Imagine you and your significant other board a plane and head to Paris for a whirlwind romantic vacation! Well, imagine no more because that is totally possible with Cost Plus World Market’s latest #SummerinParis Sweepstakes!
My husband and I were lucky enough to do just that several years ago. On our 1st anniversary, my husband surprised me with a trip to Paris and Venice. It was an amazing adventure and really perked up my interest for travel.
In celebration of the Summer In Paris Sweepstakes I created a Parisian recipe that you can enjoy at home too! First, I visited my favorite store, World Market of course, and grabbed a few items I would need.
World Market had practically everything I needed, including crepe mix, toppings, a mixing bowl, and an 8″ pan so I can make perfectly rounded crepes!
Fruit Crepe Recipes
1 cup of crepe mix, 2 eggs, 1 1/4 cups of water, 1 tsp vanilla extract (if desired), 2 tbsp butter, fruit, and toppings
In a mixing bowl combine 1 cup of crepe mix, 2 eggs, 1 1/4 cups of water, and 1 tsp vanilla extract and whisk together. The batter should be thin.
Preheat a skillet over medium heat and lightly coat with butter. Pour the batter onto the skillet using 1/4 cup for each crepe. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so the batter forms an 8-inch circle.
Cook approximately 1 minute on each side or until lightly browned.
Next spread a generous amount of fruit or fruit jam in the center of the crepe, fold, add desired toppings, and serve.

Below you can see I chose sliced bananas for my fruit, then folded and drizzled with caramel sauce. I then added some confectioners sugar and it was ready to enjoy.
My husband wanted a strawberry crepe so I spread a generous amount of strawberry Jam on the crepe, folded, added chocolate hazelnut sauce (found at World Market too) and a bit of confectioners sugar. I heard a lot of mmm’s while he was enjoying his breakfast, and after he shared that this was the most delicious food I had ever made him!
We have enjoyed crepes several mornings now switching up our fruit and toppings. It’s been a lot of fun, and really delicious too!
