Ever wondered what you would get if you combined chocolate chips, butterscotch chips and rippled potato chips? No? Me either, but somebody did!
And since discovering the recipe a few years ago from a co-worker (thanks Elan!) It has been top of my list for Christmas baking and pretty much any event where I have to bring something sweet! Not only are they delicious little candy goodness but they are super easy! So easy that Liam and Daddy can make them! (Henry is a great cook, but not much of a baker!)
First you melt a package (300 grams or 2 cups) of chocolate chips and a package (300 grams or 2 cups) of butterscotch chips in a double boiler. (I've been told you can also do this in the microwave, but have never tried that method.)
While that's melting, throw some ruffles potato chips in a ziplock bag (fill a large ziplock about 1/3 full) and give it to your little help to crush. You need to end up with about 2 cups of crushed potato chips. You don't want them crushed to dust, but you do want them fairly small.
When the chocolate and butterscotch is all melted, stir in the potato chips. Spoon mixture onto wax paper covered cookie sheets. Put in the fridge to set.
After about 20 minutes, they will be firm enough to remove from the tray. Try one, they are scrumptious!
I haven't met a person who hasn't said thought this is a strange recipe, but I also haven't met a person who doesn't love them once they try them!
They are so quick and easy to make that they are perfect to package up as gifts or to make for a cookie exchange. (We made 15 dozen yesterday for Henry's work cookie exchange!)
