Chocolate Dipped Potato Chips

2

December 16th is National Chocolate Covered Anything, in case you didn’t know 😉

I welcome any excuse to celebrate chocolate, so this day is a natural fit for me.  It is also impeccable timing considering the dessert that I made three times this past weekend was: Chocolate Covered Potato Chips.

A perfect combination of salty and sweet, this super easy and low cost treat can be made in a hurry using 3 ingredients, and will totally impress your family and friends!

Ingredients:

1 bag thick cut ruffle potato chips

150g chocolate – I used half of a large Lindt milk chocolate bar.

2-3 chocolate bars of your choice – I used Skor bits, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and a Hershey’s Cookies n’ Cream bar

Instructions:

  • Lay a piece of parchment paper over a baking sheet
  • Break chocolate bars into small pieces and dice, or grind in food processor until you have small enough pieces to dip chips into
  • Prepare potato chips in a bowl that allows you easy access for dipping
  • Break melting chocolate into small pieces and heat low and slow in a sauce pan.  Feel free to use a double boiler if you have one. It’s important to stir continuously so the chocolate doesn’t burn.  I added a tablespoon of water to thin out the chocolate a bit.
  • Dip individual potato chips into chocolate, then into crushed candy bar topping
  • Lay flat on baking sheet
  • Put baking sheet into fridge for 15-20 minutes
  • Eat!
