Happy Valentine’s Day! Sorry for the silences this week, but don’t worry, I’m back! And boy do I ever have a great recipe for you today. Try these chocolate covered cashews as soon as possible. They are easy to make and taste SO delicious. If you need a last minute (really last minute) Valentine’s gift these are perfect, or just as great for any other day of the week.
Salted Caramel Chocolate Covered Cashews
3 oz semi sweet chocolate
8 Medjool dates
1/2 cup raw unsalted cashews
Fill a small pot with about 1 inch of water and heat until boiling. Reduce to low heat and place a heat-safe bowl on top. Add chocolate into bowl and melt, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, pit the dates and halve each one, and then cut each half into thirds (so you’ll have 6 pieces from each date).
Take a piece of date and wrap around a cashew and then dip it in the melted chocolate. Mix around to make sure the cashew is coated in chocolate. Place a layer of aluminum foil on a cookie sheet and place chocolate-dipped cashew onto it. Sprinkle with sea salt. Continue until all cashews are dipped.
Place the tray in the freezer for about 15 minutes or until ready to serve. Yum!
