While surfing the net one day, I came across this recipe for Fritos Dessert Bars. I thought this recipe sounded strange enough to give it a try. First off, lightly spray a 9” x 13” cake pan. Dump a 10-1/4 oz. bag of Fritos in a bowl and crush them a little.
In a medium sized sauce pan over medium heat, add 1 cup sugar and 1 cup corn syrup.
Cook, stirring occasionally till this mixture comes to a boil.
Remove from heat and add 1 cup creamy peanut butter and stir until smooth.
Pour over Fritos and stir until Fritos are nicely coated.
Put the Fritos mixture into your prepared pan and press down with a spatula to spread your mixture out evenly.
Put 1/2 – 1 cup (I used 1 cup, of course) milk chocolate chips in a small zip lock bag. Microwave at 30 second intervals, squishing after each time, making sure the chips are melted.
Snip off a small piece of the corner of your bag and drizzle your melted chips over the Fritos Bars.
This is where the recipe ended but I opted to spread the chocolate over my Fritos Bars while it was still warm.
The next step to the recipe says to let set before cutting into squares. I of course, am not that patient…………..I cut into my Fritos Bars right after smoothing out the chocolate and ate a nice, ooey-gooey piece. Yummy!
After letting them cool enough to cut………….and tasting them, they’re not too bad, especially if you like Fritos. It’s another one of those salty-sweet treats.
