Yield: Makes 6 crêpes; serves 6


Caramel sauce:

  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup half and half
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup

To make the caramel sauce: In a small, heavy saucepan over medium heat, heat the sugar until it melts and turns a light amber color. Carefully stir in the half-and-half, butter, and corn syrup. Cook and stir until smooth and slightly thickened, about 2 minutes.

Place each crêpe on a dessert plate. Place 2 spoonfuls of the ice cream on each crêpe and fold gently to cover. Drizzle the caramel sauce over the crêpes and sprinkle with nuts. Serve at once.


To toast pecans and walnuts, place the nuts in a baking dish and bake in a preheated 325°F oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden.
