When I first saw this recipe, I really could not believe it.... potato chips and chocolate! Have I died and gone to heaven? Well, maybe if they could erase the bloating and weight gain, then yes!
Sadly, this is one of the dishes that you'll have to enjoy in moderation (darn it!) Still, when you've had the week that I had... it is totally worth it! There is always another day for dieting.
In the meantime, console yourself with the fact that dark chocolate is high in antioxidants, which means this is good for you!
9 oz. kettle-cooked plain potato chips
4 oz. dark chocolate, broken into pieces
1 t. vegetable oil
1/2 c. chopped pistachio nuts
1/2 T. coarse kosher salt
1/4 t. cayenne pepper
Combine the chocolate and oil in a small microwave-safe bowl. Nuke on high for 1-2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until the chocolate is melted. Stir.
Line a baking sheet with parchment or waxed paper.
Dip the potato chips into the chocolate mixture, one at a time, and then set onto the lined baking sheet.
Sprinkle with the nuts, salt and/or cayenne pepper.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes, until firm.
Do I need to tell you, its ready for eating and enjoying?
