Hi, it’s me, Lily again!!

Today at lunch time I’m going to leave Arizona and go back to Texas. I’m going to miss all my cousins but I miss my dad, so I’m excited to see him tonight!

Next week is the Fourth of July. Another word for it is Independence Day. We have fun and eat food and watch fireworks. I do not like the sound of the fireworks popping but I love watching the colors of the fireworks because it’s AMAZING!!!

Today, I’m sharing a recipe for Homemade Pay Day Candy Bars. We made this last year and I don’t remember much other than it was really yummy!

    Wow, is that what is in a Pay Day? No wonder they are so tasty. Thanks for the recipe. It looks simple and delicious.

    Do you think peanut butter would work in place of the chips? Or maybe it wouldnt set up? I got everything today, but thought it had said PB, so no chips.

    I made these but they never seemed to set…. so it is a gooey mess to eat them. :/ did I do something wrong?!

    Lily, Thank you for the recipe. I’m going to make them as soon as I get all the ingredients. Thank you for the pictures; you did a great job. I don’t think I’ve made candy bars before, so they were a big help!

    These look soooo yummy, Lily!!! Will definitely try them soon!!! THANKS for sharing your recipe!!!

    Mine never set up and stayed gooey. Thoughts? I also was wondering if you sprayed the dish with any cooking spray or buttered it.

    I love pay days Lily I should try this and I am sorry you have to go home

    Is it really 3 teaspoons? That is 1 Tablespoon. Butter is normally measured by Tablespoons so is it supposed to be 3 Tablespoons or 1 Tablespoon?

    These turned out great and are very tasty! The only reason that I took off a start is that I feel these instructions are a little incomplete.

    These bars definitely won’t set properly if you follow these exact instructions – I had to boil my mixture over medium heat for about half an hour to make sure it was going to set into a chewy candy. It should be very thick and slow to fall back together when separated in the pot.

    I also found that the peanuts on the top (despite having pushed them into the mixture) almost all fell out when I cut it into squares. Next time I would probably only put the peanuts on the bottom (or mix them in)…it doesn’t look as nice with all of these peanut holes!

    Delicious recipe though, going to be a hit at Christmas for sure!

      Anita, I sure wish I had read your comments before I made these again. I knew there was something missing in the instructions. I’m sad That I wasted all those ingredients.

    All of these Pay Day recipes seems to be a waste of time. I have compared all of the different recipes and their ingredients and have tried this 2 years in a row for Christmas baking They do not set up. They are runny and a mess. Refrigerating does not help at all.

    How many ounces for the condensed milk?
