Place the chocolate in a medium mixing bowl; reserve. In a small, heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the cream, corn syrup, vanilla, salt and cinnamon. Set over low heat and bring to a strong simmer. Immediately pour over the reserved chocolate and let sit for five minutes before whisking to combine. Reserve. Fit the Cuisinart® Griddler® Combo with the grill plates and preheat both to medium. Once the grill has preheated, place the apricots, cut side down, evenly across the grill plates. Grill for about 6 minutes on each side, or until slightly softened. To serve: In an ice cream dish, or a small plate or bowl, scoop ½ cup ice cream per serving. Divide the apricots among dishes; drizzle with chocolate sauce and top with the almonds.
