Irish Crème Crepes with Cinnamon Vanilla Bean Whipped Cream

I come from a long line of Irish descendants. And to be honest, I have always been proud of that. It is my favorite blood line (don’t tell the Germans).
I love to celebrate St. Patty’s Day, and maybe it is only because I have great childhood memories of going to the St. Patty’s Day parade; they always had the best candy! However, my favorite treasure was from local bagel shop, Gibb’s Bagels. They always threw out, green bagels. I loved them! My sisters and I thought it was so cool. I’m not sure if we even ate the bagels, but I we loved them anyway.
I want to carry on some similar memories for my kids. I want them to remember something green that they ate on St. Patty’s Day, and I actually want them to eat it, not just think it’s cool.
Well, my kid’s favorite all time breakfast is crepes, so I thought this year it would be cool to make Irish Crème Crepes with a little green food coloring to start a tradition they will always remember. I made a little cinnamon vanilla bean whipped cream to garnish.
From my pot of gold to yours, luchair (delight, enjoy in Irish Gaelic)!

Kids review: I was worried that since this had Irish Crème in it they would turn their noses at it. Especially since I had them smell the syrup and they all gagged. LOL! But they loved them, I tripled the batch and not one was left (well there were actually 2, but I intentionally stuck them aside for my husband).
