Caramel Cashew Turtles

Makes 15-17 Caramel Cashew Turtles

Caramel Cashew Turtles

*1 cup Ghirardelli Dark Melting Wafers

*3/4 cup Melted Caramel, we like Peter’s (melt according to package directions)

*1 cup Cashew Pieces


*2 Silpats or Parchment Paper

*2  Half Baking Sheets

*2  Double Boilers or make double boilers by using sauce pans filled with about 1/4 to 1/3 full, adding glass bowls that will sit on top of the sauce pans making sure the water doesn’t touch the water when bowls are placed on to the top of the sauce pans.

Melt the caramel and dark wafers in two separate double boilers on medium low until melted. Stir as needed. When melted, on a Silpat coved 1/2 baking sheet start with the melted chocolate and space out a baking sheet like you would cookies 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons of the melted wafers. Then top with about 1 tablespoon of the cashews to each melted chocolate pile and then add about 1 tablespoon of melted caramel to the top of the cashews. Top with melted chocolate on the caramel turtles and then sprinkle with chopped nuts if desired. Repeat on a second Silpat covered baking sheet making the remaining caramel cashew turtles.

Serve or place in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
