“It's kind of like what nachos would be like if they made them in Candy Land. My son Poe loves it with the spicy Fritos, dark choocolate, and chile flakes, but my daughter MK prefers it as written. I hope you enjoy it however you decide to make it! :D”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 10 ounces Fritos corn chips (optional -- try this with the Flamin' Hot variety)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter (optional -- use chunky peanut butter or the nut butter or nut butter substitute of your choice, e.g.)
  • 8 ounces milk chocolate chips (optional -- use dark chocolate instead)
  • 8 ounces marshmallows


  1. Lightly grease a deep glass baking dish, then dump the bag of Fritos in it.
  2. Combine corn syrup and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat.
  3. When the super sugar mixture has come to a boil, remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter until smooth.
  4. Dump the resulting mixture over the Fritos. Do not allow it to cool!
  5. Spread chocolate chips in a thin layer over the hot mess so that it will melt more or less evenly.
  6. Cover in marshmallows and place in a broiler set to "high" and allow to broil for 1-3 minutes or until the marshmallows are lightly browned. MONITOR CAREFULLY. You may set the broiler to "medium" if you're worried about accidentally burning, but do not at any point walk away. The fine line between "deliciously caramelized" and "horrifically burnt" is only a second wide.
  7. Plate and serve in a dark room with the telly set to a reality show and your stomach leaden with shame. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream for extra decadence.
