 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
   16      ounces        white baking pieces with cocoa butter
      1/4  cup           whipping cream and 1/4 cup of cream of
                         -- coconut
                         OR
      1/3  cup           whipping cream and 3 tablespoons butter -- (I use this
 one)
    1      cup           sliced almonds -- toasted and chopped
    2      tablespoons   amaretto -- (I find vanilla
                         -- extract is better)
   18      ounces        semisweet chocolate pieces -- (3 cups)
    3      tablespoons   shortening
    4      ounces        white baking pieces with cocoa butter
    2      tablespoons   shortening
 
 Heat and stir 16 ounces of white baking pieces, cream and cream of coconut or
 cream and butter just till melted.  Remove from heat.  Stir in almonds and
 amarette (or vanilla extract).  Transfer to 8x8x2inch baking pan; cover.
 Freeze 2 hours or until firm.  Cut filling into 48 portions; shape each
 portion into a ball.  Place on baking sheet.  Freeze 15 minutes.
 
 Melt chocolate.  Using a fork, dip balls one at a time into chocolate; place
 on waxed-paper-lined baking sheet.  Melt 4 ounces white baking pieces and 1
 tablespoon shortening over hot water.  Spoon over candies.  Makes 48.
