    Chocolate Peanut Butter Crepe Cake 

    My husband is the real Chocolate Peanut Butter lover in the house. Since he doesn’t try any of the fruit desserts I make, I make some treats special for him. THIS was his special dessert. Eighteen layers of chocolate crepes loaded up with sweetened cream cheese and peanut butter then topped with Resees’ Peanut Butter Cup Aebleskiver.

    He was totally blown away when he saw this dessert. It’s a total first for me. Almost all of it was new to me. It was my first time making Aebleskiver . It was my first time making crepes. I think I did a pretty good job at both of them! I’m kinda proud of myself.

    What is a Crepe Cake?

    Crepe Cakes are also known as Mille Cales. “Mille” is a French term meaning thousand, and as you can see there appears to be a thousand layers to this cake. Ok, not really, but if you count up the crepe layers + the filling + the sauce + the Aebleskiver = 40 layers of decadent yumminess!

    Assembling the Crepe Cake

    Putting this “cake” together was pretty easy and I did make it all in one day. None of it is very labor-intensive or tricky to make. It is time-consuming to stand at the stove for an hour to cook everything one at a time, but it all held up great and came together perfectly.

    First, I made the Chocolate Crepes. They are easy, but as I said, time-consuming to make one at a time.

    Then I made the stuffed Aebleskiver. These were fun to make using my new pan.

    Finally, I layered the cream cheese filling between 18 layers of crepes. Then I just topped the stack of crepes with more peanut butter and the Aebleskiver. Easy Peasy!

    I hope that you try these wonderful treats. They really should not be missed.

    There are 18 chocolate crepes with a layer of cream cheese, chocolate spread and peanut butter in between each one.  Then I’ve topped them a peanut butter spread, added the Reese’s Peanut Butter stuffed Aebleskiver, drizzled on some chocolate syrup and then gave it a good dusting of powdered sugar! Aaaahhhhhh!   Makes you wanna dive into that mountain of sugar doesn’t it.

    Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Crepes, Pancakes Puffs!! Mind blown!

    Prep Time 30 minutes
    Total Time 30 minutes


    • Chocolate Crepes
    • 6 oz cream cheese, softened
    • 6 oz peanut butter
    • 6 oz Chocolate Spread
    • 4 tablespoons peanut butter
    • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
    • Aebleskiver
    • Chocolate Syrup
    • Powdered Sugar


    1. Mix equal parts cream cheese, chocolate spread, and peanut butter in a mixer on medium speed. Beat until smooth and fluffy.
    2. Layer a crepe with one to two tablespoons of the chocolate cream cheese filling and spread it evenly. Be careful not to get too much in the center of the crepes and too little at the edges. You'll end up with a large mound in the center.
    3. Heat your peanut butter and coconut oil in the microwave for 10 - 20 seconds together and stir until melted and smooth. Pour over the crepes.
    4. Arrange the Aebleskiver around the top. I did have to anchor a few with a toothpick because they kept sliding off with the peanut butter.
    5. Drizzle the chocolate syrup and a few sprinkles of powdered sugar. You can also add a few mini chocolate chips if you'd like. Collage image on how to assemble the chocolate and peanut butter crepe cake.
    6. Enjoy it layer by layer or bite by bite. There's no wrong way to eat this.

        1. You are so welcome, Karyn! I wanted to let you know this DELICIOUSNESS was our most viewed link at last week’s party – yay! This means you will be featured across all four of our blogs when the party goes live at 8PM EST tonight. Congrats!!

    2. I first saw a crepe cake years ago and have had it in the back of my mind ever since to make one – of course haven’t gotten around to it somehow. Now I see them a lot, which makes me less inclined to want to do it, but holy cow! This one looks/sounds awesome – right up my alley. Tempted to lick the screen to catch that sauce as it pours. 😉

      1. Wow! Thanks so much for the compliment. I’m a total self taught amateur, so it makes me happy to hear such nice things about my food and photography! Thank you.

      1. thanks so much! Had you stopped the party? I’ve checked a few times in the past few months, but didn’t see it… Thanks for stopping by!

    3. Oh. My. Goodness. That looks amazing. My ballet instructor would kill me though!!! Those leotards are not forgiving 😉 It makes me hungry looking at the pictures though!
