Stir in vanilla, amaretto (if desired) and almond extract. Pour chocolate mixture into six small heatproof cups or pots de creme cups. Cover with foil and chill for 2 hours or overnight or until set.
Prepare the Whipped Coffee-Almond Topping: In a small bowl, stir together amaretto, vanilla, coffee powder and almond extract, stirring until coffee dissolves. Fold in frozen light whipped dessert topping, thawed.
Spoon the topping onto individual servings. If desired, sprinkle with shaved chocolate.
