Chocolate Cinnamon Nachos

Today is National Nachos Day. Nachos are a Tex-Mex dish from northern Mexico. Nachos are usually tortilla chips covered with melted cheese and jalapeno peppers and served as a snack. Sometimes Nachos served with salsa or guacamole. But this is a Chocolate Blog, so to celebrate today's holiday, make
Chocolate Cinnamon Nachos! This recipe is very slightly adapted from Taste of Home. So easy, too.

Chocolate Cinnamon Nachos

Ingredients
6 flour tortillas (8 inches)
7 tablespoons sweet butter, melted, divided
6 tablespoons sugar, divided
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate (or very dark chocolate), chopped
1/2 teaspoon Mexican vanilla extract
(Optional)1/2 cup chopped pecans

Directions
Brush both sides of tortillas with 4 tablespoons butter. Combine 2 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over one side of each tortilla.
Stack tortillas, sugared side up; cut into 12 wedges.
Arrange in single layer on baking sheets.
Bake at 350° for 12-14 minutes or until crisp.
Meanwhile, in heavy saucepan, combine cream, brown sugar, and remaining butter and sugar. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir for 5 minutes or until slightly thickened.
Remove from heat; stir in chocolate and vanilla. Cool slightly.
Arrange half of tortilla wedges on large serving platter.
Drizzle with half of chocolate sauce
Optional:  Sprinkle with half of the pecans.  (I don't)
Repeat layers.
