Who doesn’t like a Payday Bar?
Creamy caramel butter…and tons of salty peanuts….my mouth is watering right now.
Payday Candy Bars were created in 1932 by Frank Martoccio, founder of the F.A. Martoccio Macaroni Company and later, head of Hollywood Brands, Inc., who invented many of the great candy bars of days gone by.
Today we are going to create our own version of those famous candy peanut bars with a super simple recipe.
What you will need:
1 (16 ounce) jar of dry roasted peanuts
3 T butter
1 bag of peanut butter chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups miniature marshmallows
Begin by greasing a 9×13 pan and pouring ½ of the peanuts on the bottom of the pan.
Melt the butter and peanut butter chips in a sauce pan, stirring continually.
Add the sweetened condensed milk and then the marshmallows. (Don’t let the marshmallows melt.)
Pour the mixture over the peanuts and pat down evenly. I used a spatula to help spread the mixture.
Pour the remaining peanuts over the mixture and pat some more.
Chill in a refrigerator, cut and serve.
