Frito chips have long been a favorite of all for pre-game and game treat. But as I write this post I wonder if you have ever tried frito candy This snack has won many super bowl party prizes for best snack food. Made with frito chips and chocolate, offering a salty, chocolaty, gooey, delicious snack. 

Sweet, Salty, Frito Candy

2 cups pretzels
cup Fritos
8 mini peanut butter cups (I used 4 regular-sized cups broken into pieces)
1 stick unsalted butter (8 tablespoons)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (or however many you want)
Optional: Some peanuts for the top

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a 13×9 inch pan with parchment paper or no-stick (Release) foil.
Place pretzels in food processor and pulse to break - don’t pulverize. Add Fritos to processor and break them up with pretzels. Dump into pan. Unwrap peanut butter cups and throw them in the mix.

Place butter in a non-stick saucepan and melt over medium heat. When butter is melted, stir in brown sugar. Bring mixture to a full boil and boil for 1 minute, stirring once or twice. Pour over Frito mixture and bake for 8 minutes.
Remove pan from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over hot candy. Return to oven for 1 minute to soften chips. Spread softened chocolate chips over bars.
Cool at room temperature until you feel the pan is cool enough to be transferred then transfer to refrigerator to set the chocolate. When chocolate is set, lift from pan and break the candy into pieces. The finished treat can be stored at room temperature, but I liked it best nice and cold from the fridge!
