Chocolate Dipped Potato Chip Rice Krispie Treats #SundaySupper

If you love crunchy desserts with a sweet and salty combination, try Chocolate Dipped Potato Chip Rice Krispie Treats

Chocolate Dipped Potato Chip Rice Krispie Treats #SundaySupper 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! 

Chocolate Dipped Potato Chip Rice Krispie Treats #SundaySupper 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.  

Chocolate Dipped Potato Chip Rice Krispie Treats #SundaySupper Chocolate Dipped Potato Chip Rice Krispie Treats #SundaySupper 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.

    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 =)

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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 🙂
