Notice something different about this week’s title? Yep, it’s missing the “pinterest” part. Apparently I cooked before I pinned. I mean, obviously I did but in the onslaught of all the new recipes I find I have sort of forgotten that fact. But this week I am going to share a sweet and simple treat with you that has long been a favorite. As an added bonus it is also gluten free, so yay! (Please do not mistake the gf-ness to mean healthy though…it is definitely a suh-weet treat.)
Actually it’s a near perfect blend of salty and sweet and I have found people either love it or hate it. Make it at least once before you decide though. The ingredients sound weird together but it really is quite tasty. Oh, what’s the name of this confection you ask?
It’s basically a layer of fritos glued together with a peanut buttery almost fudgey likeness. Intrigued? Here’s what you do.
Empty a bag of Fritos into a 9×13 baking dish.
Stir together one cup of sugar with one cup of light karo syrup over medium heat until it starts to bubble and the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and stir in one cup of peanut butter until well blended. Pour over the fritos making sure to coat them evenly. You will probably make more than one pass over them.
Allow it to set for at least an hour and a half before cutting into squares and enjoy!
