These nutty, chocolate-covered sweets are very fast to make.
Cover a large plate with waxed paper. Fill a small saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Fit a glass bowl into the saucepan to form a double boiler. Add the chocolate to the bowl and turn off the water. Rest the chocolate for 5 minutes until it melts. Stir well. Dip one of the cashews into the chocolate and place on the plate covered with wax paper. Repeat. After you have about 5 cashews coated, sprinkle with a pinch of the sea salt. Repeat with remaining cashews and salt. Transfer to the fridge to chill 1 hour until firm, then serve.

For Vata: Swap the cashews for almonds.

For Kapha: When kaphas are out of balance they should avoid nuts, but if you’re feeling well, enjoy!
