This recipe for Copycat Payday Candy Bars is a redo from the original post I shared back in 2011. It’s hard to believe it’s been 7 years since I first shared this recipe. Where does the time go? While a lot has changed in the past 7 years, this recipe hasn’t. After all, why mess with perfection?

This what I originally wrote about these Copycat Payday Candy Bars back in 2011:

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.

And here is one of the original photos:

Back in 2011 if you would have told me I’d be producing my own food videos, and that I’d have my own Kudos Kitchen food video channel on YouTube I would have literally laughed out loud. Fast forward 7 years to today, and I’m doing just that, and having a whole lot of fun in the process!
