Crepes con Arequipe (Dulce de Leche Crepes)

“Crepes and Waffles” is one of my favorite restaurants in Colombia. I loved going there and trying every crepe on the menu. It was a very popular restaurant that has multiple locations in Medellin. We would need to wait for a table in line outside on the weekends, but it was totally worth it. I miss that place a lot!

I was craving crepes for a while, yet never made them at home, so I decided to make some filled with Arequipe. They were decadent, rich, smooth and most definitely addicting. I don’t know too many people who don’t succumb to the magical powers of Dulce de Leche. These crepes were so easy to make and soooo good! I can’t wait to make them again with a savory filling.

Buen provecho!

crepes are pretty good when they’re packed with fruit or chocolate, but for me, dulce de leche is the very best filling!

I remember eating a lot of these, but they put rum on top and then flame them…
