a chocolate mousse taste - a hit whenever i have brought it to potlucks

Ingredients Nutrition

  • i baked pie shell, Oronoque Orchards has a good one in the freezer section
  • 1 (12 ounce) cartonregular Cool Whip (the smaller size)
  • 1 large bar of hershey's chocolate bar with almonds
  • 12 cup slivered almonds

Directions

  1. bake single pie crust and cool.
  2. thaw cool whip and add in slivered almonds to taste [i add a LOT to give this SOME nutritional value - and the crunch is nice].
  3. melt hersheys chocolate bar in a bowl placed over very hot, simmering water in a pan.
  4. let the melted chocolate cool slightly and then fold it into the cool whip. ?Fold in also 1/4 cup of the slivered almonds [these add a complementary crunch AND more nutrition].
  5. spatula the filling into the pie crust.
  6. top with remaining 1/4 cup slivered almonds along the rim of the pie crust and or you can also add whole almonds for decoration.
  7. refrigerate a few hours or overnight.
  8. this is VERY rich - a small piece goes a long way -- .
