Make fudge: In second medium saucepan, combine both semi sweet and milk chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk.  Heat until chips are melted.  Remove from heat and add vanilla.

Spray 8 x 8 baking dish with pan spray.  Spread half of the fudge mixture in pan.  Spread filling mixture over fudge.  Sprinkle filling mixture with half of the toasted almonds.  Spread remaining fudge over filling and almonds.  Spread remaining almonds over top, pressing into fudge lightly as necessary.
