Healthy Homemade Paydays.  Basically, a strip of ooey, gooey, chewy, sweet and buttery caramel coated in crunchy, rich peanuts.

Yield: 12 Paydays

  1. Fill the candy bar molds with a single layer of peanuts (try to avoid overlapping)
  2. Press the caramels into the mold over the peanuts.
  3. Press remaining peanuts into the caramel. Refrigerate 2+ hours.
  4. Remove the Paydays from the mold and press on extra peanuts if needed to cover any caramel. They are ready to gobble up!


I stored my Paydays in a sealed container in the fridge.

This recipe is: no bake, low sugar, gluten free, vegan!

I decided to compare my Healthy Homemade Payday nutrition label with the storebought stuff.  I made my Paydays in a candy bar mold so they aren’t as large as the ones you would buy at the store, so I am comparing my Homemade Paydays with the snack-size Paydays.  The original Paydays are on the left, my homemade Paydays are on the right:

The snack size Paydays are smaller than the homemade Paydays and have more calories, fat, carbs and sugar!  So make these amazing candy bars at home for only 60 calories a piece… you can have two (or three?) now!

  1. So weird that you made this because I have an idea for something SO similar! I promise when I make mine, I am not copying you! 🙂

  2. Mad this recipe with some of the soft caramels recipe I made last night, but I used roasted salted peanuts as I crave sweet salty treats! Wonderful lower calorie treat to have on hand to quench those cravings!

  3. Carolyn- Yay! Can’t wait to see your recipe 🙂

    Laura- I’m glad you liked the recipe! Salted peanuts sounds delicious 🙂
