Healthy Homemade Paydays

Servings: 12 Paydays



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

Recipe Notes

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

The snack size Paydays are smaller than my Homemade Paydays and have more calories, fat, carbs and sugar!  Compared to storebought snack-sized Paydays, my version has 30 less calories, 1g less fat, and half the sugar (and is refined sugar free)!

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!
