position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 400°. In a small pan over low heat, melt the butter with the sugar and 1 teaspoon salt, stirring. Put the almonds in mixing bowl, scrape the butter mixture into the bowl and toss thoroughly to coat.
Scrape the almonds and anything remaining in the bowl onto a large rimmed baking sheet. Spread evenly. Roast until fragrant and darkened to a Rich Brown, 11 to 13 minutes. Any exposed almond meat should be a deep golden color. Be sure not to under cook. Remove from the oven and drizzle with a little of the olive oil and toss with 1 teaspoon salt.
Let cool completely. They will get crunchier as they cool. Scrape the almonds and all the contents of the pan, there will be some yummy brown stuff, into an airtight container and store in refrigerator for a week to 10 days. Makes about 2 1/4 cups
