Disaster to Delicious

My attempt at creating chewy caramel candies flopped and I was left with a pan full of a floppy mess. I can't stand to waste ingredients, so I risked wasting more by changing it up a bit. I added a few more ingredients and arrived at a delicious surprise....a pan full of Payday Candy bar wannabes.

Homemade Payday Candy Bar Wannabes
PayDay Candy Bars
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup light Karo syrup
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
Microwave 6 minutes, stirring every two minutes. Then add: 
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 cups salted peanuts
1 cup crumbled grahams
Stir with strong spoon until it cools enough and becomes too hard to stir with the spoon. Continue to “knead” with oiled hands to ensure nuts and grahams are incorporated thoroughly. Push down into a greased 8x11 pan to flatten. Allow to cool and cut into bars. Wrap in waxed paper squares for sharing. 

Wrapped and ready to share

Have you ever turned recipe wreckage into delicious-ness by accident?
