Incredibly rich. Very easy to make. The taste is mouth-watering and addicting. I gave this 4-stars however because of the texture and consistency. Either I did not use the correct pan size or my proportions were off because the consistency did not turn out how I expected. It was soft and there were not enough cashews...certain portions of the pan were just sugar/butter solidified. (I like another reviewer expected a brittle. Ended up taking their suggestion and refridgerated for a few minutes.)
Very Good! I used a candy thermometer and brought it up to about 305. It was very crunchy! I would stir more often than suggested though. I had to stir almost constantly to keep the cashews from burning.
This was amazing. My husband and son couldn't get enough of it. We bought some cashew crunch from the local Amish store and this was exactly the same. Thanks so much. I will definitely be making this again.
I've been making this Cashew Crunch for several years now. However I only use 1 cup of sugar and 2 cups of cashews. I melt the butter sugar and corn syrup and bring it to 290 degrees. Then quickly add the cashews and spread on the baking sheet. Use 2 forks to spread thin and you have to work quick! Delish!
WONDERFUL!! I don't trust candy thermometers-so I use the cold water test. I also put it in the fridge while it cools (mostly to keep my children from putting their fingers in it) have never had a problem with it turning out chewy as other reveiwers have. This is a wonderful recipe and VERY ADDICTIVE!! Thanks Nat!
I used the cold water test along with the thermometer and it still came out soft. After 10 minutes I put it in the fridge for an hour and it hardened up a bit...but no where near the amount for it to be called a crunch. Other than that it's absolutely delicious and everyone loved it. I just called it a Cashew Melt-in-your-mouth instead.
Tasted great. Like others have posted though it wasn't a crunch. It was chewy. I even put it in the fridge like another poster suggested. Maybe it needs to be heated to a higher temp? I'll try that next time.
