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.
