- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a bowl, toss the chips with the cinnamon and sugar, spreading the sugar evenly. Next, stack or mound the nachos on a large plate or serving dish. Top with the chocolate and bake until the chocolate is melted, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve with Creme Fraiche and Warm Berry Salsa.
- Whisk the sour cream, heavy cream, confectioners’ sugar and liqueur thoroughly. Refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes or up to overnight.
Warm Berry Salsa:
- In saucepan over high heat, bring 1/2 cup water to a boil. Reduce the heat and add the sugar and liqueur. Continue to cook until the sugar begins to brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from the heat, add the vinegar and butter and place in the refrigerator until chilled, about 10 minutes.
- Once the sauce has cooled, add the berries and mix thoroughly. Finish with splash of spice if desired.
- Once mixed, reheat the salsa over low heat in a saucepan for 2 to 3 minutes or in the microwave for 45 seconds. Serve warm.
