Frito Bars

Frito Bars by Sweet Pea

Yeah, you heard that right, Frito Bars.ย  ย A cookie made from Frito??ย  Sound strange? Maybe a little disgusting? You NEED to try these, they are some kind of good!


Here’s what you need:

A bag of Fritos
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of Karo syrup
1 cup of peanut butter

Here’s what you do:

Spray a 9×13″ baking pan with butter flavored cooking spray.

Pour in the Fritos and spread them out evenly. You can see that the bag that I purchased contains 20% more. I didn’t use the entire bag because of this.

Frito Bars Ingredients

Put the sugar, Karo syrup, and peanut butter in a saucepan and heat until it is melted together. Pour over the Fritos.

You may need to put this in the refrigerator for a bit to set. I let mine cool on the counter and then put them into the refrigerator which later on made them easier to cut.

      Gluten free is an added bonus. I haven’t made these in a while and need to do so. Thanks so much for commenting!
