"We were friends for a year, and then he busted out with the crepes and ... now we've been together for two years," Dawson said. "He got me with the crepes!"

First, toast almonds following the directions below.
How to Toast Almonds: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cover a baking sheet with tin foil. Spread almonds in a single layer on baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes, stirring at least 3 times so that almonds toast evenly and do not burn. For a picture and step-by-step instructions, see How to Toast Almonds.
Next, make chocolate sauce. Refrigerate for 10 minutes or until you can drizzle it easily.
Combine softened cheese, sugar, and almond extract. Mix well to combine. Fold in sliced strawberries.
Assemble crepes: Lay first crepe on a flat working surface. Spread with ¼ cup of the strawberry-almond-cheese mixture and fold in half (in a semi-circle) and in half once more to form a triangle. Garnish with a drizzle of chocolate sauce, sliced almonds and an extra berry on top if you wish.
