  1. 30 individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped {about 8 ounces}
  2. 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  3. 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  4. 1 1/2 cup
  5. salted cashews, coarsely chopped
  6. 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  7. 2 teaspoons vegetable shortening
  1. 1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
  2. 2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine caramels and cream. While stirring constantly, heat mixture until caramels are fully melted. Remove pan from heat.
  3. 3. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the vanilla and cashews until they are thoroughly mixed into the melted caramels.
  4. 4. Spray a small or medium cookie scoop with non-stick cooking spray and scoop the caramel-cashew mixture 2 inches apart onto the prepared pan. If you prefer a more symmetrically shaped cluster, use your fingers to mold this caramel. Repeat with rest of mixture.
  5. 5. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate and shortening until smooth stirring every 30 seconds or so.
  6. 6. Drizzle melted chocolate over clusters. See recipe notes for storage information.
