We could eat this every day. I really liked the fact that this wasn't too sweet - just enough sugar with the rest added by the chocolate and ice cream. The cinnamon was a very nice touch. A delicious, Mexican Sundae.

YUM! the sugar melts in the pan and the cinnamon is georgous but watch out because it caramelises and becomes toffee very quickly upon leaving the pan and cooling off. Not a problem with a small amount but maybe something to be aware of if you were in increase the servings considerably. I served this with chocolate and vanilla icecream and chocolate sauce since the choc bits stated are not available here in the Netherlands. Please see my Rating System: a decadent 4 stars for a very yummy dessert that we will be enjoying again. Thanks!
