Hosting a Crepe Bar Party is fun and loved by guests old and young alike. If you read My Weekend Report last Saturday, you saw that a few ward members and I hosted a Crepe Bar for our Faith In God girls and their mothers. (You can read about that HERE.) My daughter Emily and I also put a Crepe Bar together this week for her birthday party. We had a great time at both events and I have to admit to having a significant crepe craving every afternoon for the past few days, dang it. They are just so darn good!
Besides being fabulous on the taste buds, Crepe Bars are great to serve at parties because you can make everything the day before. I would advise cutting any fresh fruit only an hour or two before you serve, but everything else you see here will keep well for 24-48 hours. Many of the recipes I used for the party are already here on my site and I will be linking directly to them throughout this post. There are, however a couple of new ones that I will be sharing with you in the next two days, so stay tuned if creamy crepe filling is your cup of tea.
To make a Crepe Bar happen you need to have at least a couple of options available in the following categories.
Sauces and Syrups
You’ll want to cut either parchment paper or wax paper (about 6 inches square) to place between each crepe so that your guests can easily grab one crepe at a time. This also helps from getting everyone’s fingers all over every crepe.
We opted for Fresh Strawberries and Sliced Bananas at our parties because they are relatively inexpensive and currently in season. Fresh raspberries, blueberries or peaches would also be fabulous.
SYRUPS and SAUCES
Simple Hershey’s Syrup is awesome.
Strawberries and Whipped Nutella Mousse in a Chocolate Crepe…
covered with a bit of whipped cream and Butter Cream Syrup. Rich and down right heavenly. 🙂
We used Toasted Coconut, Toasted Sliced Almonds, Powdered Sugar, Cinnamon Sugar and the standard, well-loved Whipped Cream.
Hope you found this helpful, if you have questions that weren’t addressed in the post, leave them below in the comment section.
