Sweet and Salty Frito Candy
With the start of school looming up ahead, and an unfinished incomplete left from several years ago that I never seem to get around to, I knew drastic measures were needed to motivate me to finish in order to start my final school year with a clean slate. So I set a moratorium on candy making. I told myself that not until I finished could make the Sweet, Salty Frito Candy I had seen on Cookie Madness and experiment some more with my marshmallow recipe (they are more rubbery than I would like, especially after the first day or two, any suggestions?)
Sweet and Salty Frito Candy Recipe
Ingredients & Quantities
- 2 cups pretzels
- 1 cup fritos
- 1/2 cup chopped peanut butter bar bits
- 1 stick margarine
- 1/2 cup brown sugar

Place pretzels in the food processor and pulse to break. Add Fritos and pulse to break–don’t pulverize. Dump them into the pan and discover peanut butter bars over the mix.
Melt margarine in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add brown sugar and bring to a full boil. Boil for 1 minute. Pour sugar mixture over pretzel mixture and bake for 8 minutes.
Sprinkle the top with chocolate chips, return the pan to the oven for 1 minute and spread the chocolate into an even layer.
Cool at room temperature and then place the pan in the freezer to set the chocolate. Break the candy into pieces. Store in the freezer until ready to serve.
Note: I prefer this served cold, right out of the freezer, but it can also be served at room temperature.layer.
