Cinnamon Roll Crepes

Cinnamon Roll Crepes

Is it too bold to say I just revolutionized breakfast? Because really, I did. Monday mornings will feel like Saturdays. Brunch with your in laws will be a picnic in the park. Holidays? Just got more joyful.

This is it people, breakfast does not get better than this.

Cinnamon Roll Crepes

I love a good crepe. I really really love a good crepe. Filled with fluffy creamy filling and topped with something rich and tasty. Chocolate filling, mousse filling, vanilla filling, orange-cream filling… top it with chocolate syrup, fresh berries, or caramel sauce…. h.e.a.v.e.n!

You know what else I love? Cinnamon rolls. Thank you Cinnabon, you forever changed my life. But today I’m one-upping Cinnabon (no offense, I still love you!).

Cinnamon Roll Crepes

Recall for a moment your all-time favorite cinnamon roll experience. Cinnabon at the airport? Mom’s specialty on Christmas morning? Well combine that memory with a light and perfectly cooked crepe. Seriously! Cinnamon Roll . . . . CREPES. I would go out on a limb here and honestly tell you that I am convinced that these Cinnamon Roll Crepes are better than a traditional cinnamon roll. Try it for yourself, you mind will be absolutely blowwwwwn! And these are easier and less-time consuming that cinnamon rolls. BONUS. I’m in love. Absolutely head over heels in love.

    Hi – can I set you a challenge? We don’t have cool whip in Australia, yet so many American recipes use it. Any chance you can come up with home made cool whip to help us out?? We’d love you forever! Cheers, Tarsha.
