Non-stick cooking spray
3 Tablespoons granulated sugar

5 Ibarra Mexican chocolate disks totaling 15 ½ ounces, chopped
½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
8 large eggs, separated, room temperature
½ teaspoon vanilla
¼ teaspoon kosher salt

Soft Cinnamon Whipped Cream:
1 cup heavy cream
1 Tablespoon powdered sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

Prepare Pans: Preheat 350°F. Spray ramekins and sprinkle with granulated sugar. Pour out excess sugar and put prepared ramekins on a sheet pan. Set aside.

Melt Chocolate: Melt Mexican chocolate and butter in heavy medium saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly until melted (mixture will be grainy).
