Poor Mans Payday Candy Bar Mix

I learned how to make poor mans payday candy bar mix yesterday at my church’s 10th Annual Fall Festival. This was my 8th year of being involved and my 7th year of Co-chairing with my alter ego Angelle. It was a beautiful day and such a fun time. One of our favorite Contributors every year is Tom from our local Chick-fil-a. He is so gracious and brings free chicken biscuits to our volunteers every Fall Fest morning. He also donates free Chick-fil-a for a year to our Silent Auction.On Friday while we were setting up we had some candy corn laying around. My friend Mary and I were having a disagreement over the taste of generic candy corn vs. Brach’s when Tom came by. He told us about Poor Man’s PayDay©. We could not believe it when he told us the recipe. I guess he got a craving because he brought us a bag the next day.

Poor Mans Payday, this easy mix tastes just like a pay day candy bar/ Miss Information Blog/ #candybar #partymix #halloween #fallrecipes

I could not believe how good this was, it was seriously just like a PayDay candy bar and is my new favorite fall treat!


1 Bag of Candy Corn (ok I admit Brachs is better)
1 Jar of Honey Roasted peanuts

Mix together, that’s it, you won’t believe how good poor mans payday candy bar mix is!

    I was introduced to this tasty combo last fall. Gotta LOVE the sweet & salty combo. Thanks for the reminder…I have both on hand, but haven't mixed them yet…that's about to change. And I LOVE payday candy bars too.
