I ate a whole handful of these chocolate covered cashews the day before I had to go on my yoga cleanse, and they’re super amazing! These will definitely be made in big batches in three weeks. In the meantime, I’m going to be staring at these delicious morsels. And as long as you remember to eat them in moderation (who am I kidding) they’re on the healthy side of desserts!
These took me about 20 minutes to put together and another 20 to harden in the fridge. I decided to melt the chocolate in a bowl over boiling water instead of a microwave. There’s no particular reason, but this way you don’t have to worry about burning the chocolate. You do want to make sure that no water gets in the chocolate. The water will ruin the chocolate. I just mixed the nuts in the same bowl and then laid them out on a silicone mat. To be extra fancy, I topped half of them with salt and all of them with granulated sugar.
Sunday was my first yoga teacher training class and it was both exciting and nerve-wracking. We start with some meditation, and then do the Ashtanga practice, and then we got a chance at leading a class. That last bit was the nerve-wracking part. Getting comfortable guiding people into poses when you’re watching them is definitely going to be the challenge for me, but I’m definitely up for this one! I can’t wait for the next class.
