Only six more recipes to go on my Holiday Baking To Do List! Uh, why didn’t someone try to stop me when I started that list? It was a tad bit adventurous when you think this is my first couple months doing this blogging thing. I’m so in love with baking now (and blogging!) . . . thank god I love it as I have a lot more baking to complete . . . and tonight is Christmas Eve Eve! Happy penultimate to the penultimate! I think I’m going to have to save the rest of the recipes for after Christmas, or I won’t get to have any family time.
This one is a gooder Sweet. Salty. Sweet and Salty. Sweet and salty goodness.
Apparently this type of treat is big in Eastern Canada. I had never heard of them before, and stumbled upon the delightfulness on ManifestVegan.com. I love chocolate covered pretzels. Strike that, I love chocolate covered anything! I figured chocolate covered chips would be an amped up version of the pretzel treat. And boy was I right! So delicious. If you are a sweet and salty combo fan, you MUST make this.
Here you go:
Chocolate Covered Potato Chips
makes 30 individual chips
- 30 uniform and unbroken salted potato chips (use your favorite here- I used Lay’s Wavy Original)
- 1 bag chocolate candy melts (or chocolate chips . . . I had a new bag of melts I wanted to try out)
Sort through your potato chips and make sure they are all in pristine condition. No cracks, brakes, bumps, folds, etc. Set aside so that you can easily get to them once your chocolate has melted . . . you can eat the broken and small ones
Melt chocolate chips until smooth. I used the microwave on 50% power, one minute at a time. Stir after each minute, even if it looks like nothing is happening, something is!
Dip one potato chip at a time into the meted chocolate, using a small spoon to help glide the chocolate over the entire chip. You can’t dip the chip straight in and then pull it out perfectly covered in chocolate (as great as that would be). I ended up having to smear it on the chips.
Place chocolate covered potato chip onto wax paper. Repeat with all chips until thoroughly covered. Add some colorful sprinkles, if desired.
Let chocolate harden and then serve. I put them in the refrigerator to cool for about 20 mins, then I set them free on my guinea pig friends that were over at my place.
Merry Christmas everyone!
