  • Preheat oven to 325°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside

  • Place almonds, 1 cup of the sugar, cinnamon and cloves in food processor; cover. Process just until nuts are finely ground. Add chocolate; cover. Process until chocolate is finely grated, but not melted. Add egg whites and kirsch; cover. Process just until dough clings together

  • Place remaining 1/4 cup sugar in small bowl. Shape dough into 1-inch balls (dough will be sticky). Roll balls in sugar to coat. Place about 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Using the bottom of a glass, flatten balls to about 1/4-inch thickness

  • Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until tops are set but centers remain moist. Do not overbake. Cool on baking sheets 1 minute. Remove to wire racks; cool completely
