    2                    lg. egg whites
    2      tbsp.         amaretto
    4      tsp           almond extract
    4      c.            powdered sugar
    1      c.            cornstarch
   16      oz.           Hershey’s special dark chocolate
    5                    sq. unsweetened chocolate
 
 Preparation :
    In a large bowl, cut almond paste into chunks; add egg whites, 2
 tablespoons amaretto, 4 teaspoons almond extract.  Mix well.
 Gradually add 4 cups powdered sugar (small amount at a time) to
 stiffen.  Add almond extract, amaretto, sugar and cornstarch until
 dough is stiff and tastes the way you like it.  Chill overnight,
 then roll into balls.  Melt chocolates together over double boiler
 (or melt in microwave).  Dip balls in chocolate and chill in
 refrigerator.  “Grandpa said that this was the same candy he had as
 a child in Germany.”
