Texas Chicken Brittle

Fritos? Yes, Fritos! Funny I know. We ALWAYS have corn chips left over from our lunch packs - well now I have something to do with them (besides throwing them over chilli). 
I know it sounds funny but I made a batch to take over Dad's on Sunday and I got the expected response......Fritos? Really?....with chocolate?.....Umm they are.... good! And they are. Make some up and let me know what you think.
Frito corn chips
pretzels
chopped pecans
milk chocolate
I used a 9x13 baking pan and did a single layer of Fritos, then did a layer of chopped pretzels. Now melt your chocolate (about 4oz) in the microwave and drizzled over everything. Sprinkle with chopped pecans.
Place in freezer to harden up, take out and break into chunks. I fed them to my chickens (my sisters :) )

I saw something like this awhile ago with cashews and I thought it sounded so darn yummy. Sweet and salty together - yum! I'm totally going to make this. Can't wait to see the reaction on my kids faces =o)

Thanks!!!

I've always wanted to make this. It looks delish. I think the first time I saw this it called for peanut butter cups. Either way it looks and sounds super yum. :)
