Chocolate Potato Chip Cookies

The hubby likes making chocolate chips (potato chips dipped in chocolate) at Christmas time, when we are making our candies. Only problem is, he eats them as fast as he makes them. Well, I saw some cookies that follow along the same taste combo as that and decided to make some of my own! I made them last year at Christmas time, and they were a huge hit! It's about time to get started on some more! :-)

2 sticks (1 cup) butter, at room temperature
1 cup sugar, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup finely crushed potato chips
2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted

Chocolate Dip, Potato Chip & Kosher Salt Finish:
4 ounces semi or bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
1 tsp butter
¼ cup crushed potato chips
1 1/2 tsp Kosher salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, 1/2 cup of the sugar, and vanilla. Add the chocolate chips and potato chips and stir well. Add the flour and stir to combine.

Place the remaining 1/2 cup sugar in a shallow bowl. Form the mixture into small balls, about 1 tablespoon each, roll in sugar, and place on an ungreased baking sheet. 

Using a heavy flat-bottomed glass flatten the cookies on the baking sheet, dipping in sugar before flattening each cookie. Bake the cookies until light golden brown, 14 to 16 minutes depending on your oven. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Melt the chocolate and butter in the microwave (only about 15 or 20 seconds at a time) and stir until smooth. Dip half of each fully cooled cookie in the chocolate, and sprinkle with crushed chips and Kosher salt. Let dry and harden wax paper or put them in the fridge. Store cookies in an airtight container in a cool place.
