Boozy Chocolate Cinnamon Sauce Recipe
1 pound semisweet chocolate, chopped
1 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 cup bourbon
Simmer the chopped chocolate and stick of butter in a double boiler (or a substitute for the double boiler), stirring occasionally with a spatula until smooth and melted. Be careful not to allow the water to boil, as steam or water will cause the chocolate to seize. In a separate heavy-bottomed pan, scald milk and cream together with cinnamon. Add the milk, cream and cinnamon mixture to the chocolate and butter mixture and stir. Blend in bourbon.
