These are so addicting. They look like the name, but once you try them, who cares what they look like. Wish I knew how to post a picture!!! I had never seen anything like these until someone brought a bag to my sister's house a couple of weeks ago......Deb posted the picture under the recipe and I posted it larger. This is exactly what the "droppings" look like. THANKS DEB for the picture.

Ingredients

How to Make COYOTE DROPPINGS (Caramelized Cheetos)

Step-by-Step

  1. Put Cheetos puffs in LARGE bowl. ( Butter a large cookie sheet (10x15 or larger). I HAVE BEEN BAKING MINE IN MY ROASTER SO THEY DON'T FLY EVERY WHERE WHEN I STIR THEM. WORKS MUCH BETTER. WISH I HAD TRIED THIS BEFORE.
  2. Bring sugar, butter and syrup to a boil, boil and stir for 5 minutes. Remove from fire add baking soda, stir quickly. Pour over Cheetos and mix well, make sure each puff has syrup on it. Pour into buttered pan, spread out as much as you can. Bake 1 hr @ 250*, stirring every 15 minutes.

    Pour out onto waxed paper, foil or I used freezer paper because it is so much bigger. Quickly separate Caramelized Cheetos. (Try to resist the temptation, but I guarantee you cannot!) Store in large zip lock bags.
  3. I took a box to send UPS and had 2 bags to go in the box. Just for "casers" I took a quart bag and gave to the ladies there, naturally I had to write the recipe for them. SO VERY GOOD.
