Caramel Coated Cheetos From Instructables: Great Or Gross?

Look, it's no secret that we love Cheetos. We also happen to love caramel. But together? We can't decide!

Since you know that we reside squarely in the try-anything-once camp, we're pretty sure we have to give these caramel-coated Cheetos a whirl. Instructables user Pueo really piqued our curiosity by using Cheetos Simply Natural White Cheddar Puffs, which are, to put it mildly, one of our guiltiest pleasures. Buttery and sweet on the outside, salty and crispy on the inside -- we may have just convinced ourselves to make these sooner rather than later.

Take it from the inventor themselves:

Warning, this is an addictive snack! Salty, sweet, light. I made about eight batches and gave most of it away. It was safer for me that way or I would have overindulged.

You can check out the recipe on Instructables. What do you guys think? Let us know if you give them a try!
