My Canadian grandma makes these every year for Christmas. She lives in the States now and has to have the Roger's syrup shipped to her, but plain white granulated sugar can be used instead.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Cook's Note

White granulated sugar can be used if golden syrup is unavailable.

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! Read More
