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.

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped

Directions

  1. Set aside 1 tablespoon almonds for garnish. Chop remaining almonds; sprinkle into a greased 9-in. springform pan. In a microwave, melt chocolate; stir until smooth. Cool slightly.
  2. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over cold water; let stand for 1 minute. Cook and stir over low heat until gelatin is completely dissolved. Beat into cream cheese mixture. Beat in melted chocolate until smooth. Fold in whipped cream.
  3. Pour into prepared pan. Sprinkle with reserved almonds. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
