Potato Chip Bark
Do you love salty sweet combinations? They seem to be ever so popular, which is why brands like Snickers so do well. We love that combination- which is probably why I can’t seem to get enough salted caramel these days. But today I’m not talking caramel. Nope- today I’m sharing the latest chocolate obsession here in this house- Potato Chip Bark. The idea came to me one day when I saw chocolate covered potato chips. I had been wanting to make some for a long time, but it just seems so labor intensive to dip each individual chip. So I came up with a better solution. Just sprinkle them on top of the chocolate. You still get the crunch of the chip, it’s incredibly delicious & a huge time saver too. Win Win! I especially love just how quickly I can make this AND it’s a great use for all those tiny chip pieces in the bottom of the bag that are virtually un-dippable. That makes me happy because I hate wasting things. So I usually give those tiny pieces to the kids. But now I can give them these instead.
Honestly – I can’t even express just how amazing this is. WOW – I can’t wait to make this for our next potluck. I know it will be gone before I can walk across the room.
- 2-1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
