These rustic, yummy, cashew candy bars inspired by Ghanaian Nkatie cakes are quite simple to make with only three ingredients yet turn out even better!
Cashews are my husbands’ favorite nut. For someone who is not a picky eater, he has been pretty consistent on his feelings about Nkatie cake (which translates to peanut cake); he prefers them with cashews, and could care less about the original peanut version. So this recipe is especially dedicated to him. The original Nkatie cakes originating from Ghana are made with peanuts, but I substituted peanuts with cashews (because of you know who), in this recipe and came up with these cashew crunch candy bars. They turn out even better than the original in my opinion, so I guess he is onto something here.
