Chocolate

We use dark chocolate in this recipe as this balances out the sweetness of the cashews perfectly. You can also use milk chocolate if you prefer, but this will definitely make for an even sweeter treat.

Nuts

Of course, we’re using cashews! This is because a cashew is a sweeter, softer nut. You can substitute cashews for any nut that you prefer - you can’t really go wrong with nuts and chocolate!

Sea Salt

We like to sprinkle some sea salt on top of the chocolate right at the end - just before the chocolate completely hardens. The sea salt really elevates the recipe and all the components work perfectly together. This is optional, but we definitely recommend it.

How can I store chocolate covered cashews?

Store the chocolate covered cashews in an airtight container in a cool place, dry place for up to six months.
