Pay Day Bars

Posted by Lori:

Although I don't usually eat Pay Day candy bars (nothing against them, I just usually want chocolate!), I really like these bars. This recipe came from a lady at church over 20 years ago. She made them back then, and I remember asking for the recipe because I liked them so much. And now, she's still making them for church dinners and VBS. I've made the bars before, but it's even more fun to eat them when Erma has made them! Isn't that the way it is sometimes???

1 yellow cake mix
1/2 cup margarine
1 egg
3 cups mini marshmallows

Mix cake mix, margarine, and egg. Pat into 9 x 13 inch pan and bake at 350 degrees for 12 - 18 minutes. After baked, but while still hot, sprinkle marshmallows over crust. Top with the following mixture:

2/3 cup corn syrup
1 12 oz. package peanut butter chips
1/4 cup margarine
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups Rice Krispies
2 cups salted peanuts

In medium saucepan over medium heat, heat corn syrup, peanut butter chips, and margarine until smooth, while stirring constantly. Add vanilla and stir. Add cereal and peanuts and stir until well blended. Pour over cake mix mixuture.

Allow to cool and cut into bars.

Oh, I love a Payday, occasionally. It's the sweet and salty combination....I'll have to try it!
