Filled with chocolate, caramel, and almonds in a variety of forms, this pie is a very easy to make treat that is easy on the host. The pie can be made well in advance as long as it is tightly wrapped and stored in the freezer. It makes a great pie to keep on hand for surprise guests, or to nibble on bit by bit over time.


2 pints softened chocolate caramel or chocolate ice cream
1 chocolate crumb pie crust
1/2 cup chopped chocolate caramel bars, divided
1/2 cup toasted chopped almonds, divided
1 1/2 cups thawed frozen whipped topping
4 ounces melted semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons caramel sauce
Additional melted chocolate or chocolate sauce (optional)
