Yummy...my Mom has been making this for years during the holidays, and they were always the first candy to go.
- 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- 3 tablespoons amaretto liqueur
- 1⁄2 teaspoon almond extract
- 1 cup finely chopped almonds
- In a heavy saucepan, over low heat, melt chocolate chips with the sweetened condensed milk.
- Stir in amaretto and almond extract.
- Chill for 2 hours.
- Shape into 3/4" balls and roll in nuts.
- Chill until firm.
- Store at room temperature in an airtight container.
- Flavor will improve after 24 hours.
- You can adjust the amount of amaretto to your taste, depending on how strong you want the taste.
