6 packets sugar substitute or equivalent of 1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon margarine, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
Nonstick cooking spray
4 ounces fat-free cream cheese, softened
1 package (1.3 ounces) chocolate-fudge-flavored sugar-free instant pudding mix
1-1/2 cups fat-free (skim) milk
1/4 cup all-fruit strawberry preserves
2 tablespoons water
2 cups fresh hulled and quartered strawberries

Preparation

  1. To prepare crépes, combine flour, cocoa, sugar substitute and salt in food processor; process to blend. Add milk, egg substitute, margarine and vanilla; process until smooth. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.
  2. Spray 7-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Pour 2 tablespoons batter into hot pan. Immediately rotate pan back and forth to swirl batter over entire surface of pan. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until crépe is brown around edge and top is dry. Carefully turn crépe with spatula and cook 30 seconds more. Transfer crépe to waxed paper to cool. Repeat with remaining batter, spraying pan with cooking spray as needed. Separate crépes with sheets of waxed paper.

  4. To prepare strawberry topping, combine preserves and water in large bowl until smooth. Add strawberries; toss to coat.
  5. Spread 2 tablespoons chocolate filling evenly over surface of crépe; roll tightly. Repeat with remaining crépes. Place two crépes on each plate. Spoon 1/4 cup strawberry topping over each serving. Garnish as desired. Serve immediately.
