    If you love chocolate and almonds, you'll love this! A very rich, decadent dessert I serve for special occasions. I imagine the leftovers could be frozen but, I'm not sure as there has never been any left over! Prep time does not include 3-5 hour chilling time.

      YUM!! Everybody loved it. I took the cheating way out of the crust though they had oreo cookie crumb crusts on sale. I think it would be lovely with a gramcracker crust as well, and maybe a tad bit less rich so I could enjoy a second slice without a major sugar rush!

      rave reviews all around!!... i made this for my dad who was coming home from a long trip asa welcome home surprise.. he LOVED it, as did everyone else!!! The only changes I made was that I used a total of 14oz chocolate chips (3/4c. instead of 1/2c. in the mousse) and i also used a 12oz container cool whip instead of the whipped cream. Thanks for such an awesome recipe!!

      My mom loved this!! It's chocolatey and silky. I found it a bit too sweet (no one else did, lol), so next time I will sub some unsweetened chocolate to cut down the sweetness. I made the "crust", but next time I probably won't, just the mousse is good enough. Thanks Dee!
