Funky Frito Fruckies (Sweet-Salty Snack)

Funky Frito Fruckies (Sweet-Salty Snack)

Dessert probably is not the first thing that comes to mind with a bag of Fritos, but “fruckies” are popular sweet treats made with corn chips. Simply smooth chocolate over a mixture of sugar, melted peanut butter and Fritos. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how well the sweet-and-salty combo works as an after-dinner treat.

Makes 3 dozen


10 1/2 ounces Fritos corn chips
1 cup white sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup creamy peanut butter
11 bars (1.55 ounce size) milk chocolate


In a greased 10 x 15 inch pan, place the corn chips.
(Several reviewers suggested breaking or crushing the chips first).
In a saucepan, bring the sugar and corn syrup to a boil over medium heat.
Remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter until smooth.
Pour this over the chips and smooth level.
Place the chocolate bars in a single layer over the hot mixture and wait a few minutes until the heat melts them.
Smooth the chocolate out to form a thin layer.
Allow to cool and then break into pieces.

Many VERY positive reviews! (see
