1 T boiling water
2 t instant coffee
2 1/2 t cinnamon, divided
1/3 C heavy whipping cream
6 (1 oz) squares bittersweet chocolate, chopped
2 T butter, room temperature
3 T sugar

When melting chocolate be sure to stir continuously.  This will help the chocolate to melt and become smooth. Should your chocolate become clumpy add 1 t of solid shortening per square of chocolate and continue stirring until the mixture becomes smooth.
