Preheat your oven to 400 degrees at some point while doing the next several steps, based on how long your oven takes to preheat to that temperature.
Cover a cookie sheet (with sides) with foil, and then grease the foil. (I just use some cooking spray.)
Set out about a sleeve’s worth of Saltine crackers — salt side up. I can’t really fit a whole sleeve, except for that I break the last few and fit them in on the sides.
Prepare 1 cup of butter (two sticks), as you will be boiling it. To me, it is always easier when you cut them into pats of butter instead.
Plop them all into the sauce pan, and start melting them.
Add in 1 cup of packed brown sugar.
Once it starts to boil, make sure to just keep stirring constantly. You’ll want to let this mixture boil for about three minutes.
Once you’re done boiling the mixture, remove it from heat, and add in 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract.
Pour the mixture over your crackers.
Now, go ahead and make sure to spread (using a spoon or the like) over the whole pan of crackers.
As long as your oven has preheated by this point, you will pop this pan into the oven and bake it for about 4 – 6 minutes.
While the crackers and mixture are baking, you will be busy breaking up chocolate bars.
Once the time is up, pull your pan out of the oven.
