Thanks for saving me. I had a batch of caramel that didn't quite make it. It would solidify but then, like a non-Newtonian fluid, the minute I cut it, it would slowly ooze into a solid mass again. But there was a can of cashews in the house and this recipe. A lovely soft, velvety texture with just a hint of caramel and the occasional crunch of cashews.
