Payday Candy Bars

I got this recipe years ago from my dear friend Pam.  I recently found it while rummaging through my recipe file looking for something else.  I'm so glad I noticed this recipe peeking out at me because this one truly tastes like the original Payday candy bar.  If you're a nut lover (like me), you'll love this one and it will become a family favorite.

Payday Candy Bar Recipe


2 large jars of dry roasted, salted peanuts
1 stick of butter
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups mini marshmallows
1 bag of peanut butter chips
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

-Butter a 9x13 pan and sprinkle enough peanuts on the bottom to cover.
-In a saucepan, melt the butter and add the sweetened milk.
-Add the peanut butter chips and stir to melt.
-Add the mini marshmallows, remove from the heat, and stir well to combine.
-Add the vanilla extract and blend.
-Gently pour this mixture over the peanuts in the prepared 13x9 pan.
-Sprinkle the remaining nuts on top of this mixture, pressing them in slightly to the filling.
-Cover and refrigerate until firm enough to cut into bars.

So there you have it!  No more waiting for Payday. You can have yours whenever you like! Priceless.
