You don’t need to make a lot.

I made about 50 of these chips because I was taking them to a holiday party, and believe me, that’s plenty! You don’t need a lot of these chocolate covered potato chips…think of them like cookies, or a little sweet snack…most people will only eat a few. You could even cut the recipe in half if you like.

How to make chocolate covered potato chips:

Dip half of a chip right into the melted chocolate, then use a spoon to help smooth the chocolate over the chip. After they’ve been dipped, sprinkle them with the crushed candy canes.

Chocolate Covered Potato Chips Recipe Notes:

  • Potato Chips: Salted ruffle chips work best for this recipe…ruffled/ridged chips are more sturdy than regular chips.
  • Chocolate Chips: Use a heaping 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. You can use milk chocolate chips, semi-sweet chocolate chips or dark chocolate chips. White chocolate would work great too!
  • Crushed Candy Canes: You can buy ready-to-go crushed candy canes, or you can crush candy canes yourself. To do this I place the candy canes in a ziplock bag and crush them with a mallet or the bottom of a drinking glass.
  • If you would like them salty. You could always sprinkle them with a little sea salt to make them salty.
  • Melting the chocolate: To melt the chocolate chips I like to use the double boiler method. To do this I create a double boiler by putting a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water (making sure that the bowl and pan fit together snugly). This ensures that the chocolate doesn’t burn. Add the chocolate chips to the heatproof bowl and melt them, stirring often. This should only take a few minutes. You could also microwave the chocolate chips if you prefer (just make sure to use a microwave safe bowl).
  • Let them sit. Once you’ve dipped the chips in chocolate, then sprinkled them with candy canes, let them rest on a wire rack to give the chocolate enough time to harden.
  • Storage. Store the finished chips in an airtight container on your counter, they don’t need to be in the fridge. Place a sheet of parchment paper between the layers.
  • Can these be frozen? No, chips do not freeze well.
