Fritos Bars

Follow Me on Pinterest This may sound like an odd combination, but Fritos Bars are really good and satisfy that salty-sweet craving many of us have.  I ate these for the first time this Spring at a neighborhood crawfish boil, and from then on decided to track down this recipe and make them!  As you can see, I found the recipe and it’s super simple!

I changed the recipe slightly…the original recipe said to place the corn chips into the baking pan, then pour all of the melted ingredients over the top…but I didn’t like the way that turned out, so I stirred in my corn chips and peanuts so that they would be evenly coated.  I liked it much better!


Fritos Bars

Fritos Bars


  • 10 1/2 ounces Fritos corn chips, lightly crushed
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup dry roasted peanuts
  • 1 ½ cups milk chocolate chips


  1. Grease a 9x13 baking pan and set aside.
  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. Stir in corn chips and peanuts and gently stir until coated.
  3. Pour corn chip mixture into greased baking pan and spread evenly.
  4. Place chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute; stir and then microwave for 30 seconds more, if necessary to melt.
  5. Drizzle melted chocolate over Frito Bars and allow to cool completely. Once cooled, cut into squares and serve.

    Very, very interesting – not really something I’d normally make, but I think my in-laws family would go gaga over these. Can’t wait for an opportunity to make them.

    These are fantastic!!! Instead of melting and drizzling the chocolate, I just sprinkled mini chocolate chips on top (when warm so they would stick!)
