    crêpes) add the add a generous layer of the whipped cream at the end spreading out thinly
    towards the end, add the thick fruit pieces at the beginning of the crepes layering again until
    thick to 3/4 of the way.
  4. Fold in the sides of the crêpes and roll up, wrap again in cling wrap, and chill.
  5. Melt the chocolate and gradually fold in the cream until smooth and glossy, once the crêpe roll
    has set, pour over the ganache and add your fruit toppings, chill again until set and slice & enjoy!
