This Is How I Did It

In a sauce pan melt the butter slowly. Add in the sugar and slowly turn the tempature up. Stir or whisk in the cream, vanilla and salt to taste. Continue to whisk the mixture until it thickens. Turn up the heat slightly if the mixture hasn’t thickened within 6 minutes or so.

Add the coconut and cashew pieces and continue to stir as the liquid turns to a thick caramel. Remove from the heat and putimg_1836 the caramel mixture into a bowl and place it in the freezer to cool.
Melt the dark chocolate in the microwave :20 seconds at a time as to not over heat.

Once the chocolate is melted and the caramel has cooled and hardened. Scoop the caramel into balls and dunk them into the melted chocolate.

Place the balls onto a piece of baking parchment paper or a cookie sheet. Sprinkle with a coarse
ea salt or the remainder of cashew pieces and place back in the freezer for 10 or so minutes until the caramels have set.

These are adorable in a bowl at parties, popped into school lunches
or just for a low sugar snack! Enjoy
