Recipe for
 Homemade
Cashew Turtles

Ingredients:

I bag Caramels
Can of cashew bits and halves
Candy coating chocolate

How To:
Remove wrappers from caramels and place in saucepan with 2 tbsp water
Heat caramels until melted stirring frequently
Add about 11/2-2 cups cashews.

Some of them will run but that's OK..
you can fix it later
If you caramel starts to get too sticky, simply re warm it a bit
one you have all of your caramel and cashew clumps on you cookie sheets
refrigerate for at least 30min to 1hr
right before pulling out you caramel bits, melt your chocolate
After removing the caramels from the fridge
you should be able to lift them off the sheet
you may have some with excess caramel around the edges, fold this over
did your caramels into the chocolate and place it back onto the cookie sheets
refrigerate again for 30min to an hour

(they soften as they warm up)

store the turtles in an airtight container.
If your house tends to be excessively warm i suggest you keep these in the fridge

My husband loves cashews (I'm more of a peanut girl) and I bet he'd flip if I made him these. They look great!

Also I just read 1/2 your blog and you have a new follower. Love it!
