For the caramel:

50g cashews

50g plant-based milk

100g caster/ granulated sugar

For the cookies:

400g cookie mix

40g cold water

64g margarine

Instructions

  • Soak the cashews in boiling water for 30 minutes
  • Remove the cashews from the water and blend with the plant-based milk until smooth
  • Add the sugar to a dry pan on medium heat and stir continuously until a dark brown liquid forms
  • Remove from the heat and QUICKLY add the cashew cream, stirring constantly to prevent any lumps forming
  • If lumps do form, return for the heat and continue stirring until they dissolve
  • Transfer the caramel to a jar and refrigerate until ready to use
  • ‍Preheat the oven to 200'C/180'C fan
  • In a large bowl, combine the cookie ingredients to form a dough
  • If the dough remains sticky (this happens with certain margarines), refrigerate for 5-10 minutes
  • Divide the cookie dough into 8 even chunks and roll into balls
  • Place on a lined baking tray and press lightly to form a well in each cookie dough ball
  • Add 2 tsp caramel to the well and bring in the sides of the cookie dough to cover the caramel
  • Sprinkle some salt over the tray and bake for 15 minutes
  • Once cooled, top with some extra caramel and salt!
