I have a thing for crunchy foods. Except in my world, they are referred to as crispities. You know the little crispy bits of french fries at the bottom of the pile or bits and pieces of fried chicken crust that fell off after frying. Those things, I love them; crunchy, flavorful and when you are in my presence, all mine!
For this reason, it made perfect sense to take up hosting duties for today’s #SundaySupper. Crunchy goodness, a celebration of all the good crunchy things in life. Because let us be honest, do you really want to eat soggy cereal or overcooked vegetables? No! You want the crunch! Plus what is your morning yogurt without a little granola on top? Boring. How about a cocktail party with out some nuts? You need something to nibble on while you imbibe.
I think it is pretty easy to go crunchy with entrees or snacks, so I wanted to have some fun with dessert. I remember the first time I ever had a chocolate covered potato chip. I must have been 8 or 9 years old at my Aunt and Uncle’s annual holiday party. My aunt always put out the most incredible spread of food and that year she had some chocolate covered potato chips. Not a kid to say no to chocolate or chips, I had to try it. I was in love, the salt, the crunch! It just made sense to combine that with some rice krispie treats. After all, who didn’t sit and listen to their cereal make the snap, crackle and pop sounds?
Chocolate Dipped Potato Chip Rice Krispie Treats are perfect for parties, bake sales or just when you need a little sweet, salty and chocolate fix. Have fun with these. I broke out the cookie cutters for a few of them and the sprinkles can customize it for any season. As a huge Breaking Bad fan, I couldn’t resist a little blue in honor of their series finale tonight.
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 15 oz mini marshmallows
- 6 cups puff rice cereal (such as Rice Krispies)
- 5oz kettle cooked potato chips, slightly crushed
- 6oz semi-sweet chocolate
- 2 teaspoon vegetable oil
- optional: sprinkles for decoration
- Grease a 9X13 baking dish with non-stick pray and place 1 1/2 cups of crushed potato chips on the bottom.
- In a medium saucepan over medium low heat, melt the butter and marshmallows until smooth.
- Stir in half the rice krispies, then the remaining potatoes chips and finally the rest of the rice krispies. Make sure everything is evening coated with the melted marshmallow.
- Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and press down and out with your hands or a wooden spoon so it reaches the edges and is flat on top.
- Let the krispie treats cool and set up (this can be made 1 day ahead of time and keep in the refrigerator to set).
- If you refrigerator your krispie treats, bring to room temperature and cut into squares or shapes with cookie cutters.
- In a double boiler, melt the chocolate until smooth and stir in the vegetable oil.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and half the rice krispie treat in chocolate and set on the baking sheet. Top with sprinkles if using.
- Transfer to the freezer for 5-10 minutes to let the chocolate harden, remove and store in an airtight container for 3-4 days.

How wonderful that your Aunt was sensitive to the palates of children and serving up scrumptious snacks =) I imagine the salty potato chip would go well with chocolate. You’ve inspired a curiosity, Susan! I’ll have to give it a try.
Many thanks for hosting this fun crunchy Sunday Supper =)

Thank you so much for hosting this week Susan! I am in love with these treats.
What a cool idea! Who doesn’t love sweet and salty combos? Love it!
Oh you are a genius! I never would’ve guessed to put potato chips with rice crispy treats, but it makes total sense. Love the double crunch plus sweet and salty.
Fun! I love everything about these…I’m a sucker for anything that is sweet and salty and crunchy. I could use a batch of this crack for tonight’s finale! 😉 Thanks for hosting this week, Susan!

Oh, I can see how this would work perfectly! Thanks for hosting this week!
So I’m not the only one that goes for those crispities at the bottom of the fries or the battered and fried food….
Nice way to incorporate a touch of salty in the very sweet of a rice krispie treat. Even better to dip it in chocolate. Yum!
Thanks so much for hosting us this week, Susan! Your sweet-salty Rice Krispie Treats look addictive!

What a fun treat! I love the twist on a classic.
I totally support this kinda thing. Hangover food to the max
omg yes the crispitieees!!!!!! Love it! And these look so friggin amazing! Potato chips, rice krispies, chocolate-all delish things!!!
Sweet, salty, chocolate, potato chips,….this is the best idea I’ve ever seen!!
Thank you for hosting this week 🙂
What a great idea! In a recent conversation, someone mentioned dipping Doritos in Blue Bell vanilla ice cream. It sounded strange at first, but the sweet and salt combination is one that many favor. Salted caramel chocolate (same idea) is so popular now too.

Ummm, fabulous addition! Just brilliant – love the chips in this!
Thanks so much for hosting and for making these great crunchy treats!!!

I loved this theme. The only problem is now I have a mad crunch craving! these look wonderful. I’m totally on board with the chocolate potato chip so putting it in a rice krispie just makes it even better!
WOW! I need to start dipping potato chips into melted chocolate, like yesterday. These are incredible, Susan, and you’re incredible for dreaming them up. I love the homage to Breaking Bad too. I cancelled all my specialty cable channels six months ago for Netflix so we don’t have AMC anymore. I’ve been dying to watch this last season. We might ignore our cheapo tendencies and just buy the series on ITunes. I haven’t read a single spoiler and I hope it stays that way until I can binge watch!
Susan, what a genius idea!!! This has to be made in my house where we all fight for the super crunchies! I will just replace the butter with vegan butter yay and my family is in for a treat!!!!
P.S.: thank you for hosting 🙂
I think you’ve managed to get every one of my favourite flavours in there!
Ohmigoodness, I think you need to feed me some of these. Because I need some in my life. Right now.
