Today I am sharing a super fun and totally addicting snack with you: Chocolate Dipped Fritos, AKA Fritos Jets. I’m sure by now, you’ve all heard of chocolate dipped potato chips. Many of you have probably even tried them.

You guys, I thought I had a stroke of genius one day when I put a chocolate chip on top of a Frito and ate it. I thought I was BRILLIANT. How had nobody thought of this one before?!

But then I googled it and I realized that people had thought of it before – it was a favorite snack of the Frito founder, C. E. Doolin. I guess if someone was going to beat me to it, it might as well be the person who made Fritos famous, right?

My friend Amber, from Blue Bonnet Baker has the back story in her post, you might want to check it out. It’s so fun to read the back stories ☺️

These make such an easy snack. All you have to do is melt the chocolate chips with a little bit of coconut oil (or vegetable oil) and dip, dip, dip to your heart’s content. And if you’ve got those fancy (aka convenient) candy melts or even the chocolate that’s ready to melt for dipping, then it’ll be even easier because you’ll only need two ingredients instead of the three I called for.

I mean really, I can’t even stress enough how easy this recipe is! Even your kids could make it! And I’m sure they’d love to get in on that dipping action.

I used regular Fritos today because I like the smaller size. They’re perfect for eating alone or adding them to another snack like trail mix, snack mixes, or even popcorn.

Fritos have always been one of my favorite chips. There’s just something about them that makes them so good. Maybe it’s the size? Or the corn? Or the fact that they’re SO satisfyingly crunchy? They’re pretty much perfect as is whether you’re eating the originals or the scoops. The addition of chocolate just sends them right to the top!

These are the perfect last minute snack for summer gatherings. Sipping on some wine on a rooftop/patio/living room/lake/bonfire somewhere, snacking on some Chocolate Dipped Fritos, hanging out with some friends… sounds like the perfect evening to me. Good food and good times are all you need. Enjoy!
