Rocky Road ice cream is a favorite flavor of many people. This delicious cream pie mimics the ice cream flavors. Add a chocolate cookie crumb crust and this dessert is a huge favorite.

The toasted almonds are a delicious addition to this homemade treat. It is easy to toast the almonds. Just heat a dry skillet over low heat. Add the almonds. Cook, stirring frequently until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Cool nuts completely before adding into mixture.

This recipe uses a store-bought, pre-made Oreo cookie pie crust. This shortcut helps to significantly reduce the dessert preparation time. If a totally homemade concoction is preferred, finely crush some Oreo cookies (about 1 1/2 cups or 20 to 22 cookies) and mix with 3 tablespoons of melted butter. Firmly press this crumb mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a Springform pan. Then, proceed with remaining recipe.
