Serves 12 | Prep Time | Cook Time


2 cups crushed vanilla wafers
1 cup finely chopped almonds, toasted
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup milk
2 pkgs. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 to 1 teaspoon almond extract
1 pkg. (11.5 oz.) milk chocolate chips, melted and cooled
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
milk chocolate kisses
unblanched whole almonds
additional whipped cream

In a bowl, combine the wafer crumbs, almonds and sugar; stir in butter. Press onto the bottom and 1-3/4-in. up the sides of a greased 9-in. springform pan. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

In a small saucepan, soften gelatin in milk; let stand for 5 minutes. Cook and stir over medium heat until gelatin is dissolved. Cool to room temperature, about 6 minutes. In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sour cream and almond extract until smooth. Beat in melted chocolate and gelatin mixture. Fold in whipped cream. Spoon into crust. Cover and chill for 6 hours or overnight.

Just before serving, run a knife around the edge of pan to loosen. Remove sides of pan. Garnish with chocolate kisses, almonds and additional whipped cream. Refrigerate leftovers.
