Caramel Cheetos – crazy good! Only 5 ingredients! You won’t be able to stop eating these! Cheetos tossed in brown sugar, butter, corn syrup and baking soda. Sounds weird, but they are OH SO GOOD! Reminds me of Chicago Mix Popcorn.
This might be the craziest recipe I have ever tried. I stumbled on this recipe while surfing the internet, and I knew that I had to give it a try. Caramel and Cheetos? It was too crazy not to try.
The verdict? It was surprisingly good and very addictive. You can’t taste the cheese once the Cheetos are covered. You just get the crunchiness from it. The best part about these Caramel Cheetos is that you don’t get orange fingers from eating them! The caramel seals in the orange coating and keeps your fingers clean. Make sure you use the original crunchy Cheetos for this recipe. I don’t think the cheese puffs would stand up to the hot caramel coating.
Serve these at your next party. They taste delicious and are guaranteed to be a conversation starter!
