I decided some time ago that I wanted to try these, and I’m so glad I did! You get salty and sweet all in the same bite. Bottom line: these are good, and they’re easy to make. Make them this weekend!
CHOCOLATE DIPPED POTATO CHIPS
1-2 medium potatoes
3-4 ounces chocolate, melted (I used dark chocolate)
Scrub, peel, and slice the potatoes as thinly as possible. (I used a mandolin slicer.) Let the potato slices soak for 10-15 minutes in ice water, then drain and dry them completely. Heat the oil in a very large, very deep pot until it reaches 300-325 degrees. Fry the potatoes in a single layer for 3-4 minutes, until golden, flipping if necessary. Put on a paper-towel lined plate to drain. Salt while hot. Once the chips are cool, dip them in the melted chocolate. Let the chocolate harden (I popped mine in the fridge for a bit), then serve.
