Just out of the blue I had a craving for ginger crunch! So decided to change it slightly and add some salted cashew nuts to the base and a sprinkle in the topping. Its a good addition to your classic and think I will be making this one again soon.

I really enjoy using brands that are an affordable price but also a good quality, this recipe is made 100% from Pams. I didn’t realize until I had all of the ingredients out, they are clearly my go to!
