Welcome to Day #12 of Chocolate and Cashew Theme Week.

Today's cashews—wholes, halves and bits—were encased in a crunchy sweet, toffee-like caramelized coating, and covered in chocolate.

These Chocolate Caramelized Cashews with Sea Salt were from California Sungold Pistachios (Oakhurst, CA).

I couldn't really taste the chocolate or the cashew (a very mild flavored nut to begin with), as the sugar level of the caramelization was quite high—even with a hint of sea salt that helped balance the sugar.

These would be great if you were craving a toffee or sweet snack with slightly layered texture and flavor.

There is a different "Goldilocks" chocolate for each of us. What's too sweet for me as an adult, might be just right for someone else.
