This is a great switch on dark chocolate once in awhile. You can use the glaze shown below, or just hit it with some powdered sugar. I think that the cinnamon is a welcome addition. Enjoy! I take my baking chocolate squares out of the box they come in and put them in zippered bags, but I think the name of the chocolate is "German's Sweet Chocolate."
