Chocolate Coated Potato Chips

You know how sometimes you just get the urge to dunk something in chocolate?

Those moments of divine inspiration when you’re just like… “Holy guacamole, _________ would be off the chain if it were gift-wrapped in a chocolate shell.”
Merry Christmas to my mouth.

I have those moments often.

There’s a vast horizon of outside influences that can evoke such sweet sensations…

Drunkenness, pregnancy, awesome fattitude, romantic hardships, severe celebratory euphoria, final exams. Whatever, the usual.

For many, these urges might at first seem rather    unnatural.

But let me assure you, they are not. Not at all.

There is a perfectly logical explanation for your stomach’s chocolate-geared instincts.

What you have to understand is that on this wicked earth exists 2 perfect foods:

  1. Chocolate
  2. Bacon
These two food items are what I consider ultimate enhancers. Within their own categories, chocolate and bacon hold the  power to take  just about any food to the next level.
I dare you to find a sweet recipe that isn’t better with chocolate…
Not happening.
Can you honestly  think of a salty dish that would not be improved with the addition of bacon?
Bet you can’t.
And on a great many occasions, chocolate and bacon  are mighty enough to cross right over into one another’s areas of expertise on the tongue.
Right now for example…

Chocolate coated potato chips. They seemed like the right thing to do.

And as long as I remember the golden rule (chocolate and bacon make everything better), I know this is the right thing to do.

Remember the golden rule my friends, and you shall go far.

Chocolate Coated Potato Chips

  • 1 can (6 oz)  original Pringles potato chips
  • 16  ounces milk chocolate
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 4 ounces white chocolate
Line 2-3 baking sheets with wax paper and set aside.
Carefully melt the milk chocolate and butter over low heat, stirring constantly. Once melted, dip each chip to coat the top side. Set coated on prepared baking sheets and allow chocolate to harden.
Once all the chips have been coated and hardened, melt the white chocolate. Using a fork, decoratively drizzle the melted white chocolate over the chips. Store in an air tight container.
