Amish Cashew Crunch

by 247tasty

A nice sweet treat after a greasy lunch. I remember my grandma making this amazing dessert. This is her favorite dessert to prepare. I can’t blame her because we all love it. My sisters and I always craved it. We used to sneak out of the house to go to our grandma’s house. We would eat and spend the whole weekend there. Of course, our mom let us because she knew that grandma could use the company. She lived alone and what gives her joy is when her grandkids visit her. one Saturday, she taught us how to make this delicious treat. We all gathered in the kitchen and witnessed her do her thing and it was awesome! She knew how to work around the kitchen. We all learned a lot that day. Now that I am married and have two wonderful kids, I always find time to teach my children to cook. Whether it’s a simple or difficult dish, I let them try it so they’d know how to appreciate the foods they eat. To my grams, I love you, and thank you for everything!
