    1       oz           Squares milk chocolate

   The positively elegant “very adult” confection is from
   Blue Diamond.
   
   In blender or food processor, finely grind 1/4 cup of
   the almonds; set aside. Combine chocolate with orange
   juice and sugar in saucepan. Cook over medium heat,
   stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved and
   chocolate is melted. Remove from heat and mix in
   crushed wafers, Curacao and the chopped almonds. Chill
   mixture at least one hour. Form into small balls; roll
   in the ground almonds. Refrigerate in air-tight
   container for several days for best flavor to develop.
   Makes about 3 dozen.
