Fourth of July Mid-Block Party - Salted Nut Rolls



Fourth of July Mid Block Party

I love my neighborhood!!  We are one of the original home-owners in our block.  We moved to Tulsa in August 1994, built the house and have been here since then.  Last night a neighbor had a "Mid-Block" party to celebrate new neighbors, old neighbors, and the 4th of July.  It was great!!!  And I tell you we were so blessed with the cool weather that we are having.  The HIGH yesterday was 84 degrees.  Now that is unheard of in Tulsa OK on July 1st.  I have lived here for 19 years and can't ever remember weather like this in July.  We actually got chilly on the patio when the sun went down!!  Glorious!!!

Father God, we thank you for the cool weather, neighbors and friends.  We thank you for our country and the freedoms that we often take for granted!!  We are a blessed nation.  May we honor you in all that we say and do.  In the name of Jesus we pray.....Amen!

As you can see I made a festive desert tray for the party.  I had my No-Bake Chocolate Mint Bars, Peanut Butter Crunch Balls, Salted Nut Bars, and Peanut Butter Cookies.   Everyone loved the festive tray.  There was a lot of great food at the party!!  I love potlucks...you can get so many great ideas and recipes.

Today I will share the recipe for Salted Nut Bars.  I found this on another web site early in June.  If you want to find the original version it is here.  Thanks to Memories by the Mile for this incredible no bake, summer, fun recipe.  It certainly brought back memories of my childhood and eating "PayDay" candy bars.  Hope it brings back memories for you too!!



Salted Nut Roll

Ingredients:
16 oz Jar of Roasted Peanuts
3 TBSP Butter
10 Pkg of Penut Butter Chips
1 can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
10 ounce Pkg of Mini Marshmallows

Directions:



1. Line a 9 x 13 pan with aluminum foil.  Spray the foil with cooking spray.



2.  Pour 1/2 of the jar of peanuts evenly onto the bottom of the pan.



3.  Melt butter and Peanut Butter Chips in the microwave for 1 minutes on high.  Stir and repeat in 15 second intervals until smooth.





4.  Add the entire can of sweetened condensed milk to the mixture 




5.  Stir until the mixture is smooth and creamy.



6.  Add the bag of mini marshmallows immediately.  Fold into the nougat mixture being quick but careful so that the entire bowl of marshmallows is covered in the nougat.  Pour into pan and press down to cover the entire surface.  I used a baggie over my hand that was greased with cooking spray.  It made it easier.




7.  Pour the remaining half of the peanuts on top and press again over the entire surface to incorporate the peanuts into the candy layer.




 8.  Wait until the candy has cooled and the mixture is firm to the touch before cutting into squares or rolls.  Because of the aluminum foil, you can lift the entire pan of candy out onto a board and cut them easier.




I made this platter for the new pediatric residents that I was teaching that day.  They loved them.





I also cut "log rolls" to give to friends.  Now these really remind me of a "PayDay" bar.  AHHHH.....Sweet Memories!!!  Thanks again to Memories by the Mile for this great...nostalgic recipe.
