Homemade Payday Candy Bars
The prep is the longest part because you have to remove all of the wrappers from a 14 oz. bag of caramels, but if you have an 8 year old "sous chef," he can be unwrapping while you're chopping peanuts & measuring marshmallows, and your prep & cooking times will be cut down to about 12 minutes.
Then you just have to wait 2 hours for the candy to cool before you can cut it into pieces. Sounds about right for a game of Monopoly with your sous chef. I call the race car! =^..^=

3In a medium pan, melt the unwrapped caramels, water, and mini marshmallows together over LOW-MEDIUM heat, stirring constantly off the bottom to keep the caramels from scorching.
