Refrigerate remaining sauce. With ice cream scoop, place about 1/2 cup ice cream over each indentation. Cover each cake and ice cream mound completely with 3/4 cup topping mixture. Freeze at least 2 hours or until firm.
  • 4 To serve, refrigerate desserts for 30 minutes or let stand at room temperature for 5 to 10 minutes to soften slightly. Spoon remaining raspberry sauce evenly onto 4 individual dessert plates. Top with desserts. Sprinkle each with 2 tablespoons almonds. Store in freezer.
