Chocolate Chipotle Frito Drops

This is a fun invention that is really different. The sweetness of the chocolate and the saltiness of the Frito go very well with the spice of the chipotle. I like the delayed reaction of how the heat of the chipolte sneaks up on you after you are munching on them. Surprise! It is a flavor bang that is well worth the try. Be brave, go for it.
  • 1 cup Ghirardelli double chocolate bittersweet chips, in bag
  • 1 Tbsp. Crisco
  • 1 tsp. ground chipotle chile
  • 1 bag Frito's scoops, 9 ¼ oz.
  • 1 small ziploc snack size bag

In a double boiler over low heat melt chocolate and Crisco. When chocolate chips and Crisco are melted well with a wire whisk stir in 1 tsp. chipotle chile powder and turn off heat. Place Frito's scoops on a large plate, scoop side up, so you can drizzle chocolate mixture into the scoops. Place melted chocolate into ziploc bag, close seal and snip a small corner off of end of bag. Squeeze drop a small amount into each scoop. Chill scoops in refrigerator for about 20 minutes, or until chocolate is completely set. Then you may store them in a airtight container in refrigerator.
