If you're craving something sweet and salty, then these Sea Salt Cashew Turtles are calling your name. This homemade candy is so delicious and easy to make, people will think you bought it from a candy store!

What You'll Need:
  • 3/4 to 1 pound cashews
  • 1 (14-ounce) package caramels, unwrapped
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 (12-ounce) package milk chocolate chips (2 cups)
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable shortening
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
What To Do:
  1. Cover 2 baking sheets with wax paper and coat with cooking spray. Arrange cashews into 24 groups on the baking sheets.
     
  2. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt caramels with cream 5 to 7 minutes, or until smooth, stirring constantly. Immediately spoon caramel mixture over each nut group while still hot; reheat if caramel gets too thick.
     
  3. In another small saucepan over low heat,  melt chocolate chips with shortening 5 to 7 minutes, or until smooth, stirring constantly. Drizzle chocolate over caramel-covered nuts, evenly sprinkle with sea salt, and let stand until firm.
