Are you a chocolate person or do you prefer salty treats?? For me it depends on the day. But my son – he likes his treats to be a mix of both – but he doesn’t go for the chocolate. His favorite goodie is a PayDay bar. He will grab that every time. I like them – I almost grab one – but then the urge to have chocolate overrides & I pass on the salty, sweet peanut butter. What can I say? I have to have the chocolate. So I have been promising him that I would make him a whole tray of homemade PayDay bars for a long time now. But that no chocolate thing always keeps me from doing it. That is until I found the perfect compromise. A nice chocolaty brownie topped with homemade PayDay becomes PayDay Brownies & they are AMAZING!! I love Yummy Bar Recipes!
Oh yeah – the brownie & then the sweet & chewy inner part of the payday – then topped with salty peanuts.
Heavens – I am usually pretty good about only sampling the things I share here & letting others finish it all off. These – well, I had a hard time not eating the whole pan.
It was certainly hard to share. I found myself feeling sad when I had to divvy them out.
I gotta say – my son & everyone else sure loved these.
