Homemade Payday Candy Bar

If you love Payday Candy Bars, you're going to love this recipe! 

Let’s get started!

4 C. Peanuts - honey roasted or regular

1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk 1 bag mini marshmallows

1/2 cup Peanut butter chips or butterscotch.

1/2 cup Peanut Butter


You're going to need:

– Medium saucepan for melting – 13 x 9 in baking pan – Parchment Paper – Rubber spatula

Steps for making Copycat Payday Bars

01 Line a 13 x 9 inch baking dish foil. Coat foil with cooking spray. Sprinkle 2 cups of the peanuts on the bottom of the pan.

02 In a medium to large saucepan, combine sweetened condensed milk, marshmallows, peanut butter chips, butter and peanut butter. Cook over medium heat until melted and smooth. Stir often to avoid scorching the bottom of the pan.  Pour into your prepared dish over the peanuts and spread evenly.

03 Sprinkle the remaining peanuts over the smooth mixture and press down. I used parchment paper between my hands and the peanuts. Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Lift foil out of the pan.  Sometimes I flip it over onto parchment paper, then remove the foil. Cut into squares.


Instead of honey roasted peanuts, use dry roasted or lightly salted. Can't find peanut butter chips? Use butterscotch.


I wrap mine in parchment paper. Or store in an airtight container. Visit for a printable recipe card.
