My first attempt for this recipe was with margarine since I also need to limit my dairy intake.  I highly recommend that you use butter when making this recipe.  The margarine version was edible but did not measure up so I did not even save pictures!

For my second attempt I started by dumping some butter into a small sauce pan.

Adding the butter.

Then I melted the butter over medium heat.  When it had melted I dumped in some brown sugar.

I stirred the brown sugar and melted butter together until they came to a boil.

Without stirring I let the mixture boil for 2 1/2 minutes.

While the sauce boiled I lined a 10×15 inch cookie sheet with Schar Gluten Free Crackers.  I made sure to cover the whole pan breaking crackers when necessary.

After laying out the crackers I spread some sliced almonds evenly on top of them.

I then slowly and carefully spooned the sauce over the crackers so that the almonds remained in place.

Spreading the sauce over the crackers.

Now I put the pan in a preheated 400F oven for 6 to 7 minutes.  Be careful not to let it burn.

While the cookies were baking I melted some semi-sweet chocolate chipits in the microwave.

Then I removed the pan from the oven.

After letting it cool for one minute I sliced it into squares.  I then allowed it to cool for another 10 minutes before slicing again and transferring them to a cooling rack.
