I call it Frito Bark
I've been reading food blogs for probably 2 years now. It definitely inspired me to start my own blog as well. I have SO MANY recipes saved on this computer from food blogs, I wonder if I'll ever get to them. Sometimes my eyes are bigger then my stomach, if you know what I mean! Many blogs come up with super, creative recipes that you wish you made up yourself. I like this recipe I'm going to share with you today. I found it on Anna's blog Cookie Madness and have been addicted to this sweet, salty, nutty, chocolaty mixture since. I shared this recipe with my best friend and we started calling it Frito Bark. When we get together for a UFC PPV she will make this dessert. She makes hers a bit different by doubling the toffee mixture and making it more like a huge bar, rather then bark. I usually won't make it because it is very, very addicting. I mean very addicting. Once you start you can't stop. So I'm warning you now! I usually have to keep it out of my house because not only am I addicted but my mom as well! It is like cat nip but for adults.
Sweet, Salty, Frito Candy. Alas I call it Frito Bark! Don't say I didn't warn you.
I only made these because I thought it be a fun treat for St. Patrick's Day and I added them to my boyfriend's care package.
Okay and if that wasn't enough. I bought myself some frozen yogurt with the flavors Madagascar vanilla and red velvet cake batter (this flavor was awesome!). For my topping, I felt Frito Bark would do its justice!
Oh, it was heaven alright!
