{Super Bowl Snack} Chocolate Peanut Butter Frito Bars

Oh yes, you read that title correctly! When I stumbled across this recipe in our newspaper a few weeks ago, I knew these bars would be mine. I mean, they are one big mosh pit of the best foods ever invented….Fritos, peanut butter cups, pretzels, chocolate and butter!

I got greedy with the Fritos and added too many, so my crust didn’t set
completely. Darn, I was just forced to eat all those loose pieces.

I trimmed around the outside with a sharp knife so my bars would have clean edges. Darn, more loose pieces to eat.

The plan was to have these as a Super Bowl snack, but they’re gone. Like, the whole batch gone in one day. Darn, guess I’ll just have to make another. Git in mah belly!

Mr. Sugarplum grew up in the Bay Area, so there’s Niners Mania going on in our house right now. Who are you rooting for…Ravens, Niners or the commercials? What ridiculously gluttonous snacks do you whip up for game days?

  1. Those look absolutely wonderful. I love sweet and salty together, and this looks amazing. My husband will love these. While his Packers lost in the playoffs, and my Bears didn't do so hot either, we will still be enjoying the last football game of the season with some yummy snacks. I shared a recipe for Cranberry Turkey Roll-Ups last week that I definitely will be making again, but will definitely be adding these scrumptious treats too! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Man I just got the munchies!

    These sinful bars on Super Bowl Sunday would more than make up for the fact that we got bounced from the playoffs by the Ravens. SO yeah, we're rooting for the Niners. =]

  7. So delish!!! We cook up some mini sausage pizzas every year that take weeks to work off. Well worth it!

  9. Normally I am totally on board but I am on the fence with this. You are gonna need to convince me a bit more but I do love chocolate covered pretzels…..so there could be a ray of hope. Okay who am I kidding – I freakin' love salt and chocolate…bring it on!

    GO 49ers!

    Those things look so good I think I just gained 5 lbs looking at the pictures.

    My hubs is also a 49ers fan. I don't follow NFL, I prefer college (and my team had an amazing year – national champions). My brother will be watching the game with us and he is a lifelong Ravens fan so it should be intersting. Yay for football and football food 🙂

    In Step 2, it says to place unwrapped peanut butter cups on top. ?? I'm sure that isn't right, but would you clarify that please? Thanks! These look fantastic!

    • Yes, unwrap the peanut butter cups before baking them in the bars! 🙂
