You are in for a treat today! Chocolate Chips. Now, I know what you’re thinking, “That sounds a little strange, Michael.” However, I promise you they are so delicious. It’s the salty-sweet combo that makes these such an epic treat!
Also, deliciousness doesn’t get much easier than this. What you have here is potato chips, drizzled with milk and white chocolate, plus a few festive sprinkles. To die for.
You can whip up a batch of these in no time and your Valentine won’t even be able to find the words to thank you.. Plus, they look totally adorable in my new bowl.
Before I show you how to make them, here are a couple things to note. The amount of chocolate you use is totally up to you. That’s why the measurements vary below. If you prefer, use dark chocolate, just milk chocolate, etc. Also, I like plain old Lay’s potato chips for this. However, if you like crinkle cut or a different brand, go for it. Feel free to get creative and toss in some pretzels, M&Ms, or whatever else your Valentine likes. Finally, as mentioned in the recipe, I let my chocolate firm when before switching from white to milk. This just ensures the two types of chocolate don’t blend together.
Here's what you will need:
1 bag (10 ounces) potato chips
2-3 cups white chocolate chips
2-3 cups milk chocolate chips
2 tablespoons Crisco
Sprinkles (optional, but highly recommended)
Let's get baking:
On two baking sheet pans lined with wax or parchment paper, spread out your potato chips in a single layer.
In the microwave or a double broiler melt your white chocolate chips with one tablespoon of Crisco. Repeat this in a separate bowl with your milk chocolate chips.
Then drizzle the chips with your melted white chocolate. Add a few sprinkles and allow the chocolate to set. (If it's cold where you are, place them outdoors for a minute. If you live in a warm climate, a few minute in the refrigerator will help speed up the process.) Repeat with the milk chocolate.
Again, let your chocolate set. Then, using another baking sheet lined with wax paper, carefully flip your chips over, so you can apply more chocolate to the opposite side.
Repeat drizzling with the white and milk chocolate, allowing it to set in between. Don't forget your sprinkles.
Finally, allow your chocolate to set completely. Once hard, gently break up the chips into smaller pieces. Store in an airtight container to maintain freshness.
Throw them in an adorable bowl and nibble away.
Again, if you are a fan of the salty and sweet combination you are going to love these. Not kidding, I could probably eat this whole bowl and then some. I know it might sound like an odd combination, but trust me on this one.
So go whip up a batch and let me know what you think!
