Our yummy Cashew Turtles are so easy to make and pack the pleasing contrast of smooth caramel and crunchy nuts. You can't go wrong with these mouthwatering treats!

What You'll Need:
  • 3/4 to 1 pound cashew nuts
  • 1 (14-ounce) package caramels, unwrapped
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 (11-ounce) package milk chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable shortening
What To Do:
  1. Cover 2 rimmed baking sheets with waxed paper and coat with cooking spray. Arrange the cashew nuts into 24 groups on rimmed baking sheets.
     
  2. In a small saucepan, melt caramels with cream over low heat for 5 to 7 minutes, or until smooth, stirring constantly. Spoon caramel mixture over each nut group quickly while still hot (reheat if caramel gets too thick).
     
  3. In another small saucepan, melt chocolate chips with shortening over low heat for 5 to 7 minutes, or until smooth, stirring constantly. Drizzle chocolate over caramel and nuts and let stand until firm, or refrigerate 15 minutes.

Salted or unsalted nuts?

Your choice! Some people love the sweet/salty taste, others do not.

I would like to try with pecans

Can butter be used instead of shortening?

I wouldn't.

Heavy Cream is any heavy cream. I prefer Land O'Lakes

I also would like to know what kind of cream is used in this recipe for Cashew Turtles?

Look for whipping cream in the dairy section.

what kind of cream do yu use to make this treat

I will use heavy whipping cream or 1/2 &1/2. Depends how many calories I want that day. :)
