1. Combine flour, cocoa, sugar, espresso powder, baking powder and salt in medium-size bowl. Add milk, butter, eggs and vanilla; beat on low until blended; beat at medium-low just until smooth.

Pour 2 heaping tablespoons batter into skillet and rotate skillet until film of batter covers bottom (see photo at right). Cook until surface of crepe begins to dry, 2 to 3 minutes. Run spatula around edge to loosen. Turn over; cook until bottom is light brown, about 2 minutes. Remove crepe. Repeat with remaining batter, stacking crepes between sheets of waxed paper and covering.
