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.
