Holy sugar rush/deliciousness! Seriously. There is so much goodness inside this little red wrap, I don't know how to contain it.

Red Velvet Crepes with Raspberry and Cream Cheese Filling
2 eggs
1 egg yolk
1 cup milk
1/2 cup water
pinch salt
3 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon sugar
dash of vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
1½ Tablespoon Cocoa Powder
red food color
extra butter to cook with
Raspberry Preserves
Sweet Cream Cheese Filling
Nutella (or chocolate)

Sweet Cream Cheese Filling:
16 ounces cream cheese, softened
½ tsp lemon juice
2 cups powdered sugar
1/ 2 cup ricotta {Did not use, but I want to}
1 tsp vanilla extract

Combine 2 eggs + 1 egg yolk, milk, water, salt, sugar, vanilla food color, and melted butter in a blender and pulse until foamy.
Add flour and cocoa powder and pulse until smooth. Let the batter sit for an hour.
Prepare Cream Cheese Filling by mixing all filling ingredients with mixer until well combined and smooth, set aside.
After batter sits for one hour, heat a small non-stick pan. Add butter to coat. Pour 1 ounce of batter into the center of the pan and swirl to spread evenly. Cook until the top loses its gloss, which should only take a minute, then flip. The bottom should be golden. Cook the other side for about 15 seconds and then slide out onto a plate. Repeat with remaining batter.
Prepare crepes by spreading a one inch wide strip of raspberry preserves down center of crepe, then top with cream cheese filling. Fold each side of crepe over filling and plate.
Melt Nutella in microwave for about 30 seconds and drizzle over crepes. {Or just put Nutella inside the crepes}
