Payday Bars!

Today is Secret Recipe Club day, and I was so lucky to have been assigned Melissa's Cuisine! Melissa has a fantastic blog full of great recipes, and I had a tough time deciding on what to make. I love the gumdrop recipe, and the apple cider caramels look soooo good! I definitely will be making those yummy looking Cinnabons, oh, and the German Style Pretzels!  Today I made the Payday Bars. It's a great, very simple recipe, that tastes incredible. I made a few changes. Instead of peanut butter chips, I used the peanut butter chips mixed with the milk chocolate chips. I also made everything in the microwave. We are still in the process of moving, and so much is still packed. Try these payday bars, and stop by Melissa's Cuisine for the original recipe!

Payday Bars
3 cups salted Peanuts(divided)
2 1/2 tablespoons Butter
2 cups Peanut Butter and Milk Chocolate Chips
14 Ounces Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 cups mini Marshmallows
Spread 1 1/2 cups of peanuts into the bottom
of a 9X13" pan.
Melt the butter and chips together in the microwave.
It took 3 times 1 minute to melt chips and butter together.
Stop each cycle in the middle and stir .
Add the can of sweetened condensed milk and the marshmallows.
Melt by stirring with the melted chips.
If needed microwave for 2 more 1 minute cycles, 
stirring after each one.
Stir together until smooth.
Spread the melted chips over the peanuts.
Sprinkle the remainder of the peanuts over the 
melted chips.
Refrigerate until solid, then cut into bars.


Enjoy!
Thanks Melissa~for a great recipe!
