Spoon 1/3 cup souffle mixture into center of each crepe; fold in
half. Place filled crepes on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees
for 10 minutes or until puffy. Spoon Chocolate Sauce over each
crepe; sprinkle with powdered sugar. Garnish with orange rind
strips, if desired. Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 filled
crepe and 3 tablespoons Chocolate Sauce).
