Substitutions or variations
You could substitute the cashews with almonds, peanuts, pecans or any of your favorite nuts. I do recommend using unsalted, uncooked nuts.
If you don't have coconut oil, or prefer you could substitute with butter or a dairy free butter if needed.
Cayenne pepper is optional, but I love a little spice with the sweet and salty flavor profile.
