A Salty Sweet Bite of Deliciousness

Mickey over at Monster Mama calls this Texas Chicken Brittle. But that name scares me =o) I’m not sure what I would want to call it but let me tell you – it’s sweet, it’s salty, and it’s a whole lot of yum. Look at the ingredients, how could it not taste delicious? But maybe the thought of chocolate covered Fritos scares you. Don’t let it. Try it. Your kids (and you) will love it!

* Fritos
* Pretzels
* Cashews (or any kind of nut)
* Milk chocolate
* White Chocolate
* mini M&Ms

  1. Line a large cookie sheet with a thin layer of Fritos.
  2. Sprinkle broken pretzels over the top.
  3. Drizzle melted chocolate over the top. (I will shake it up a little bit at this point next time I make these. And yes, there will be a next time!
  4. Sprinkle with cashews.
  5. Drizzle melted white chocolate over the top.
  6. Sprinkle with M&Ms.
  7. Let cool so the chocolate can harden.
  8. Break into pieces and enjoy!

  3. Made me laugh. We call it Texas Brittle but I added chicken to the name for my seven sisters. We affectionately call each other “chickens”. You know…”Listen to those chickens cackling” so sister food always gets a chicken name attached 🙂

  4. Oh boy, I could easily dive into a pan of those. Talk about salty sweet success.

  5. Mickey – that makes so much more sense! The chicken part scared me =o) Too funny!!!
