I’ve been making these for years minus the chocolate chips. I got the original recipe from Taste of Home and they were called Kooky Kookies. They are a big hit wherever I take them. Super easy to make. I will have to try the recipe with the chocolate chips.

Doubled the sauce, and put everything into a huge bowl to mix together before pouring it into a 9x13 pan. DELICIOUS!!! Easy to cut because the fritos broke down a bit and the chocolate melted to look just like fudge. Peanut texture/taste without peanuts. Love it!!!

These are a cute idea and they are tasty (but VERY SWEET) but I found them a mess to make, a mess to try to cut and serve ,and a mess to eat, You can get the same great flavors and taste in something else and avoid the mess. The chocolate is always molten unless you put it in the fridge - and then it turns the whole thing into cement and you can't cut it OR CHEW IT.

Definitely double the sauce, or halve the Fritos.

YUM! I made these according to the recipe the first time around, and they are good. The second time I made them, I doubled the "sauce ingredients"

Very tasty and similar to a recipe I used to make with my grandmother. I had lots of dry chips in the bottom of the pan though so next time I'll add the peanut butter mixture to the corn chips in a big bowl, stir everything together and press into the pan.

This sounds awesome. I'm going to make them with chili cheese corn chips. And possibly chunky peanut butter.

So this is the strangest recipe I've ever tried. They are good as well as easy to make, but too sweet for me (hence the 3 stars). Other people seem to like them though. I did follow the reviewer's suggestion to crush the chips a bit first & I did that. This would go well at a potluck or a Superbowl party. The sweetness factor makes them a no for me, though.

I like dark chocolate so will try these bars that way. They look good.

These are sweet and salty. Loved them and friends loved them too. Only suggestion would be to gently crush the frito chips slightly. They will cut better and bite better! Yum! Easy - Easy and makes a lot.
