In a food processor grind the almonds, the chocolate and 20 g of corn starch. Personally I don't make them very fine but it is a personal taste
Ingredients: chocolate 250 g, almonds 350 g, eggs 6 separated, sugar 150 g(or brown sugar), corn starch 20 g, butter 225 g-melted, orange zest. (Didn't have I used candid orange peel)
In a food processor, put the almonds, the chocolate and the corn starch. Reduce to a powder. I like that the almonds remain coarse.. Add lemon peel if using.
Add the warm melted butter
Egg yolks + sugar beat 2-3 mins
The add the chocolate mix over the egg-sugar
Add 2 tbsp grand mariner (orange liquor) optional
Egg whites in peaks. Fold in the batter
