CANDY CORN MARSHMALLOW BARS are a delicious combination of sweet and salty. This recipe is like a PayDay candy bar with the addition of candy corn!

Peanuts, candy corn, marshmallows, and caramel combined for a festive fall or Halloween treat.

These candy corn bars are really quick to make. It does take a little time for them to cool and set. You can hurry that step along by putting them in the fridge to set. (Or, you can eat them before they set with is totally okay. 😉)
