    I found this recipe searching for one to use up some cashews. Yummy blonde brownie! If you like a sweet/salty dessert - this is it. Sweet and chewy caramels, and crunchy cashews - a great combo.

    I made these for a get together and everyone wanted the recipe. They are a nice change from ordinary brownies.
