I love sweetened condensed milk.  Don't you?

This recipe is for up to 20 people, not just one -- you would seriously get sick.  This dessert is super easy.  There's no baking, and no standing over a stove either.  It can be made ahead of time and kept in the freezer for up to about 2 months, so it is great for parties, impromptu guests, or those harried days when the whole family is screaming for dinner.

Chocolate Almond Velvet
2 pints whipping cream
1 can chocolate syrup
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped almonds

Combine cream, chocolate, milk and extract in a mixing bowl and beat until stiff peaks form.  Fold in almonds.  Spread into a 13"x9"x2" dish.  Cover and freeze for a minimum of 4 hours, until firm.  Remove from freezer 5 minutes before serving.
