Stuffed Strawberries

I love this recipe. It is so easy and they look like they took all day to make. I got this recipe from Lucy!

1/4 cup sliced almonds
24 fresh strawberries
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
grated chocolate

Spread the almonds in a single layer on a baking sheet and toast AT 350 degrees for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Slice off the bottom tips of the strawberries and hollow out centers.

Beat the cream cheese, vanilla, and confectioners' sugar in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Spoon the cream cheese mixture into a piping bag fitted with a star tip and pipe into the strawberries. Arrange the strawberries on a serving platter and top each with an almond slice. Sprinkle with the grated chocolate.
