I loved the Payday candy bar when I was a youngin’ { not so many years ago ha ha ha }.

This is my tweaked version of it.

These are sticky, sweet and salty with just a hint of the cayenne pepper.

Also I might add, this recipe is short 1 cup of the nuts…as I was putting the first layer of nuts on the bottom of the pan, I sneezed and dropped the measuring cup.

They say the sign of a good cook is she is messy…then I must be a grrreeeaatttt cook…..giggling!
