This is from my Mom. It's a little different than the other recipes posted, so I'm going to go ahead and post it. Tastes just like a Payday candy bar. Yum!

Awesome recipe!! It's actually a Pillsbury cookoff winner. I've been making it for years. It's fast, easy and tastes "better" than a payday candy bar.
