So easy, no oven. Great to take along. I made a doubles the sauce like many others have. In attempt to avoid gooey chocolate chips, I stirred Nutella in with the peanut butter. Wow! It is awesome!

We loved this and I used the ingredients as written. However, I did tweak the technique a bit. I mixed the corn chips into the sugar mixture (like you do for cereal bars). Then I melted the chocolate chips and drizzled on top. The photo looked like there were loose chips that would be a mess to eat. We loved them, but after 4 days of humid Midwestern weather, they suffer a bit. Not a problem--we were able to gobble them up quickly.

This was the worst recipe I've ever made from this website. The texture and instructions were fine, but the flavor was flat and terrible. It was not sweet or salty, not peanut butter or chocolate, but crunchy and chewy. It all went in the trash. Waste of ingredients.

This was just terrible. I did everything per the directions. I ended up putting it in the garbage.

I used Bugle corn chips. Pretty good. Very sweet of course. I think I would add some salted nuts to it next time

I was very excited to make this unusual sweet. Be warned, if you have fillings in your teeth, bad teeth or no teeth, this recipe is NOT, for you. The flavor blend is ok. But look out for the never ending chewiness of the peanut butter liquid you pour on top. Messy as well. If you put in fridge to make the chocolate chips get firm, instead of being a chocolate mess, you cannot even cut this stuff, it gets hard as a rock. So dont chill, either.

Would chunky peanut butter work? It’s what I have on hand.

I never thought of adding chocolate chips to this. I’ve made this for years. Bigger pan, just spread out more. We call it Gooey Fritos. It’s a family favourite. So yummy.

I’ve been making these for years minus the chocolate chips. I got the original recipe from Taste of Home and they were called Kooky Kookies. They are a big hit wherever I take them. Super easy to make. I will have to try the recipe with the chocolate chips.
