    List of Ingredients

    1 cup coconut cookie crumbs
    1/4 cup ground almonds
    1/4 cup (1/2 stick) melted butter
    1 envelope unflavored gelatin
    1/4 cup cold water
    2 packages (8 ounces each) soft-style cream cheese
    1 cup sugar
    1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    3/4 teaspoon almond extract
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 cup cold whipping cream, whipped


    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Prepare crust: In medium bowl, combine cookie crumbs, ground almonds
    and melted butter. Press mixture into 9-inch springform pan. Bake in
    preheated oven 7 minutes.

    In small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over water and let stand 1
    minute. Cook over low heat, stirring, until gelatin is dissolved,
    about 3 minutes.

    In separate bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy,
    about 2 to 3 minutes. Add cocoa, almond and vanilla extracts and
    gelatin mixture and beat until blended. Fold whipped cream into
    chocolate mixture. Pour over crust and refrigerate until firm, about
    6 hours. Makes 12 servings.
