Pay Day

The upper echelon of candy includes Reese's, Snickers, Baby Ruth, and the lesser known


Pay Day.



I gotta figure out how to make this at home.

Even though I never had it, I think you could try to mix almond meal or finely ground nuts (peanuts if you wish) with almond toffee and while still a little soft, dredge it in peanuts.
I would also try to make some caramel and top it with nuts.
Please let me know what you get.

Now Paydays are just a slightly whipped caramel rolled in roasted, salted peanuts-- not the dry roasted kind. They used to have a white nougat center like the pecan or peanut logs that are sold in grocery stores. Whatever you come up with, I'm sure it will be better!

I hate Pay Day's. I'd much rather have a Twix, Kit Kat, or Heath Bar.
Baby Ruth sucks too.

Anne said...

Yeah, please do figure it out. I love it, too.

Peanuts + candy corn! Trust me on this one!

There is a cookbook file floating around out there in the internet world somewhere (I've had a couple of people e-mail it to me as an attachment over the last 2 years) that has all sorts of knock-off / cover recipes... everything from twinkies to restaurant's "secret recipes".

That cookbook has a recipe for Payday Bars and, while I've never made them, I remember looking at the recipe and thinking it would work and probably be about right.

When I get home tonight I'll try to remember to look for it and see if I can't get it to you.

However, after reading your blog for a while, I'm pretty sure you'd enjoy trying to figure it out just as much as you enjoy the candy.

Next time you're in the Reading Terminal Market or South Philly, get some Termini Torrone. You'll forget all about that hydrogenated oil and high fructose corn syrup they make that "PayDay" with.

They do mail order, too.

I used to eat Pay Days.

I am due for making some butterscotch soon.

Hey, Nick, a friend and I have an ongoing think-tank going about how to cook with malted barley syrup. Care to finagle that concept with your mind? We have ideas of ham glaze, and I'm going to make chocolate malt ice cream soon. Obviously we mean the kind without hops pre-added! The kind that would be good (but kind of weird)on pancakes...
