Calling For Christmas Cookie Recipes — 2012 (III)

In response to my annual call for new Christmas cookie recipes, my thoughtful sister Margaret passed along the Columbus Dispatch 2012 Holiday Cookies insert.  It’s full of interesting recipes, include one that I just can’t resist.  How many holiday cookie recipes include a bag of Fritos as an ingredient?

Salty Peanut Squares

Ingredients:  1 package (10 ounces) corn chips, lightly crushed; 1 cup unsalted peanuts; 1 cup light corn syrup; 1 cup sugar; 1 cup peanut butter; 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips, melted

Generously grease 13 by 9 inch pan.  Arrange half of the corn chips and peanuts in pan. In a large saucepan, bring the corn syrup and sugar to a boil, stirring constantly.  Stir in peanut butter until blended.  Drizzle half of mixture over the corn chip mixture in the pan.

Add remaining corn chips and peanuts to remaining peanut butter mixture in saucepan and stir to combine.  Spoon over mixture in pan, then press down lightly.  Drizzle with melted milk chocolate.  Cool, then cut into squares.
