This is exactly the recipe I was looking for! At one time we had a number of Amish families in our area, and they sold Cashew Crunch at their home bakery and at several stores in the area. I am planning a candy making demonstration, and wanted to include a Cashew Crunch recipe. This is it! It is buttery with a nice crunch, not sticky or too tough. It would make a fabulous hostess gift or addition to a gift basket. Heck, it's good anytime.
- 1 cup sugar
