3. In a mixing bowl, combine chocolate and butter. Place the bowl in microwave for 30 seconds. Remove the bowl from oven and stir well. Repeat the process until chocolate melts. You can also melt chocolate in double boiler.
4. Stir in 2 tablespoons of sugar, egg yolks, cinnamon, and vanilla.
5. In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites with a mixer until foamy.
6. Add the remaining sugar and the salt, and beat until stiff peaks form.
7. With a spatula, fold 1/3 of the stiff egg whites into the chocolate mixture, to lighten it.
