A while back, Trader Joe’s was selling chocolate covered potato chips. After seeing it in their flyer, I immediately went to go get it, only to find they were all sold out.
I remember checking back a few more times and not finding it. I don’t know why I thought of it the other day. And it made me think. Why did I keep looking for it? Why not make my own? It’s just potato chips and chocolate.
So I did. I’m really starting to enjoy making things on my own rather than buying these days. I like having the control of the ingredients I use and being able to make variations I can’t find in store.
For these, I used kettle chips. I love love kettle chips and their extreme crunchiness. They are also sturdier and thicker, so less likely to break. I used the original flavor, and I used semisweet chocolate. But you can use whatever flavor of chips and chocolate you want.
Uneaten ones are best kept in the freezer to keep the chocolate from getting messy. I loved the combination of the crunchy sweet and salty.
Chocolate Covered Potato Chips
1 individual snack bag of kettle chips
1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips
1. Microwave chocolate in microwave glass bowl for 30 seconds. Stir with wooden spoon. Microwave for an additional 30 seconds and mix again. If chocolate still has little lumps, microwave a little longer, but careful not to over cook chocolate. Stir until chocolate is melted and smooth.
2. Dip chips one at a time, until coated in chocolate. Place gently on a sheet of parchment paper. Place in freezer to let chocolate set. Store uneaten chocolate chips in freezer.
