Velvet almond fudge pie

This is an extraordinary pie — incredibly chocolatey, incredibly rich, with the delectable crunch of almonds.

What makes this pie so deliciously chocolatey and so extraordinarily rich is the delicious chocolate flavor you bake in with Jell-O brand chocolate fudge flavor pudding and pie filling and chocolate chips. And you bake in the delicious crunch of Blue Diamond almonds, too.
