These tasted great!!! I had trouble getting the pb mixture to spread evenly so I just mixed everthing together in the pan and flattened it back out; threw on the chocolate and popped it under the broiler for 2 minutes. Turned out great!! This recipe is a keeper.
Love these!! I cheated and used a bag of milk chocolate chips. Popped it all in the oven for a few minutes. I took these to work and they were gone gone gone!
Great googley-moogley! I made these for a potluck and boy were they good! Everyone loved that sweet/salty combo. It was so quick and easy to put together too. Thanks!
Amazingly easy to make. I will try these again with only a drizzling of chocolate. Is there anyway to keep them crisp? Thanks!
These are a HUGE favorite with my crowd. I was asked to include them in a dessert buffet that I catered for a wedding -- but how to make them more attractive?? I used two bags of Fritos scoops and picked out the nicely shaped ones -- I placed them rounded side down on two wax-paper covered jelly roll pans -- put the rest of the "not so perfect ones" on a third covered sheet. Bring the sugar/corn syrup to a full roiling boil but then immediately remove from the heat and add the peanut butter and stir til smooth -- drizzle over the scoops, filling each little 'cup'. Move fairly quickly, so the caramel doesn't set up. Pour the rest of the mixture over the "not so pretty" pan. Let them cool. Melt 6 oz chocolate chips in a baggie - snip a corner and drizzle over the perfect chips. You will need some more chocolate, if you want to put chocolate on the "not so perfect" pan. Chill (fridge or freezer) for a few minutes and they will snap apart. The perfect scoops will be quite attractive and the "not so perfect" pan becomes the cook's treat. The bride was ALMOST sorry she had a "regular" wedding cake -- "Coulda just gone with the Fruckies" ;-)
My kids didn't have any money for my birthday present, so I suggested they make dinner and dessert. I printed out this recipe (among others) for them to choose from and they chose the fruckies. They were an amazingly tasty blend of salty and sweet. We loved them (and had a lot of fun trying to say the title ten times fast)!
Wonderful combination of sweet and salty. No one could figure out what they were made of! I made the recipe just as written except I had to pop them in the oven to completely melt the chocolate.
Excellent!!! I did also use a Silpat like Mean Chef and instead of melting the chocolate over the layer I put it over my warming unit on my oven and added around a third of a bar of PARRAFIN WAX and melted it with the chocolate, I use parrafin when I make peanut butter balls and it works great. My family could not get enough of these my Dh thought they tasted like some candy bar he's had before perhaps 100 Grand, or Whatchamacallit
WOW, are these ever good!!! We loved the salty/sweet combination. I think the peanut butter mixture was too thick (making it hard to break them part.) I think the next time, I will use the same amount of chocolate, but I will experiment by using less of the peanut butter mixture and just kind of "drizzle" it over the Fritos rather than spread it all over. Wonderful treat that I can't wait to make these again. Thanks for sharing, Jaqueline30.
Bizzarely delicious! If you can get your head around combining Fritos. pb. and chocolate, you are in for a terrific surprise! I, too, had to put these in a warm oven to melt the chocolate. Really fabulous and addicitive!
