These were simple and tasty. After reading the other reviews, I toasted the nuts separately for a few minutes, and then finished them up on the stove top. It worked pretty well. Nice salty honey flavor. Thanks alligirl for sharing. Made for Football Pool - week 4. Congrats again on your win!!

These were tasty. Very simple to make too. I did have problems with the carmelized sauce and had to take it out of the oven after 10 minutes so that it didn't burn. I'll probably roast the cashews before coating them in the sauce when I make these in the future. Roasting the cashews on the stove might also work. Thanks!
