Use the double boiler method to best melt the chocolate. If you don’t actually have a double boiler, bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil. Place chocolate in a slightly smaller saucepan and hold it over the boiling water, being sure not to touch the bottom of the pan with the chocolate to the boiling water. Stir chocolate constantly until ¾ of it has melted. Remove from heat and continue stirring until the rest is melted.
Prepare a parchment paper lined plate of board (one that will fit in your freezer or fridge).
Dip 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5 cm) of each cinnamon stick into the chocolate. Let excess drip off then set on the prepared plate. Repeat for each cinnamon stick, then place the plate in the freezer or fridge for about 10 minutes, or until chocolate is hardened.
If you still have chocolate and are feeling up for it, double dip your cinnamon sticks into the chocolate, repeating step 3 above.
Stir into coffee and enjoy!
