If you’re a fan of Payday candy bars then you’ll go crazy for this Fast & Easy Copycat Payday Candy Bars recipe. After all, who doesn’t love payday?!!
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!
Here I am in my Kudos Kitchen whipping up a batch of Copycat Payday Candy Bars. I hope you enjoy this fast and fun video! While I may look serious in this video still, trust me, this really is a fast and fun video… honest! 🙂
