Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with foil, leaving about 1 inch of foil extending over the ends of pan. Coat foil with cooking spray, set aside.
In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla, and almond extract. Stir in dry ingredients and candy-coated pieces until combined.
Pat dough into the bottom of the prepared pan. Lightly press remaining candy on top of the dough.
Bake about 30 minutes or until edges are browned and center is set. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Use foil to lift uncut bars from pan. Remove foil and cut into bars.
