My sister in law left this recipe when her and my brother got divorced.This was the only thing that she made that was good ! lol! .I want to experiment with this recipe but use chocolate instead.I think that would be goodChocolate pudding in the cake and frosting,with the almonds on top.

My SIL was a horrible cook,that's why my brother started cooking. He said if he wanted to eat he would have to do the cooking.Twenty years have passed and I have to say my brother is a fantastic cook!

Now you have me....with the chocolate pudding.

I think it would taste great.  I like pistachio but the almonds play so well with chocolate.
This will be one to try.
