Dark Chocolate Covered Cashews #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone,

Today for #SundaySupper we are celebrating National Grandparents Day.  My Grandparents are no longer with us, but I do have a few memories of them.  I remember visiting them in Orchard Park, NY in their red house and my Grandfather worked in construction. He would come home from work with his yellow hard hat and sit in his chair and crack nuts.  I remember a big bowl of nuts and a nut cracker.  I loved cracking them, but I didn’t like eating them.  I actually thought walnuts tasted horrible.  What’s funny is that I love them now.  My Grandmother knew I didn’t love nuts so one day she took me to the mall and had me try chocolate covered nuts.  Then I fell in love.  I don’t recall what kind of nuts, but they tasted good.  In memories of my Grandmother and Grandfather I made chocolate covered cashews.  I think my Grandma would be proud.

They nuts taste amazing! But I will admit they are easy to make but a little bit hard to keep them separated. I used roasted salted cashews and Dark Chocolate melting wafers. Those are the only ingredients you need. Pretty easy and makes for a great gift.
Since the weather was warm out, I chilled my chocolate covered nuts in the refrigerator. That makes for easy separating. The only problem is when you chill chocolate it gets a grayish color. If you can let them cool naturally on the counter, you will have shiny chocolate. A bit of advise, don’t make them when it’s 90 degrees out.
