2. Add dried chili and let simmer & pop for about a minute.
3. Add honey to the pan; mixture will boil and start to thicken. Stir constantly for another minute.
4. Add coconut and cashews at once. Stir constantly until both nuts and coconut are golden brown.
5. Pour to cool on waxed paper; sprinkle with flaked sea salt to taste.
6. Eat and enjoy!
