  • 1 bag Cheetos Puffs 8.5 ounce bag
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter


  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  • Pour Cheetos into a large mixing bowl.
  • Heat corn syrup, brown sugar, and butter over medium heat. Bring to a boil stirring frequently and allow to boil for one minute.
  • Pour caramel mixture over the Cheetos and stir until most pieces are well coated. Spread Cheetos evenly out on a lined baking sheet and place in oven for 15 minutes. Stir and continue to bake for an additional 15 minutes and stir, repeating this process 2 more times for a total of 60 minutes in the oven. When done, the caramel will be hard and Cheetos will be crunchy and not at all chewy.
  • Remove from oven, cool and break into pieces if needed.
