Fritos Friday: Fritos Chocolate Crunchies

It’s my favorite day again: Fritos Friday! I swear, I will eventually move away from pushing Fritos into candy and dessert applications, but right now, I’m really having fun with it.

Fritos Chocolate Crunchies are no exception. The idea comes directly from Kaleta Doolin’s book, Fritos Pie, but I have no idea if this recipe is even remotely similar to hers, as somehow my copy of the book has disappeared in our unpacking-from-Texas process.

I’m sure it will turn up again, but in the meantime, I decided to wing it. Hello delicious! The only thing I might do differently is to use all milk chocolate in future, as I think the dark chocolate can overpower the Fritos slightly, and you really want them to shine here.

Make Fritos Chocolate Crunchies using the small Oxo cookie scoop and you’ll have perfectly poppable nibbles. They’ll be great on a game day table, your Easter table, or as a Birthday Party treat. They’d also be fabulous as the garnish on top of a chocolate cupcake with vanilla frosting.

The other bonus is that these munchable little bites come together with just the microwave, a couple of bowls, and a spoon. You don’t need much else.

Just make some space in the refrigerator for a parchment lined baking tray so they can set, and you can call yourself a candy making fool.

Happy Fritos Friday, y’all!

Possibly, Miss Shelly, because I made it up :) I am TOTALLY trying to make it a thing like Wordless Wednesday, though, so come on! Make some cookies with Fritos in them or something. That would be awesome!

Another awesome one? I can't handle it! These look delish, too, and my husband just raised his eyebrows and gave that little smile that says "I'll take some of those right now!"

This is such a fun series, I'm so intrigued to see how many frito desserts (and other dishes!) you can come up with!
