Funky Frito Fruckies

Rated as 4.36 out of 5 Stars

"Anytime I can find a mixture of salt and chocolate, I jump on it. These cookies/candies are rich but wonderful. If you are not a big fan of chocolate, or want these a little less sweet, leave the chocolate off."

These are a HUGE favorite with my crowd. I was asked to include them in a dessert buffet that I catered for a wedding -- but how to make them more attractive?? I used two bags of Fritos scoops...

These were good, but not sure they're a do-over. Don't put them in the refrigerator, you'll lose a filling.
