Marzipan chocolate

Owe this awesome recipe to Yuval Nesselroth :)

2 cups almond
1 1/2 cup sugar - powdered
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp almond essence
20-25 squares of 70% dark chocolate - cut into small pieces

1) Bring about 2-3 glasses of water to boil. Add almonds and keep it aside for a minute. Drain the water and  pinch the almond skins out. (You can use almond meal if you want to avoid this)
2) Grind this to a coarse mixture. Mix this with sugar, lime juice and almond essence.
3) Take a Tbsp of this mixture and roll into a ball. Do this for the rest of the mixture
4) Bring a 2-3 glasses of water to boil in a sauce pan. Cover it with a stainless steel plate. Place a small stainless steel bowl on top of the plate and put about quarter of the chocolate pieces in it. Wait for it to melt. Heating the chocolate directly can burn it.
5) Pierce the marzipan ball with a tooth pick. Place it in the small container and cover it with chocolate. Once  completely covered, place it on a baking paper, remove the tooth pick and cover the hole with chocolate sauce. Allow it to dry. Do the same for the rest
