Microwave, uncovered, on 100 percent power (high) for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until chocolate melts, stirring every 30 seconds. Pour chocolate mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. Spread mixture evenly in a layer about 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle with the almonds; lightly press into chocolate mixture. Sprinkle evenly with salt.

  • Chill candy about 30 minutes or until firm. Use foil to lift candy. Cut or break into pieces.

Microwave, uncovered, on 100 percent power (high) for 1 to 2 minutes or until caramel melts, stirring every 30 seconds. Before sprinkling chocolate mixture with almonds, drizzle melted caramel over top. Chill as directed. Use a sharp knife to cut candy into pieces.
