I love the salty-sweet combination in a Payday candy bar. These bar treats are a quick and simple way to recreate the flavor combination at home. I’ll warn you though … it’s hard to eat just one :-)
1 c. white sugar
1 c. light Karo syrup
1 c. peanut butter
6 c. Rice Chex
1 c. blanched peanuts
Bring the Karo syrup and sugar to a boil. Remove from heat and add the peanut butter until dissolved, then stir in Chex and peanuts. Mix until coated and spread into a buttered 9×13 pan. Cool, then cut into squares.
Instead of blanched peanuts, I often use salted peanuts. I love the salty-sweet flavor combination.
