I’m trying to get ready for Christmas. I’ve certainly got the time for it. I know what you’re thinking: Girl, it’s only October, but who knows when and what the next catastrophe could be, so I’m going to start practicing now.
I’d never tasted chocolate dipped potato chips before. Am I a fan? Probably not. You definitely need the right potato chip. I tried Tim’s and Ruffles today. The Ruffles were a clear winner in my book. I needed the salty to balance the sweet of the chocolate. Tim’s had a way too subtle taste. The chips also needed to be ever so sturdy.
The other problem for me, I don’t really like chocolate. These were good according to G. I actually broke off the bark I had in the freezer. If you see little lumps, those are Reeses Pieces that didn’t quite melt. Why not reuse?
So, I melted approximately 12 ounces of chocolate to start in a deepish Pyrex glass bowl. I wanted room to dip the chips into the melted chocolate. I picked through the potato chips until I found a collection of good shapes. I wish I’d saved the plate after I was done so you could see the clear winners. G ate all the Ruffles and the Tim’s were left sad and alone. Le sigh. Will I make these again? G says yes, but I found the flavor totally lacking. I vote no.
