Recipe: BERRY MOJITO CREPES

BERRY MOJITO CREPES

Thin, soft crepes are one of the most simple but satisfying things to eat. You can have them with all sorts of fillings for any meal but today we're making awesome boozy mojito berries, although the alcohol is optional! This one comes with a fire warning too... flambé is optional too! Thanks to Happy Eggs for providing our eggs for this one! :)
