Have you ever heard of chocolate covered potato chips?

I first had these about 13 years ago and fell head over heals in love with them.  

You’ve got the sweet with the salty, the crunchy chip with the smooth chocolate.  

Really it’s the best of every world!

It was shortly after trying these for the first time that I decided to make them myself.  

So every year I make chocolate covered potato chips.

They are unbelievably easy to create and you can really go to town on how to customize them.

Add sprinkles or a white chocolate drizzle as shown in the photo.

If you really want to have fun, then do a peanut butter chip drizzle or a butterscotch chip drizzle.  

Really any kind of drizzle or chocolate dip would work.

My favorite story with these was when I made a large batch of chocolate covered Pringles – my preferred dipping chip.  

After they dried I put them back into the Pringles can and took them to a meeting.  

During the meeting, one person kept studying the Pringles can.  

After a while I finally asked, what they were looking for.  He informed me he was trying to figure out what these were called and where I purchased them as he had to buy some for his wife!

Sadly back in the day, these could not be purchased in the store.

HOWEVER….now Frito Lay makes a chocolate covered potato chip that you can buy – IF – you can find them.  

I will warn you though, they aren’t as good.  There is WAAY too much chocolate and not enough saltyness.  It’s really just a chunky chocolate wafer.  Unlike these, which are salty and sweet, crunchy and chewy – really the best of EVERY world!

I figure WHY buy them?!  They aren’t as good and these are so easy to make and so much fun!  Why not make them at home and then snack on them too!  

These make a fun teacher gift, hostess gift or birthday gift.  

I also HIGHLY recommend taking a can of pringles or a thick potato chip like Lays to any chocolate fondue party.  You wont regret it if you do!

Chocolate Covered Pringles

Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • 1 (56 ounce) can of plain Pringles Potato Chip or thick potato chip like plain Ruffles
  • 16 ounces of melting chocolate like Ghiradelli melting chocolate, Almond Bark chocolate flavor etc.
  • 3 ounces of additional flavored chocolate for drizzle.


In a small pot, melt chocolate according to package directions.
Dip 2 Pringle chips at a time (on top of each other for stability) or 1 thicker chip like Ruffles potato chip.
Lay chocolate covered potato chips on wax paper or parchment paper to allow to air dry (should take about 5 minutes or so)
Put secondary chocolate into a ziploc bag, press out air and seal.
Microwave baggie for 5 seconds at a time. Squishing after each time, until chocolate is melted.
Snip tip of baggie off so you have a tiny hole and drizzle over potato chips. Let dry (about 5 minutes).
Eat & Enjoy!
Store in a air tight container. Will last for 3 - 5 days depending on how dry your climate is.


Dip two chips at a time to withstand the weight of the chocolate. If you do one chip, it will break every time.

  1. These super easy treats are the perfect mix of salty and sweet. Don’t be weirded out by the pringle idea, they are so yummy and addictive. The quirkiness of the combo makes them a great gift or pot luck treat.

    • As long as they are in an airtight container, they’ll last several days. The staleness of these will fully depend on your climate and how they are stored. To be safe, you can always put them in an airtight container and in the fridge. But I’ve honestly never had them last longer than 48 hours…we eat them way to fast.

  2. I tried these before with the chip being ruffles. It is amazing! The more salt the better. I have tried one from the grocery store that missed the boat completely. I think it was lays. A guy must have done it because they seemed to have dipped an unsalted chip and then added a sparingly skimpy dose of salt. I highly recommend dipping chips in chocolate, but to also choose a chip with the most salt. Ruffles was a good choice for this one.

    • Laura, thank you so much for your review! I agree, the saltier the chip the better the treat. The ones at the store don’t have any salt flavor on them and just taste like crispy chocolate. These are MUCH better for sure!

    • Hi! Here in the United Stated they are called Pringles and or Potato Chips as the recipe can be used for both. I’ll be leaving the spelling as it is. But thanks for the suggestion!

  3. Trying to figure out what kind of chocolate to buy, do you buy chocolate bars to melt? I am wondering if you could melt various flavours of chocolate bars. Thank you

    • Laurie it depends on how much money you want to spend. If you want to splurge, I enjoy using Ghiridelli melting wafers found in the baking isle. Or if you want to save a little money, use chocolate almond bark. I’ve used both and they both taste great!
