A Recipe: Chocolate Covered Potato Chips

My mom grew up in Florida and every so often we like to go back down, stay in her childhood home and hit the beach.  We just did that a couple of weeks ago and took the girls to visit the chocolate factory one afternoon.  They were making a line full of these babies - and selling them for about $9 per 1/4 pound!  I sure couldn't afford that, so I decided to make them on my own.

They are so simple, I didn't even take pics of the process.

Ghiradelli make a new product they call a "Candy Making and Dipping Bar".  I found mine at Sam's Club.  They make it in dark and white.

Get a box of the dark.
Get a bag of ridged potato chips.

Melt the chocolate per the instructions.  Basically, chop it up, put it in a microwave safe dish and microwave it in increments of 30 seconds, stirring after each time, until it's smooth.

Select whole chips and dip each one at a time into the chocolate.  Using a fork, lift them and tap them until you can see the ridges nicely.

Place them onto wax paper to cool.

Try not to eat them all in one day.  Sharing is always good, your friends will love you even more than before if you do.

(sorry the picture is so bad.  I snapped it with my phone and didn't plan to share it, but they were so yummy!)
