The Chocolate Dipped Potato Chip

Here’s the difference between you and me.  You’re armed with reason, and willpower, and common sense, and common decency.  Me?  Less so.

Perhaps it’s this lack of common decency that would lead me to dip perfectly good savory potato chips into perfectly good dark chocolate.  The result seems to be a perfectly sinister meeting of savory / sweet / and chocolate.  It’s trouble.  Nothing but trouble.

Remember that time I made Peanut Butter and Pickle Sandwiches and everyone was like, UM… Joy the Baker has LOST IT!  This is that!  Except there’s chocolate involved, so maybe you’ll let this one slide.

You’ll need:

– about 5 ounces dark chocolate, melted

– 1 tablespoon coconut oil stirred into the melted chocolate.  (optional, but totally helps the chocolate loosen and set on the potato chip)

–  2 giant handfuls of potato chips (with ridges are preferred, you know?)

–  vanilla sea salt (very optional, but lovely)

Dip the potato chips in melted chocolate. Place on wax or parchment.  Chill for just a bit in the refrigerator to set the chocolate.  Store in a cool place or just invite a friend over and devour every last one.  Repeat.

  1. This makes more sense the pickle and PB but I have to say I’m not 100% sure? I am still one of those people that has not dipped fries into my shake/ice cream despite the overwhelming consensus this will be magical.

  2. Strangely I was in Japan a few weeks ago and chocolate dipped potato chips seemed to be the ‘in’ snack food. Wasn’t really for me, but a pretty cool eating experience nonetheless.

  3. well, chocolate covered pretzels are a thing, so why not.. I would think the chips would get soggy from the wet chocolate, but what do I know?

  4. 1) These looks amazing and beyond dangerous
    2) I actually really like peanut butter and pickle sandwiches. One of my roommates and I went through a brief phase of eating them all the time back in my single days. Made a nice break from my usual got to meal of fritos, queso, and salsa.
