Hershey's PayDay Candy Bar

In December of 1996, Hershey Foods snagged the U.S. operations of Leaf Brands for a pretty penny. This added several well known candies to Hershey's already impressive roster, including Good & Plenty, Jolly Rancher, Milk Duds, Whoppers, Heath, and this delicious peanut roll, which we can finally clone at home. The center is sort of a white fudge that we can make by combining a few ingredients on the stove, then getting the mixture up to just the right temperature using a candy thermometer (you've got one, right?). Once cool, this candy center is coated with a thin layer of caramel, then quickly rolled over roasted peanuts. Looks just like the real thing! This recipe will make eight candy bars. But it's up to you to make the dental appointment.

1/4 cup whole milk

It's really yummy, but they are very complicated to make.

I put in a recipe for an even easier Payday clone, but you never posted it to your website. Here it is again: Take a bag of candy corn and mix it with shelled salted peanuts. It tastes just like a Payday when eaten together.
