- Cool completely on a wire rack, about 1 hour, before cutting into bars.
Delicious! My cashews weren't salted, but I'd like to try them with salted cashews as well, to see what CB is talking about. These were super easy and quick, too! I sprinkled the top with icing sugar, which was a pretty touch. Thanks for posting, Syd!
Fabulously rich and so absolutely sinful. Who wouldn't like the taste of salty sweet and especially if the salty is cashews. What a great find:-) Made for MarketTag.
These are wonderful! Love cashews so I knew these couldn't disappoint. Made just as stated. Thanks for sharing! Made for Gimme 5 tag.
