With wire whisk or electric hand beater, beat the egg whites with the water and sugar until just starting to stiffen.
Grate the chocolate.
In a bowl, combine the almonds with the sugar, chocolate, and cinnamon.
Add the egg white mixture and work it into these ingredients.
Sprinkle the work surface with sugar, place the dough on it, and roll out about 3/8 inch (1 cm) thick.
Cut out hearts and place them on a buttered baking sheet.
Allow to dry about 5-6 hours, or better yet, overnight.
Preheat the oven to 325°F. (160°C).
Bake the cookies on the center shelf 15 minutes.
Like the Cinnamon Stars, they should be crisp on the outside but remain quite soft on the inside.
