Caramelized Cheetos

Cheetos are highly addicting but caramlize them and they are downright crazy. These caramelized Cheetos are a great  party snack – they are a conversation starter!

Caramelized Cheetos

After the confusing yet successful Cheetos marshmallow crispy treats, my friends actually requested that I make another wild Cheetos creation. I couldn’t turn them down so I whipped up these caramelized Cheetos for the next gathering. I was a bit disturbed when they did not turn out shiny as in the recipe’s picture but apparently that did not hinder their appeal because they were a popular item without any confusion! Many people said that it reminded them of something, mostly that it tasted like Cracker Jack or something similar. Whatever it is, it’s good. If you were too shy to try out the Cheetos crispy treats, I understand, but you really should give this a try.
