Sweet & Salty Peanut Butter Caramel Funky Fritos

  • Author:


  • 1 cup white corn syrup
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 10.5 ounce bag Fritos
  • M&M’s or Candy Corn ((optional))


  1. Pour out the Fritos on a large shallow pan lined with wax paper.
  2. 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.
  3. Pour the mixture over the chips, sprinkle with candies, and let set for 30-60 minutes. Break apart and enjoy!


While this stuff was absolutely so yummy the way I made it, the next time I make this (which will be very soon), I will do a couple of things differently.  First, I will add more fritos, maybe a bag and a half instead of just one bag.  I wanted more salty with the sweet.  Second, after pouring the peanut butter mixture over the top of the fritos, I will gently toss it, just to cover the fritos more evenly.  Also, I used the regular size fritos, and I think I’ll use the “scoops” size next time.
