Homemade Payday Candy Bars

Pin It

My husband and son love Payday Candy bars and so I thought I would give it a try and make some at home.

Pinterest has a ton of recipes and they are all just a little different so I took several and came up with my own

They turned out pretty tasty if I do say so myself.

I always thought making candy would take a long time or be hard to do but it is surprisingly easy and doesn't take any time at all.

Here's what you need:

1 - 16 oz can of peanuts, I use Planters and rub off all skins that are on the peanuts
3 Tbs. butter
2 cups peanut butter chips
2 cups mini marshmallows
1 can sweetened condensed milk, full fat kind

Line a 9 x 13 or 11 x 7 with parchment paper, pour half the peanuts into the pan and set aside.
In a large stock pot melt the butter with the peanut butter chips, stirring often until melted.
Add the sweetened condensed milk and stir to combine.
Add the mini marshmallows and stir until melted.  This takes a few minutes.
Pour the mixture over the peanuts making sure to get into all the corners.
Pour the rest of the peanuts over the warm mixture pressing them into the filling.
Refrigerate for 1 hour or until set.  
Then slice and serve.
I kept the leftovers in individual pieces of parchment (taped closed) in the fridge.  They didn't last very long in my house as they are a favorite, lol

Serves as many as you cut
