  • Pour half-and-half into large bowl. Add pudding mixes, ginger and cinnamon; beat with wire whisk 2 minutes or until well blended. Let stand 5 minutes. Gently stir in 2 cups of the whipped topping.

  • Layer 1/2 of the gingerbread cubes, fruit mixture and pudding mixture in large serving bowl. Repeat layers. Top with the remaining 1 cup whipped topping. Cover.

  • Refrigerate at least 1 hour or until ready to serve. Sprinkle with almonds just before serving. Store leftover dessert in refrigerator.
