Chocolate Covered Potato Chips

Pin It

Salty, sweet, and crunchy... everything a great snack should be.  This special indulgence includes crunchy potato chips covered in luxurious chocolate.


  • 1 bag ridged potato chips
  • 1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips


In a Double Boiler (or a heat-safe glass bowl on top of a pot of simmering water) melt the chocolate chips, stirring occasionally.

When the chocolate has melted, remove the bowl from the heat.

One at a time, lay a chip into the melted chocolate, and press down slightly (make sure that your hands are clean.)

With your fingers (or a spoon), cover the rest of the chip with chocolate, making sure that it gets into all the crevices.

Remove the covered chip from the chocolate, and using your fingers, gently remove the excess chocolate.

Place the covered chips on a plate (or cookie sheet) lined with wax paper.

Place the chips in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to allow the chocolate to harden.

Simple as that!  What a delicious sweet treat that is a great addition to your movie night.


  1. this should be interesting..salt and sweet, crisp and smooth. Cool!

  2. I had these at a party once and they were awesome!!! For me, they beat out the brownies. It looks messy, but so is making bread. YUMMY!

  3. Oh now this is dangerous! I remember the first time I heard of these, I thought they were the strangest thing. Then I tasted them, and I'm pretty sure my life hasn't been the same since.

  4. I saw on Martha Stewart that these are now one of the flavor lines for Ben and Jerrys ice cream. Not sure how they would do in ice cream, but I know they are delicious by themselves. Yum!

  5. These are so good, so addicting too! These are quite messy to make, but the end result is so worth it!

    The Ben and Jerry's ice cream, Late Night Snack, has been on my list of things to try for months now, I hear that it is pretty good.

  9. You had me at "Chocolate". So, I stopped by to say thank you for the friend request and add on FB. But of course I also stopped by to visit and drool. Chocolate makes life, love and food wonderful. Your dipped chips are inspirational. I will be back regularly.
    My blog is also about food but with my musings on life and relationships. Please stop by. Visit. Maybe follow. BTW, chocolate is one addiction I have every intention of fully satisfying. Ciao!

  10. Cafe Dietitian, this treat is quite the perfect combo of salty, sweet, and crunchy.

    You said it Mario, chocolate does make everything wonderful! Everything.
