Crepini Cafe Crepes with Alouette Cheese

So, a couple times now you may have noticed me talking about Crepini Cafe‘s crepini, which aren’t quite a crepe and not quite a blini, but they’re filled and they taste good.  (You can check out my reviews for Crepini Cafe Greenwich Spinach and Four Cheese and Basil elsewhere on this fine blog.)  Well, I also asked to try just some of their crepes by themselves since I figure I’ll probably never own my own crepe cooking device.

However, I wanted to do something a bit more unResolution-y and so I got to thinking about ways to deliver the almonds and the chocolate.  My first thought was that I wanted to add a little marshmallow to my chocolate and almonds and make smores.  But that’s too simple, so then I started thinking crepes instead of graham crackers.

So in order to most deliciously snack on your chocolate and almonds, let’s make
