A recipe for Chocolate Covered Potato Chips. Chocolate Covered Potato Chips, the perfect party food. Happy Halloween! Since I’m not too into sweets, but know that Halloween is one of the biggest candy holidays of the year I thought I’d compromise and present you guys with this awesomeness. Yes. Chocolate.Dipped.Potato.Chips. Okay, so maybe we’re cheating a little because this isn’t really a full “recipe” per-say….but the fact that it’s Chocolate.Dipped.Potato.Chips. makes everything okay, right? You’ll forgive us, won’t you?! I think the only way this could possibly get any better would be to sprinkle a generous amount of  crumbled bacon over the chocolate before it hardens…but that’s just me. A good thing to note:the thicker the chips the better (i.e. ridge chips, kettle chips). Using thin potato chips sort of makes them a little soggy after awhile and I also feel like you kind of lose the saltiness and crunch from the chips, which is one of my favorite parts. Anyways, I hope everyone has a great and safe Halloween, whether it be sitting at home watching horror movies, pretending to not be home because you forgot to get Halloween candy, or dressing up as Whorey Potter and partying it up…..hey, no judgement here!

    This is intriguing… I’m a chip lover, but iffy on mixing with sweet… but this looks so good! Happy Halloween!

  2. Vanessa Not Specified Not Specified

    Awesome – actually reminds me of trips to my Nanas – she used to give us chips and choc at the same time and the salty/sweet taste always intrigued me.

    Beautiful pics too

    I recently discovered Trader Joes has a milk chocolate ones. Too good. Not something I “needed” to discover, but I “need” to just make my own :)

    Anyone who is skeptical should realize this is tame compared to Bacon & Chocolate- and no one ever questions chocolate covered pretzels, the reigning Sweet & Salty Champion.

    And one last thing, if you like these you definitely HAVE TO try the Ben & Jerry’s: “Late Night Snack” Jimmy Falon’s flavor. Vanilla Bean Ice cream with caramel ribbons and little chunks of Chocolate covered potato chips!

  4. The Sweet Cupcaker Not Specified Not Specified

    I’ve had this treat before. It’s fabulous because it’s like peanut butter and chocolate. The perfect combo of sweet and salty. I want these so badly so I can eat them while I watch dancing with the stars and pass out candies to the little ones! Or over some ice cream!

  9. Nicole Franzen Not Specified Not Specified

    Ahhh! you tempt me with the most amazing junk food. I actually had chocolate covered chips for the first time not too long ago. Now an addict. Anything salty with chocolate has my heart. I am a closet pretzel and chocolate eater. I eat them in solitude and would never admit it ;) I think I have a problem haha

  15. Angelica Not Specified Not Specified

    Love this! I’ve bought chocolate covered potato chips before and have found the chocolate to be overpowering and too think where I can’t taste the salty potato chip. I’ve been thinking about this but it’s just been a thought. The photos make me want to go ahead and make these as soon as possible! Thanks!

  16. Purabi Naha Not Specified Not Specified

    I am all over this! My wife will love me forever. Her 2 favorite things. She will like me more if I only make a snack bag of them. Great Blog!

    A Japanese chocolate company called Royce makes awesome choc potato chips too, you can get them across Asia.

  22. Heidi @foodiecrush Not Specified Not Specified

    Oh man. I can feel my pants getting tighter as I type. Haven’t tried Jimmy Fallon’s ice cream yet—I’m currently obsessed with Blue Bunny’s Peanut Butter Panic *youmusttry* but his war with Colbert is compelling me. Love Adrianna’s suggestion as a hostess gift.

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Peanut Butter Panic?! I feel like my boyfriend will love me more if I have a pint of that waiting for him when he gets home..

      • Sandy Noe Not Specified Not Specified

        You MUST try “Talenti’s Gelato” …any flavor but the sea salt caramel is my fav. It is the most wonderful ice cream you will ever find unless you happen to go to Portland, OR and go to the “Salt and Straw” ice cream shops!!!

  23. Madonna Not Specified Not Specified

    I tried these in P.E.I. and the were delicious only the whole chip was dipped in chocolate.

    I have had Royce’s Chocolate Potato Chips and they are absolutely wonderful. Too bad one cannot buy Royce outside of Asia. They’re usually sold out of these babies by the end of the day.

    Why do people leave comments about what they think about the recipe–instead of actual reviews? Who cares if you think it looks great? So what? Try the recipe and then leave a valuable comment. Makin’ me crazy. And yes, I realize my comment isn’t a review.

  68. connie Not Specified Not Specified

    Chocolate covered ruffles – WOW. Another good combination (salty and sweet) are chocolate covered raisins with ruffled chips. YUM! Don’t knock it until you try it.

  69. Karenzo Not Specified Not Specified

    Chocolate covered potato chips aren’t new to me. About 30 years ago, a work colleague brought some to work. She found them at a gourmet store.

  70. joan montecino Not Specified Not Specified

    Haven’t had anything like this in ages. As a teenager, I used to love to eat potato chips and drink a chocolate malt. I must try this one. Sounds like heaven to me.

  71. Anne Carter Not Specified Not Specified

    I love these. Me and my bff Rosanna had them at a chocolate festival. They are so good.
