SALTED CASHEW & CARAMEL CHEWS

Saw these in a magazine and started salivating! Only thing I would change is go from semi-sweet to milk chocolate, as that is my preference. Also, you could use regular salted butter if that's all you have and then skip the extra salt. Cashews will be plenty salty too.
