Chocolate-Covered Potato Chips

If you are a fan of salty-sweet (and really, who ISN'T?), then you are going to love this snack. And it couldn't be any easier.

Simply melt your favorite chocolate (dark, milk, white) and dip your favorite potato chips. Sprinkle with your favorite toppings and let set.

It's that simple!

I went with rainbow nonpareils, toffee bits, flaky sea salt and white chocolate drizzle—but the sky's the limit!

These would be equally delicious sprinkled with toasted coconut, chopped peppermints or chopped nuts, too.

And you will be voted "best guest ever" if you show up with a jar of these treats!
