This post is chocolate dipped....everything and anything. Chocolate dipped potato chips (you read right), chocolate dipped caramels, chocolate dipped Ritz crackers with peanut butter, and my all time favorite chocolate dipped strawberries.
It's true what they say about salty things taste really good dipped in chocolate. Like pretzels. Everyone loves pretzels dipped in chocolate. But have you ever had salty potato chips dipped in milk chocolate? Hmmm. I have and I can't get enough of them. The first time I saw this concoction was at a homemade candy store in Chatham, Ma about 4 years ago (not too far from my home). They had double stuff Oreo's dipped in milk chocolate, salty hearty pretzels dipped in milk chocolate then dipped again in white chocolate then a swirl of peanut butter ganache. :::sigh::: Then I saw the milk chocolate dipped potato chips and knew I had to try one. It was such a satisfying flavor of creamy milky sweet chocolate with the instant bite of salty. I was hooked on them, but fast learned to make my own since they charged some insane price of $3.09 a pound.
Another wonderful treat to try is two Ritz crackers filled with peanut butter (like a sandwich) then dipped in milk chocolate. Crazy good. I make these during the holidays to give away to clients and friends. They always love them, and it's relatively an inexpensive way to give a gourmet food gift to those special friends and clients we love. Last Christmas I made over 300 of these...and every single one was devoured. I love love love to hear and see my friends and family and even clients devour my food creations. To make the chocolate dipped peanut butter smores, just take two graham crackers spread with pb, then a layer of marshmallow fluff, let harden in the fridge, then dip in chocolate. Easy!
