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. Yup! I want to marry you.

    When I tell people that I LOVE chocolate covered potato chips, they usually look at me like I am kinda crazy. I mean really,they are the crazy ones – they are obviously NOT LIVING!
    Seriously though, there is nothing better than sweet & savory. Chocolate and salt!

  2. i first had chocolate dipped potato chips nearly 12 years ago. an ex introduced them to me (back when we were still dating). i may have looked at him like he was crazy, but oh man, he was right on. i’ve rarely had them since, because they are terribly addicting.

  3. I love chocolate and potato chips together and it feels nice to know I am not alone! oh and I will be trying that vanilla sea salt pronto

  4. When you start posting recipes about dipping ramen noodles in mountain dew and then consuming the duo, we’ll wonder about you. All this other stuff if just plain fabulous!! :) And yes, I totally knew someone who would do that–and she wasn’t pregnant. She was an 8-year-old I used to babysit. Not sure what made her start doing that! HA! Keep them coming, Joy!

  5. Chuao milk chocolate potato chip chocolate bars are my most favorite candy ever! Their description: Crisp kettle cooked potato chips and a hint of sea salt, mix and mingle in milk chocolate. And the cost a VERY pretty penny (around $7 per bar). I would love to substitute milk chocolate for the dark in this recipe. Would this be a 1:1 substitute?
