Potato Chip Cookies

Potato Chip CookiesI love making cookies. They are pure comfort food to me.  There are just some days where the only thing that will make it better is a batch of homemade cookies.  Ever had one of those days??  Besides making and eating cookies, one of my favorite things to do is to put something into the cookies that you wouldn’t expect.  Remember those caramel corn cookies I shared a while back??  Yeah – those were good.

I also love the sweet and salty combination – putting something salty in with my sweet is always a good choice.  I love chocolate covered potato chips – the perfect combination of sweet & salty.  When my mother sent me a recipe for Potato Chip Cookies I knew it had to be a winner.  I was right.

Potato Chip Cookies

This cookie has crumbled potato chips in the cookie which gives it a nice light and chewy texture.  But then the cookie is dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with more crushed potato chips.  Oh yeah!

Then place them on a paper lined cookie sheet to allow the chocolate to set up.

I had to give  most of these cookies away because I would have eaten them all!  Seriously.  Loved the sweet and salty combo and the texture of the crushed up potato chips adds a whole other dimension to the cookie.
