  1. Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C). Grease and flour two 9 x 5 x 3-inch pans. Add vanilla chips to a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH until melted, about 1 minute. Add almond extract and stir until smooth. In another microwave-safe bowl, add chocolate chips and microwave on HIGH until melted. Add vanilla and stir until smooth. Combine pound cake mix, water, eggs and melted butter. Beat for 3 minutes, then divide in half. To one bowl, add melted vanilla chips. Beat 1 minute then set aside. To the other bowl, add melted chocolate chips. Beat for 1 minute then set aside. Alternately pour batters into prepared pans and using a knife, swirl to create a marbled effect. Sprinkle with almonds. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until center is set. Cool in pans for 5 minutes then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
