  1. Can you taste the peanut butteryness(?) of the chips or is it rather masked by the other ingredients? I know that sounds strange but as much as I love peanuts, I ‘m not a fan of peanut butter. I want to make opinion nut rolls also so what flavor chips could I sub. I wonder.

  2. My favorite candy bar is Payday b/c it’s so good with coffee!! Thx for this great way to get an afternoon fix. Love this recipe.

  3. Pay Days were always one of my favorites! I am nuts for nuts. This will be fun to make for my work friends. Thanks.

  4. WOW! I stumbled upon your website today and have fallen in love with so many of your recipes, and this one has officially made me a fan! My mother loves Pay Day bars so much, I can’t wait to make this for her. I’m making your Creamy Tomato Pasta Casserole tonight for a quick dinner.

    Thank you.
