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.

    These are the same bars I made, but I added cinnamon chips per recommendation from Maria at Two Peas in their Pod. They were great! Glad to see they turned out well for you too!

    I totally agree I’m not crazy about chocolate and pumpking together. Another great flavor with pumpkin (in my opinion) is gingerbread.

    I’m definitely adding this to my list of pumpkin recipes that will be baked from here until the kiddos say no more! 🙂

    I made these last night to take tailgating at a college football game tonight and they are SO yummy! I used semisweet chips instead of white chocolate, but I bet they’d be good either way! I’m Really glad you warned that the mixture might look like it curdled after adding in the pumpkin, because I think it would have freaked me out and I would have thought I did something wrong!
