Almond Dragees

Cook 8 oz. sugar in 4 oz. water, with 1 tsp. lemon juice. When it begins to caramelize, add 2 lbs almonds. Stir to coat. Then add 2 T. butter. Spread on cookie sheets in a single layer, cool.
Melt chocolate, I used two bags of chips. I put in about 3/4 of the chips, then when they were melted, added the last bit of chips.
Using a third of the chocolate each time, put the nuts in a bowl, add chocolate, stir. put on a cookie sheet to cool Repeat for a total of 3 times. After the last time, coat with powdered sugar and cocoa.
