1/3 c Vegetable oil
2 tb Water
1 1/2 c Semisweet chocolate chips, melted

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Finely chop almonds with food chopper. Reserve about 2 tablespoons almonds for garnish. Combine remaining almonds, cake mix, egg, oil and water in mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly. (Mixture will be dry) With small stainless steel scoop, drop dough 2 inches apart onto 13" baking stone. Bake 13-15 minutes or until tops are lightly browned. Cool 2 minutes on stone; remove to non-stick cooling rack. Cool completely. Place chocolate chips and oil in covered micro-cooker.
