A store clerk asked me if I liked PayDay candy bars when I was buying a bag of candy corn. He told me to get a can of salted peanuts and mix them a ratio of 4 peanuts to 1 candy corn. Hmmm, not bad! Forgot about it until I saw your recipe. Thanks for the post!
I love to make this using cashews (DH demands it!). I purchased a clear glass pumpkin at WalMart to pu the corn in. A pretty presentation! :)
dh and I really liked this. It'll be something different to put out on Thanksgiving.
Not a candy corn fan either but this mix is delish! I used Indian corn (brownish candy corn; tastes the same).
Oh yeah!! I just bought my candy corn and peanuts today and it's great! It does taste more like Salted Nut Roll to me but who cares - it's yummy! I really have never liked candy corn but buy it for dh - I'm afraid we're going to have to battle for them now! Try it!
I'm eating this as I type! I was leary at first but I wanted something to take to the football game this weekend and this sounded different. This would be good to have in dishes at a Super Bowl party or any entertaining get togethers! I used equal amounts of each I didn't do the full 8 cups worth!
Addictive!! My father-in-law always made this to have around the house for the grandkids and himself. But I always thought it tasted like a Salted Nut Roll, I love that candy bar. So if you don't want to get hooked on this stay FAR AWAY because it is just the best.
How much simpler can a recipe get??? I love Payday candy bars and this mixture is very similar to one. Depending on how fresh the candy corn is, this mixture is creamier than the candy bar. Great snack, festive, cheap :)
PayDay, PayDay, PayDay!!!!
I always have a dish of this in October. The kids know once I take my pumpkin candy bowl out, this mix is going in. So simple but good.
