Peanut Butter Frito Cookies

Peanut Butter Frito Cookies - sweet and salty goodness! These cookies are CRAZY good! Sweet and Salty in every bite. We could not stop eating these cookies. YUM! Great for parties and tailgating.

One of my favorite snacks is a Frito with peanut butter on top. I know it sounds crazy (at least Chicken Legs said so), but it tastes really good. Well, if you love Fritos and peanut butter like I do! 

I started to wonder what a peanut butter cookie with Fritos in it would taste like. I decided to give it a whirl. Well, it tastes great. Even Chicken Legs agreed! Sweet and salty in one bite!!! The cookies were soft with a little crunch from the Fritos. We both had a hard time controlling ourselves around these cookies! The recipe make a ton, so they are perfect for sharing. I'm pretty sure that I will be taking a batch to our tailgate this weekend.
