Line a large baking pan with foil; line the foil with parchment paper. Arrange crackers in pan; set aside. In a large heavy saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in brown sugar. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 3-4 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Spread evenly over crackers.
Bake at 350 degrees F. for 15-17 minutes (cover loosely with foil if top browns too quickly). Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Stir in almonds; spread over top.
Cool for 1 hour. Break into pieces. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until set. Store in an airtight container.

Mix all together in a skillet, cook over medium heat until caramelized. Pour out onto greased foil in a sweeping motion and let cool. Break into pieces and enjoy. Cooking time is about 5 minutes.
