Have you ever been to Disneyland? They make these delicious cashew caramel bears that can be found in Pooh Corner and other candy stores. I’m hooked and every time I go, I have to stop and buy about sevenTEEN of these little babies. Since I don’t get to Disneyland every year, I decided to make my own. These are perfect treats to take to neighbors and friends for the holidays. Read below.
-a box wrapped in linen
-milk chocolate chips
-cookie sheet covered in wax paper
Melt 1/2 of your chocolate chips and spread out in small circles on wax paper. Let cool. I placed my cookie sheet outside so the chocolate would set faster. In a small microwaveable bowl, melt caramels and 1/3 cup of evaporated milk. Stir every 30 seconds. Once the first layer of chocolate is set, drop a spoonful of melted caramel on top. Sprinkle with cashews. Let set. Melt second 1/2 of chocolate chips and spread on top of each circle. Let set and then package.
I wrapped a few boxes in linen and then filled with caramel-colored tissue paper. These are such easy holiday treats. I’m ashamed to say I had an undisclosed amount before giving these to our neighbors. I pray you have more self control than I do.
