Cut the almond paste into dice, combine in a bowl with the powdered sugar, and half the butter, and beat until smooth.
The almond paste must be completely incorporated with the other ingredients.
Beat in the remaining butter, orange rind, and egg yolks.
Sift the flour over the mixture and beat it in as well.
Butter a baking sheet and sprinkle with flour.
Preheat the oven to 375°F. (190°C).
Spoon the dough into a pastry bag fitted with a plain tip and pipe strips in the shape of cats' tongue cookies (about 2-2 1/3 inches / 5-6 cm long) onto the baking sheet.
Be sure there is plenty of space in between, since the dough will spread.
Bake the cookies on the center shelf 10-12 minutes; remove with a spatula while still hot.
Spoon the marmalade into a paper cone.
Pipe it onto the underside of the cookies and attach them in pairs.
Temper the chocolate and dip the cookies halfway.
Carefully wipe off the excess on the rim of the bowl and allow to harden on parchment paper.
