Combine the almond butter, condensed milk, honey, cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of the salt, and the remaining untoasted sliced almonds in a large bowl. Using a rubber spatula, stir until evenly distributed. Pour into the prepared pan and smooth into an even layer.

Sprinkle the toasted almonds and the remaining 1 teaspoon salt over the mixture in the pan. refrigerate for 4 hours or until the fudge is set.

Gently remove the fudge from the pan and place it on a cutting board. Peel off the foil and cut into two-bite pieces.
