Directions

  1. Lightly spray a 9x13 inch baking dish with butter flavored cooking spray. Arrange chopped cashews in the bottom of dish.
  2. Combine brown sugar, golden syrup, sweetened condensed milk, and butter in a large, heavy bottomed saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Do not stir once the sugar syrup begins to boil. Heat to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a rigid ball.
  3. Pour caramel over top of cashews. Stir well. Use a heatproof rubber spatula to spread the mixture evenly in the dish; allow to cool for 1 hour. Cut cooled caramel into squares or roll into balls as desired.

Oh Yay ... I found a recipe that no one has tried. These are delicious. I chopped my cashews into smaller pieces and cooked them just below 250 degrees and they taste like caramel-y pralines only with cashews. They are wonderful ... I would recommend this recipe to anyone who likes a little sweet & salty taste now and again!
