Cashew burfi

READY IN: 21mins
Top Review by fluffernutter

I really love cashews, and these are great with a cup of tea especially. Cut the sweets in small pieces, because they are rich. I especially appreciate the microwave directions, as I usually make the sugar syrup on the stovetop, but my kitchen is very hot in warm weather.
