In complete contrast to last weeks Raspberry gelato post. This one is for those of us who are coming into the cooler months and just want a nice warm pudding to snuggle up to. I apologize for the photo. I made this dessert for our mother‘s day lunch and had a mere few minutes before the hoards descended upon it. This caramel, cashew nut heaven was one based on a recipe I found on
