Firecrackers!

This is the kind of snack that you just can't stop eating! Especially if you love salty/sweet combinations! The little extra surprise in this treat is the slight spiciness from the Hot Fries and the cayenne pepper! Its just the perfect balance of sweet, salty and spicy!

I found this recipe **here** but I slightly tweaked the ingredients and preparation! I'm posting the recipe the way I made it!

Firecrackers

INGREDIENTS:
1 (8 oz.) package  'Andy Capp's Hot Fries' or any other Hot Fries snack
15 oz. white chocolate
Cayenne Pepper 

DIRECTIONS:
Line a large cookie sheet with waxed paper.
Melt the white chocolate according to package directions until completely melted. Get the chocolate as liquidy as possible so that you get a thin coating on the fries.
Now this is the messy part...dip the hot fries, a handful at a time, into the melted white chocolate, to lightly coat each of the fries, scraping off the excess if needed.
Individual place them on the waxed paper, making sure they don't touch each other.
Sprinkle very lightly with cayenne pepper. Allow the chocolate to firm up,
then transfer to a serving dish or container.
These will be eaten fast!

  3. Was just wondering where to buy the "Andy Capp Hot Fries?" I live in Vancouver, BC, Canada and have never seen these cool treats before.

    1. I find them in the grocery store in the snack/potato chip isle. If you can't find the Andy Capp brand you can use another brand. 'Cheetos Hot Fries' or 'Chesters Hot Fries' would work also. As long as it's salty/spicy, it will taste great with the white chocolate! =D

    1. No, these 'fries' are similar to store bought potato chips. No frying involved. Just open the package and use.

  6. These sound good, but I avoid buying anything for my family that contains MSG and I know for the fact that those hot fries do ...

    1. Yes, I think milk chocolate could work. I've seen recipes for milk chocolate dipped potato chips and have heard it's really good! So, it should work with the hot fries. Let me know how it turns out if you try it! Thanks!=D

    1. Hi Michelle! This is not a dinner item. It's a dessert. I'm not sure of the calorie amount but it's a lot of sugar so it's probably very high! There are sites that will give you that info when you copy and paste the ingredients onto the site. You can Google it. Search 'nutritional facts for recipes'. I hope this helps. =D
