I know you might be thinking I’m crazy right about now…
But I just had to give it a whirl!
The sweetness of my grandmother’s famous chocolate chip cookies were calling my name. But I needed to get my salty fix too. What is a girl to do?
BAKE! (Then again, baking is my answer to a lot of things!)
I wanted to get creative and combine two of my favorites – chocolate covered potato chips and my grandmother’s chocolate chip cookies.
Why mess with a good thing you say?!? Why not just make the recipe as it was intended?
Because I love to try new things! I want to experiment and have fun in my kitchen!
So I say to you… WHY NOT!?!
Chocolate Covered Potato Chip Cookies:
- 2 c. all-purpose flour
- 3/4 tsp. baking powder
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 c. butter
- 2 large eggs
- 1 2/3 c. brown sugar packed
- 2 tbsp. light corn syrup
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- chocolate chips or chocolate melts of your choice
- Potato chips (I used Ruffles because they are thicker than regular chips)
First, prepare the chocolate covered potato chips.
Cream the butter and brown sugar. Add the eggs, vanilla and corn syrup and mix well. Add in all dry ingredients. Mix into smooth cookie dough. Finally, they are ready to meet! Potato, meet your new friend, cookie dough…Stir in the chocolate covered potato chips. Don’t worry if they begin to break. The flavor is all the same! Stir together well. Drop dough by the spoonful onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden.
Makes 2 – 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
Again, you know my philosophy on desserts… best served with ice cream or a cup of milk!
You know you want to give this a try! Your taste buds will thank you for the experiment! Mine begged me for more and more!
P.S. Does it count as a whole cookie if it broke when I moved it from the cooling rack and I ate a section here and a section there and then… well yeah, maybe that was a whole a cookie after all.
Enjoy! (As many as you want to believe you enjoyed. Sometimes it is just best to lose count!)
