Blanch almonds in boiling water and peel off the husk. Grind them with 2 tablespoons of sugar in a processor. Work butter using a fork, add the remaining sugar and the egg yolks, then whisk well. Fold in the ground almonds, the flour and the cornstarch. Beat the egg whites in a mixer until soft peaks form and then fold into the almond mixture.
Then pour mixture in a buttered bundt pan or dome-shaped cake mold and bake at 450 °F, for 45 minutes. Let the parrozzo cool.
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler and once the parrozzo has cooled, spread the chocolate sauce over the whole surface. Allow the chocolate to set before cutting.
