2. Heat an 8-inch nonstick skillet or seasoned crepe pan over medium-high heat until a drop of water dances on the surface. Add enough of the remaining 4 teaspoons butter (about ½ teaspoon per crepe) to lightly coat the skillet, adding more as necessary to fry all 8 crepes.

4. Make the filling: In a food processor, place the cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and almond extract and blend until smooth.
5. To serve, place each of the 8 crepes on a dessert plate and spread 2 tablespoons of filling in the center of each and then fold it in half. Drizzle each crepe with 2 tablespoons of the chocolate sauce. Serve immediately.
