Ingredients

1 cup vegetable shortening
*
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
unsweetened
2 cups sugar
4 large eggs
beaten
2 tablespoons amaretto liqueur
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 Handful almonds
sliced, or walnuts or hazelnuts, chopped
*
Amaretto frosting
¼ cup butter
or margarine
2 tablespoons light cream (half&half)
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate
unsweetened
1 dash salt
*
2 ½ cups powdered sugar
sifted
2 tablespoons amaretto liqueur

Directions

Combine shortening (Crisco butter-flavored is good, or I've used margarine to be cholesterol-conscious) and chocolate in heavy saucepan; place over low heat, stirring constantly, until combined.

Remove from heat and cool.

Stir in eggs and amaretto.

Combine flour and salt; add to creamed mixture, stirring well.

Pour batter into a lightly greased 13 x 9 x 2 inch king pan.

Bake at 400℉ (200℃) for 20 minutes; cool.

Frost with Amaretto frosting, sprinkle with sliced almonds (or arrange in flowery patterns).

Cut into squares.

Note: 3 Tablespoons powdered baking cocoa can be substituted for chocolate squares.

Combine butter and chocolate in a heavy saucepan; place over low heat and stir constantly until melted.

Stir in half and half.

Add powdered sugar, salt, Amaretto, stirring until smooth.
