Am giving no stars because I encountered a problem with a key ingredient (which was found to be moldy!). I will make this recipe again once I'm able to replace the chocolate extract, which is not easily found in Costa Rica. BUT, I did make this anyways by melting a round of Mexican chocolate in the hot syrup, then straining 3 times through fine cheesecloth. It is murky, but the cinnamon chocolate comes through loud and clear. Can't wait to try it with the chocolate extract sometime soon and upgrade the star rating. Thanks for posting!

I grew up here... <img src="http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa107/chilicat-zaar/156807760503_0_BG.jpg"> and ended up here. <img src="http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa107/chilicat-zaar/Mt-Lemmon.jpg"> Both places are beautiful in their own way, although Arizona is where I learned that the little marshmallows in the Lucky Charms box are actually supposed to be crisp and crunchy, not gummy and all stuck together. What a revelation! <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%203/ZWT3-Participation.gif"> <img src="http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa107/chilicat-zaar/Vixens.jpg" border="0" alt="The Mixin Vixens"> <img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/Recipezaar/RedWhiteBlue.jpg" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza"> <img src="http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/KiwiDutch/3chefstag1.jpg"> <img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1535/CLC1.gif"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
