This no-bake chocolate dessert from Rhonda Lanterman of Terrace, British Columbia has a tasty almond crust and smooth fluffy filling that's almost like a mousse. "It's so simple to make ahead of time and so delicious," she says.

"All I have to say is YUM-O! This was really easy to make. I added some almond extract to the cream cheese mixture. Before I figured this out I accidently added it to my melted chocolate and it ruined the texture of my chocolate. My family loved this so much I spooned the filling into small individual bowls and covered to let them set in the fridge - portion control!"

"I am going to make it and use Splenda in place of the sugar, low fat cream cheese and Dove sugar free chocolates. I have made these substitutes with many dessert recipes with success."

"For people watching fat, perhaps a fat free cream cheese could be used. Also artificial sweetener that you can bake with. Although it looks like you don't bake this. Also wonder if one could use the fat free or sugar free cool whip or store brand whipped topping for whipping cream. Some people would really frown at that, but fat people (like me) might like the idea if it would work."
