I am loving the cooler temperatures.
But sometimes when my feet get cold I lose my motivation.
Yesterday was NOT one of those days.
I get up early in the morning to start my days,
but yesterday I was sucked into my "pages feed" on Facebook.
As I was scrolling, scrolling, scrolling
I came to a complete stop when a beautiful picture of
came into view.
I had to go and check it out......
Lil' Luna inspired me to make Pay Day Fudge.
You've all heard of the Pay Day creation with
dry roasted peanuts and candy corn, right?
Well, with Lil' Luna's inspiration I threw the pay day
creation into white chocolate fudge.
Every Fall at this time my brother has a bowl of
the pay day mixture at arms reach.
When I go and visit he will grab that bowl,
stick it in my face and say,
"Want some Pay Day?" (with a little chuckle)
I guess you gotta be there to get the gist of this story.....
So, this Pay Day Fudge is kind of dedicated to my
"Hey Brent, want some Pay Day Fudge?" (chuckle)
1 c. candy corn
1 overflowing c. dry roasted peanuts
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. heavy cream
1/2 tsp. salt (I just used a couple shakes)
1/2 c. butter
2 1/2 c. white chocolate chips
1 tub (7 oz.) marshmallow fluff
Mix the candy corn and peanuts in a bowl, set aside.
Line a 9X9 baking pan with waxed paper. Let the waxed paper hang over the sides. That way you can lift it out of the pan to cut the fudge.
In your stand mixer place the white chocolate chips and marshmallow fluff.
Mix sugar, heavy cream, salt, and butter in a medium sized saucepan. Over medium heat melt ingredients and bring to a low boil. Boil for 5 minutes.
Add the hot mixture to the the chocolate and fluff. Using the paddle attachment mix on low/medium until everything is melted and smooth.
Pour into lined baking pan. Smooth out top and press a few extra candy corn and peanuts on the top, pressing lightly. Place in fridge for 4-5 hours. I left mine in overnight.
