Copycat Payday Bar Recipe is my homemade version of a PayDay Candy Bar. It's super easy to make and has soft caramels and salty peanuts. #copycat #recipe #peanuts #caramel #peanutroll #dessert #snack #homemade #easy #fromscratch
2cupsmarshmallowsmini-marshmallows will melt faster
1/2cuppeanut buttercreamy (I don't recommend peanut butter chips)
For the caramel
Preheat the oven to 400° F.
Pour the sweetened condensed milk into a shallow non-stick baking dish. Cover it tightly with aluminum foil. It needs to fit inside another dish. I use a 9x5-inch loaf pan for the milk and set it inside a 9x13-inch baking pan.
Pour water in the larger pan until it reaches about halfway up the inside pan with the sweetened condensed milk in it.
Bake 1 hour. Remove from oven and cool. (You can do this step hours beforehand.)
Line a 9x13-inch pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Add 2 cups of peanuts and spread them out evenly over the bottom of the pan.
