Chocolate Cashew Toffee (LC)

August 29, 2018

Author Notes: So, who knew that Swerve could be melted and would caramelize like sugar does? Interesting. This basic recipe is straight from the Swerve web site and I adjusted it mainly according to my tastes by using some quality unsweetened chocolate and integrating nuts into the toffee layer. I used cashews instead of macadamias. I cut the final slab into smaller pieces than they did, so my serving size is smaller.Brian Coppola
