crêpes (which I made using this crêpe maker), this folding method still works well.
I know the pictures are a bit confusing – I kept rotating the plate, which, in retrospect, was not a good idea! Start by placing a fresh crêpe on a plate, and immediately fold it in half without filling it. Spread Nutella and other desired toppings on the folded crêpe, then fold it in thirds like you would fold a letter before placing it in an envelope. Make sense? Then you can add your garnishes.
I’ll be honest and admit that even after several months of dreaming about these crêpes, I was totally unprepared to make them this week and did so entirely on impulse. I had no whipping cream, no mini marshmallows, and the bottle of Hershey syrup in my fridge had expired in 2017. Oops.
I also didn’t even take the time to make fresh crêpes. I know, the horror! Although I think crêpes are way easier than most people assume, they do take a little extra time, so when I go to the effort, I always make a huge batch and then freeze a good portion of them between sheets of waxed paper in a Ziploc bag.
So…not only are the crêpes in these photos not even regular crêpes – they’re PUMPKIN crêpes, hence the orange tint – but they were so unplanned that I also had to rip apart jumbo marshmallows instead of minis and drizzle the crepes with expired Hershey syrup.
Now you know.
But now we also both know that Pumpkin Nutella S’mores Crêpes are also good! 😊
Using pieces of jumbo marshmallows worked fine and tasted exactly the same; it just doesn’t look as pretty in the step-by-step photos. Same goes for the Hershey syrup, honestly, except that always looks pretty much the same! The stuff never seems to go bad in flavor or appearance.
Due to my own negligence, my homemade crêpes didn’t get the added bonus of a glorious whipped cream mound like the one from the food truck had. I would certainly encourage that if you have a better-stocked fridge than I do and a few extra minutes to whip up some fresh cream with sugar in it. It makes for a truly showstopping dessert! Next time I’ll plan ahead. 😉
For mine, I just used a piece of a Hershey bar, a crushed graham cracker sprinkle, and chocolate syrup for looks. I also tried another version with powdered sugar that I liked even better. Top your crêpes with whatever you like!
Chocolate whipped cream
Crushed graham crackers
Graham cracker rectangles
Homemade whipped cream or Reddi Whip
Melted Hershey chocolate bars
Sprinkle of powdered sugar
Toasted mini marshmallows

NUTELLA S'MORES CREPES
Serving size: 1 crêpe
1 crêpe, prepared
2 tsp. Nutella
5-6 mini marshmallows (or 1 jumbo marshmallow, torn into pieces)
1 tsp. crushed graham crackers (about 1/4 of one of the smaller perforated rectangles or 1/16 of a whole graham cracker)
1 piece of a Hershey bar
Whipped cream, Hershey syrup, powdered sugar, or other toppings as desired
Place prepared crepe on a plate. If cooled, warm in the microwave for 15 seconds.
Fold in half and spread with Nutella. Sprinkle with marshmallows and half of the crushed graham crackers.
Microwave for another 10 seconds or until marshmallows just begin to inflate.
Fold crepe into thirds and garnish with desired toppings. A generous scoop of homemade whipped cream, a chocolate syrup drizzle, a square of Hershey chocolate, a sprinkle of the remaining graham crackers, and a little shake of powdered sugar is my preference!
