1 1/2 cups
packed brown sugar
peanut butter chips
crisp rice cereal
Very tasty! My crust wasn't at all crumbly as one reviewer said her's was. But I pressed the crumbs VERY firmly into the pan...maybe that's the key. I did add peanuts & I did let them sit in the fridge overnight. They were rock hard & worried me that I had overcooked them but after they had set out of the fridge for a while, they softened back up some. I'll mail some to my Dad...he LOVES PayDays & these really do taste like the candy bar. Thansk Diane!
These are good bars. I used unsalted peanuts as that was all I had, I think it would best with salted peanuts. I just used one whole egg for the crust, I didn't see the point in just using the egg whites and my crust held together fine. I would probably make these again.
These were great! They taste just like a PayDay candy bar. I was just a little disappointed with the crust - it crumbles when you bite into it. (It's not because I overcooked it either.) Thanks for the recipe!
I've made these twice now; they're simple and tasty. I made them as written the first time and the second time used half cappuccino chips and half milk chocolate chips for a change of taste. These need to set for 12 hours before cutting. I recommend these highly.
A total home run with the people I made them for (not to mention myself and Hubs too!). Gooey, creamy, crunchy and peanutty all at once. As I made these I expected to find them too sweet and was pleasantly surprised when they were not. Attractive, easy to cut, hold their shape, and just plain satisfying to the sweet tooth. And did I mention they are a fun, quick, no-brainer to make? Just my opinion, but the "optional" peanuts should NOT be omitted!
These were great, everyone loved them. I don't make them often because you just can't stop eating them. Very addicting.
Excellent, almost like a candy rather than just a cookie. Very good.
Great cookie if the kids like peanuts.
Tastes similar to the "Payday" candy bar.
