Transfer the melted chocolate to a small plastic freezer bag. Close the bag and cut the tip off one end of the bag. Place strawberries on a plate lined with parchment or foil. Drizzle chocolate in a zigzag motion over strawberries by squeezing chocolate down in the bag. Sprinkle strawberries with crushed almonds.
Cool in refrigerator for at least 15 minutes, or until chocolate is set.
