Here I sat earlier today knowing that I wanted to bring you a Halloween Recipe, but not quite sure what it would be. I asked my 9 year old daughter what she thought. Anything that doesn’t have cream cheese. She is allergic to milk and it absolutely drives her crazy when I make something with cream cheese.
After searching, I found this crepe recipe using Bisquick, and being the innovative cook I am I thought I could use the Gluten Free Bisquick, or atleast try. Then we got the creative juices flowing and decided to turn them into chocolate crepes, and make them look like bats. Oh, I was excited now.
After several lessons on what a bat was supposed to look like, thanks Animal Planet! I think we have the perfect Vampire Bat breakfast, or dessert for your little ghouls and goblins. By the way, the Gluten Free Bisquick did work! It worked so well, these will be on our Halloween Breakfast menu for years to come. I may make some for other days of the year just cause they are so yummy!
Sorry honey! I did fill them with homemade strawberry cream cheese, but I will use her Tofutti Cream Cheese and strawberry jam for hers. I think she will like it. We will find out in the morning.
Vampire Crepes with Strawberry Cream Filling
|Crepes· ½ Cup Bisquick (original or gluten Free)· 1 tbsp Sugar· ½ Cup Milk ( You can use Almond or Soy)|
· 1 Tbsp Butter or Margarine (melted)
· 2 eggs (well beaten)
· 1 TBSP cocoa powder
|Filling· 1 8oz package Cream Cheese (softened)· ¼ cup sugar· 1 cup strawberries (thawed frozen is fine)||Decorations· 2 red hots for eyes· 2 white chocolate chips for fangs· 2 raisins for ears|

In a small bowl, beat Bisquick mix, sugar, ½ cup milk, the melted butter, and eggs with whisk or fork until blended.
Grease 6 or 7 inch nonstick skillet with shortening; heat over medium heat until bubbly.
For each crepe pour 2-3 Tbsp batter into skillet; immediately rotate skillet until batter covers bottom.
Cook the crepe for about 30 seconds to a minute or until edges darken.
Run a wide spatula around edge to loosen; turn and cook other side until done; another 30 seconds.
Stack the crêpes as your remove them from skillet. Placing waxed paper between each; keep covered.
In a small bowl beat together cream cheese sugar and strawberries. I used a hand mixer for this.
To assemble spoon about 2 Heaping Tablespoons of the cream cheese in the center of the crepe. Roll up, but not to tightly. Decorate with the candies, and raisins to make it look like a bat.
Makes about 10 crepes depending on size.
