Sweet and salty is so hot right now. Not only have milk chocolate-covered potato chips found their way onto the shelves of Trader Joe’s, but they also have a staring role in Ben & Jerry’s new ice cream flavor, Late Night Snack. Now, I don’t know about you, but I definitely don’t need to wait until the late-night hours to snack on chocolate-covered potato chips. In fact, let’s do it right now! Well, let’s switch it up a bit and use potato sticks instead, just because they are cool. Aaand, let’s make our potato stick treats look just like dainty boxed chocolates for a sneaky, sweet, and salty little surprise. Okay, ready, go!
Chocolate-Covered Potato SticksMakes 12
1 cup Potato Sticks or Shoestring Potato Chips
12 ounces milk or dark chocolate chips
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave, heating and stirring every 30 seconds until melted. Fill mini baking cups with chocolate, just to line the bottom. Lightly crumble potato sticks into each cup, and then cover with more melted chocolate. Sprinkle with sea salt. Place chocolate cups in the refrigerator until set. Unwrap and enjoy!
