Have you ever tried Frito Bars? If you haven’t, after you’ve read this post, you probably will want to!
What are Frito Bars?
Frito bars are a no-bake bar cookie that only requires four ingredients.
A mixture of equal parts peanut butter, sugar, and corn syrup are melted together to form a mixture that tops Fritos.
The combination is the perfect mixture of sweet, crunchy, and salty.
One fall when I was still teaching 7th grade, the teachers had a tailgate before our school’s football team played.
Crystal, a great teacher friend, brought this delectable treat to the tailgate.
I have a HUGE sweet tooth and after one bite, I immediately asked Crystal for the recipe.
If I remember correctly, Crystal’s grandmother found this recipe in a magazine and had made it for years.
How to Make Them
This is such an easy recipe!
Start by spraying a 9 x 13″ pan with cooking spray and then adding a 9.25 oz bag of Fritos, spreading them out evenly.
Combine one cup each of peanut butter, sugar, and corn syrup in a saucepan.
Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the mixture is combined together.
Pour over the Fritos. If necessary, use an angled spatula to spread the mixture evenly.
Refrigerate until the mixture is set and cut into bars.
For this batch, I cut the bars into 24 squares. If I’m making these to take to a party, I often cut them into smaller squares.
Is your mouth watering?
I first shared this on my blog in 2009. I’m resharing it today with updated pictures.
Eleven years later, I still love this dessert and I think that you will as well.
