Homemade Payday Bars

Today I made homemade Payday bars out of homemade caramel and party peanuts. I got the idea when we made caramel apples with peanuts on them on Halloween. They are delicious with no corn syrup at all.

Here's how to make them.

Homemade Payday Bars

2 cups of brown sugar.
2 cups of heavy cream.
1 cup of honey.
1 stick of butter.
1/2 a cup of peanut butter.
2 pounds of party peanuts.

Mix the sugar cream and honey in a medium saucepan.

Put the saucepan over medium heat and add the butter (I cut the butter into pieces for quicker melting)

Cook the mixture and stir it constantly until it's thick or it has reached firm ball stage.

Remove the caramel from the heat and stir in the peanut butter.

Line a 9 x 13 pan with aluminum foil then pour three cups of the peanuts onto the bottom of the pan.

Pour the caramel into the pan and sprinkle the rest of the peanuts on top.

Leave at room temperature until it has cooled completely.

Slice to the size of your choice and enjoy.
