I know, I know. This is not the usual type of recipe I post here at New Nostalgia. There is nothing real or healthy about these Football Funky Fritos–AT ALL! But, sometimes you gotta break the healthy rules and make something junky–especially when it is football season and time for a party!
I started making this recipe about 4 years ago. It is one of my most favorite snacks to take to a football party & with the Super Bowl game coming up I thought it was a good time to share it again with you. Everyone seems a bit skeptical of this snack at first, it does look a bit funky after all, but I always leave with an empty container.
Speaking of containers, you all know I love my mason jars, but they just are not practical for taking along to parties. Enter Rubbermaid Take Alongs. I love having a few of these Rubbermaid Take Alongs on hand. They come in all shapes and sizes, but I tend to stick with the large bowls. I love them for taking along my favorite chili, my famous cranberry spinach salad, or when nothing but a sweet will do, these Funky Fritos.
I bought my Rubbermaid Take Alongs at Target. Target is offeringcoupons for these Rubbermaid products. (You can print the coupons HERE).
When I put the lid on, I can hear a “click” when sealed. Such a reassuring sound! The lids also stack nicely, is always good. The measuring marks I’m sure will come in handy sometime. What I like most of all, though, is that I can be forgetful. If I happen to leave my dish at a party, that is ok! Then the hostess can wash and reuse it and take it along to another party.
The Rubbermaid Take Alongs that I used costs less than $5.00, and came with 2 large bowls and 2 lids. My Target coupon brought the price even lower.
A fun idea for game day is getting the M&M’s in custom colors. Choose your team color and make a statement with you snack!

Pour out the Fritos on a large shallow pan lined with parchment…might want to grease the parchment paper as some had trouble with sticking. Combine the corn syrup and sugar and bring to a boil. Turn down heat and simmer until sugar is dissolved, just a few minutes. Stir in the PB til smooth. Pour the mixture over the chips, sprinkle with candies, and chill for about 30-60 minutes. Break apart and enjoy!
