Have you noticed that Valentine’s Day and chocolate just go together?

Have you noticed that it can be really hard to stay on your low carb eating plan around the various holidays that are sprinkled throughout the year like carb-filled landmines?

I thought so.

Well these low carb chocolate mousse crepes are SO good that you won’t really be tempted AND even your non-low-carbing friends will like them. Seriously, my 17 year old just walked in from school, and jammed one in his mouth – never even asked if it was low carb.

Chocolate Is a Valentine’s Day Tradition Here

My entire house is made up of chocoholics. I think I have one son who isn’t a fan of chocolate – or he didn’t used to be. I think he’s become more addicted to it as he got older – maybe he’s a late bloomer.

So, it really can’t be Valentine’s Day unless there’s chocolate somewhere. I’ve always gotten the kids one of those little heart shaped boxes of chocolate and left it at their place at the breakfast table Valentine’s Day morning. I know that lots of people have lots of cool traditions but that’s the only one I have time for. 🙂

When I was small the Valentine’s Fairy came to our house and left little gifts on the pillow just before bed IF I had been loving and kind all day. I’m not sure if it was a ploy by my parents to make me behave (after all – these were the people who called Santa Claus to tell him I had been sassy two days before Christmas) or if they just thought it was a cool idea.

Either way – it’s one of my favorite February memories. As adults we get so busy we forget to take time to create a little magic in our lives since our parents aren’t doing it for us anymore (or maybe they never did). There’s nothing wrong with nurturing yourself! When you get the kids boxes of Valentine’s Day candy get yourself some flowers or something.

You’ll be surprised at what a difference it makes in your outlook on life.

Tips for These Low Carb Chocolate Crepes

These crepes are so easy to make but there are a few things that will be helpful for you to know.

  • The heavy cream and half and half should be very cold.
  • If you’d like to cut the calories a little you can use almond or coconut milk for 1/2 cup of the half and half.
  • You can cut calories further by using less of the filling in the crepes (but what fun is that?)
  • The eggs and cream cheese should be room temperature.
  • Make sure you are using sugar free instant pudding mix and syrup.
  • Serve immediately after making.
  • You can’t make these ahead of time and they don’t freeze well.

The sugar free syrup is an important part of this recipe. It sweetens the crepes and the liquid helps to give the batter the right consistency. I used Torani Sugar-free Brown Sugar and Cinnamon.

  1. Marye, the Valentines Fairy? That’s awesome. Too bad my kids are now too old to believe that one. They can certainly be more kind and loving toward each other. Thanks for the recipe. Will add it to my list : )
