Salty and sweet can offer the perfect combination to taste buds seeking both. Potato chips and chocolate have been called the perfect PMS food, but these cookies aren’t just for those suffering the effects of PMS, they are for anybody who enjoys the combination of sugar and salt. If you are looking to jazz up the taste of a plain old chocolate chip cookie, try adding a new and interesting twist to the cookie dough . Just a note of warning – these are a “love them” or “hate them” type of cookie with no real middle ground. Thankfully, most people I have offered them to fall into the “love them” category.

Shopping List

½ cup unsalted butter -- softened

1 cup packed brown sugar

1 egg

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 ¼ cups crushed potato chips

½ cup chocolate chips

Potato Chip – Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Place potato chips into a plastic zippered bag. Roll a rolling pin over the potato chips until they are crushed into tiny pieces. Add them to a measuring cup. Continue to add potato chips, roll over them with a rolling pin and add them to the measuring cup until you have 1 ¼ cups of crushed chips.

Take out your Kitchen Aid stand mixer or other type of stand mixer. You can use a hand mixer and a bowl f you don’t have a stand mixer.

In a large bowl or the bowl of the mixer add ½ cup unsalted butter and 1 cup packed brown sugar.

Turn on the mixer and mix until combined

Add 1 egg and ½ teaspoon vanilla extract to the butter and brown sugar and mix again.

Add 2 cups of all purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 cup of crushed potato chips, 1/8 teaspoon salt and ½ cup of chocolate chips to the butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla extra mixture.

Mix until all of the ingredients are combined.

Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Use a teaspoon to scoop the cookie dough onto the parchment paper lined cookie sheets.

Place the cookies in the oven and bake 10 to 12 minutes.

Allow the cookies to cool for two to three minutes and remove them from the baking sheets.

This recipes makes about two dozen cookies.


Use regularly salted potato chips – low salt or unsalted potato chips don’t offer the full taste.

You can use whatever your favorite brand of potato chips happens to be.

If you prefer baked potato chips over fried – use them.

Use either milk chocolate or dark chocolate chips – again, it’s a matter of preference.

You can also substitute M&M’s for chocolate chips.

      A interesting recipe. Honestly it sounds a bit to odd though for me. I am just fine with plain cookies :).
