Remove from heat, stir in chocolate with whisk until smooth. Add butter and almond extract; continue whisking until smooth. Stir in caramelized almonds. Cool slightly to thicken.

Recipe Tips

- Dark chocolate is available in bars in the baking aisle of the supermarket. For an even darker chocolate flavor, use 3 ounces unsweetened bittersweet chocolate and 3 ounces dark sweetened chocolate.

- Sauce can be used over ice cream or as a fondue dip for dried fruit, marshmallows and cookies.
