You will find a full printable recipe card at the bottom of this post but here’s a look at what you’ll need.

  • 2 cups cashews
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (or coconut oil)

That’s it! Just three simple ingredients! 

How to Make Chocolate Covered Cashews

Place a piece of wax paper on a cookie sheet and set aside. 

Place the chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl. Add the tablespoon of oil. 

Heat in 30-second increments, stirring between them, until chocolate is melted. Mine took 2 minutes total. You want a smooth, creamy melted chocolate. 

Pour the cashews into the chocolate and stir until well coated. 

Spoon clusters of the candy onto the waxed paper.

Place the tray into the refrigerator so the candy can firm up. 

Serve and enjoy!

Store in an airtight container in a cool place. You can refrigerate them if you like. They can be frozen and eaten later.
