Ice Cream Innovations

This is also from my McCall's cookbook series, the Show Off volume, from 1981. Maybe I'm a sloppy eater, but I think eating ice cream from brandy snifters is a mess waiting to happen.
Here's the description:
Serve the ice creams in a snifter. Notice we say ice creams (plural) (good thing they explained it), meaning, of course, that you depart from the norm and serve a variety of flavors rather than just one. Nice? We think it is. Fresh, too.
What I think is that everyone would want the same, and be disappointed with that blue one in front...
One suggested sauce is Cinnamon-Chocolate:
3 squares unsweetened chocolate
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 can evaporated milk, undiluted (2/3 cup)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In small saucepan, combine chocolate, 1/4 cup water, sugar, corn syrup, salt, cinnamon, and evaporated milk.
Cook, stirring, over low heat until chocolate is melted and mixture is thickened-about 8 minutes. Remove from heat.
Stir in vanilla, mixing until well blended and smooth.
Serve warm or cold, over peppermint ice cream.
I don't know about cinnamon over peppermint...but otherwise this looks tasty.
We are getting ready to move, provided our house will sell. Now Hercules and his task with the Aegean Stables were always my favorite myth. If only I had a river to sweep out this place.
