LINE a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil; place crackers on prepared baking sheet 5 across and 6 down to form a 10 x 12-inch rectangle.

COMBINE butter, sugar and salt in 2-quart, heavy-duty saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon, until candy thermometer reaches 300° F (this should take about 20 minutes from the time you turn on the burner). It should be a rich, golden amber color. Remove from heat; immediately pour mixture over crackers. Sprinkle evenly with morsels. Let stand for 5 minutes. Spread melted morsels over toffee with metal spatula or back of spoon. Sprinkle with almonds.

COOL for 2 hours before breaking into 30 pieces. Store in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

REALLY Good Stuff

This is one of my all time favorite sweet recipes. I leave off the nuts (hate them) and these are still fabulous. Sometimes its a little difficult to spread the "buttersctoch" but still worth the effort.
