Interesting candy recipe from A Year of Slow Cooking. Just think this uses LEFTOVER Fritos for a sweet instead of a savory entree. I once had chocolate covered potato chips and thought they were super so think this would be good too. (Big thinker here.) She claims that Fritos are gluten free-surprises me. I realize that you can buy gluten free pretzels. I am not labeling this gluten free unless someone with the knowledge informs me it is appropriate. If you want to try this in the microwave instead that is fine with me. I doubt that this recipe would work in a crock pot bigger than 4 quart-am suspicious that it would burn.
