WARNING: These Flavored Cashews are Highly Addictive!
These Flavored Cashew are a super simple recipe that will be a big hit at any party! While this is a very easy recipe, the preparation of the cashews and then the slow cooking (or dehydration) of the cashews takes the most time.
If you already made the BBQ Vegetable Blend powder and the Masale Blend (Curry) powder (conveniently stored in a cool, dry place for you to try all these wonderful ZNF recipes), this recipe will be even easier for you!
