PUDDING MIX IS USED DRY DO NOT MAKE AS PER PACKAGE DIRECTIONS
Beat softened cream cheese with 1/4 cup of the milk. Beat until smooth.
Add the remaining milk and chocolate pudding mix. Beat for 1 minute.
Fold in HALF the tub of whipped topping (no need to measure, by your eye is fine)
Divide half the chocolate mixture between 4 parfait glasses or old fashioned glasses (stemless red wine glasses work well too)
Place 2 tbs of the toasted almonds on top of the chocolate mixture in each glass.
Divide remaining whipped topping between the 4 glasses making a layer of plain whipped topping.
Top each glass with the remaining chocolate mixture and garnish with mini chocolate chips if desired and drizzle with chocolate sauce if desired.
