Me: Where are those chocolate covered potato chips?

Reply to Myself: What ARE you talking about? I have been outside on the porch knitting in this lovely weather and now I am sitting here at the computer working on a blog post.

Me: You know exactly what I am talking about… I’ve got pictures to prove it!!  Would you like to see?
I wanted something salty, so I grabbed a bag of chips from the pantry and then I thought well… maybe not… maybe I really want something chocolate so back to the pantry. Wouldn’t you know it, no chocolate, except some semi sweet chocolate chips.

So as I so often do, I said to myself: “What do you think we can do with this?”

And this is what we did:

I grabbed a few more things

This is what you will need if you want to have chocolate covered potato chips for a snack.

small microwave safe bowl
1/2 cup measuring device
semi sweet chocolate chips
some chips - as you can see I had wavy on hand
wax paper (not pictured) - cause I didn't think of that until I needed it to lay the chocolate covered chips on... duh...

After I grabbed most of  what I needed, I measured 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips into the measuring cup


Then I poured the chocolate chips into my small microwave safe bowl

Then I put the bowl in the microwave on high for 30 seconds.  I did this twice.  Now...  I just want to say don't get impatient and put them in for a full minute.  If you do, your chocolate will burn and trust me.  Burnt chocolate is NOT good.  It will be a nasty mess and you will have to start all over... 

Ok.  Now take the bowl out of the microwave and stir.  When you take the bowl out after two 30 second turns in the microwave, it should look something like this...

Stir this until it looks something like this.

Now you need to put the bowl in the microwave for 15 second intervals stirring between each 15 second interval until the chocolate chips look something like this.

Now dip your chips and lay them on some wax paper to allow the chocolate to harden.


They look Yummy!! 

When the chocolate is no longer soft, you can put them in a bowl and serve them OR you can just eat them off the wax paper. (grin)

Let me run get one and see if they are any good, I'll be right back...  this is what I found...

I didn't get any!!  Where did they go!!  They must have been good.  Hope you like them too!

Tomorrow, I will show you one of the things I have on the needles.  So be sure and join me for some knitting talk.

  4. @Riorita, maybe your family will eat them before you have a chance and the diet will be intact.

    @Sib Studio - they were seriously easy to make and I think they would be a good snack for a small get together.
