Best holiday treats ever

Our family has a bunch of recipes for squares, cookies, etc that we tend to make around the holidays. The best one by far is the almond caramel square. I don't know a specific name for these delicious goodies but we had a guest over last night who was convinced they are known by a particular name. If you know it, pass it on.

Almond caramel square thingies

1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 box graham cracker squares
1 cup sliced almonds

Line a 9x13 cookie pan with parchment paper. Lay out graham crackers in the pan tightly so no room is left around or between squares. Sprinkle almonds evenly over squares. In a small saucepan melt the butter. Add the brown sugar and vanilla and stir constantly over medium heat until the mixture is smooth and the butter is all incorporated. Be careful not to burn it at this stage. Pour the caramel evenly over the almond squares. You have a little wiggle room to push the caramel around after pouring but try not to move the almonds around as well. All the squares should be covered. Bake in a 350 C oven for 8 to 10 minutes. They will be gooey and bubbly when they come out. Let cool for ten minutes then pull the parchment and the squares off the pan onto a flat surface. Using a knife or a pizza cutter, cut into squares (along the graham squares if you can see them or arbitrarily works too.

Oh. so. good!
