Potato Chip Clusters


You could make these Potato Chip Clusters with milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate but I think white chocolate tastes best. Super creamy and it really compliments the flavor of the potato chips.

If you are a fan of sweet and salty treats, you will love these White Chocolate Potato Chip Clusters. The recipe is super easy too!

How To Make Potato Chip Clusters:

Just melt some white chocolate chips in the microwave. Add in crushed potato chips. I use the ones with ridges (Ruffles), but you can use any plain potato chip. I also add in some chopped pecans. They add another flavor dimension but you can leave them out.

Stir the mixture together well and drop it by spoonfuls onto wax paper. There’s no need to put sprinkles on them, but it does make them look super festive and it’s another fun task for young children to do.

Refrigerate just long enough to firm up the chocolate and they are ready to go!
