White Chocolate Frito Popcorn

I like love Frito’s. In fact, I’m pretty sure they have crack in them. Especially the Frito’s Scoops. They simply have a perfect amount salt and corn and crunch. They’re perfect. If you’ve been reading for a while, you may have picked up on my love of Frito’s.

White Chocolate Frito Popcorn

I made Frito Candy over four years ago! I think that was the first time I had Frito’s and chocolate. Then I was inspired about a year and a half later to take a stab at putting Frito’s into a cupcake. They were delicious but not very pretty. Then last year, I perfected the Frito Cupcake. Seriously, those guys are dangerously delicious.

So yea, I love Frito’s. So when I saw this recipe I knew I’d be making it soon. It makes the perfect snack because it’s sweet and salty in a perfect ratio. The white chocolate binds all the delicious pieces together and the M&Ms give a great pop of color and chocolate! I (obviously) used Scoops for this recipe. This recipe can be cut in half or doubled easily. I used homemade microwave popcorn.

    Those cupcakes look delish! Can you tell me more about the “dipping in ganache” technique? Does the ganache need to be a certain consistency first?

    I have seen some maple cheesecake around the blogs, maybe that would be awesome use for the sugar? Or to top maple sugar cookies 🙂

    I made a seriously awesome maple mousse cake to go with Christmas dinner this year and it used maple sugar. It was one of the best desserts I’ve ever eaten. The link to the post is: http://joanne-eatswellwithothers.blogspot.com/2010/01/frozen-maple-mousse-pie-with-chocolate.html.

    Carly – I dipped the cupcakes in the ganache while it was still very liquidy. I did it a few minutes after making the ganache and then let it set up on the cupcakes. Hope that helps.

    Jen, the maple syrup experience sounds like so much fun and I’ve always wanted to do it! I wonder if it’s too late this year.
