A couple of weeks ago I went to an FRG (Family Readiness Group) ice cream social.  I'm not a HUGE lover of ice cream (although every other person in my house is), but these little guys caught my eye.  Before I knew it I had eaten 4 of them.  Seriously.  FOUR!  After asking around I found the person that made them and begged her for the recipe (OK, not much begging going on, I simply ask and received) and now I am going to share this insanely easy recipe it with you...

40 saltine crackers
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup butter
2 cups or 1 package semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips (pick your favorite!)

Preheat oven to 350. 
Spread almonds on baking sheet and toast in oven for 3-5 minutes.  (Keep an eye on them!)
Line a cookie sheet with foil
In a saucepan melt butter on stovetop. Once the butter is melted add sugars and stir till smooth.
Pour butter mixture over crackers, making sure to cover EVERY cracker!
Top with almonds...make sure you have almonds on every cracker!
Bake for 10-15 minutes or until toffee (sugars and butter) bubbles!
This picture was taken after 6 minutes, just starting to bubble....
Remove from oven, sprinkle with chocolate chips.  Let sit for 2 minutes while the chocolate chips start to melt... once chocolate chips are nice and shiny (after 2 minutes) spread the chocolate to cover all crackers!
Let sit for hours and hours until chocolate hardens, unless you are like me and can't wait, then stick them in the freezer for 15 minutes to speed up the process.  Break or cut apart and devour!!
