Why this Recipe Works
- You only need two ingredients and ten minutes to make them!
- Melt, dip, and set – that’s all you need to do!
- I’m sharing my best tips so you chocolate-covered potato chips turn out perfectly every time.
Best Chocolate and Chips to Use
Sturdy wavy potato chips work best for this recipe. The chips’ ridges give the chocolate something to cling to, and they’re sturdy enough for dipping.
For the chocolate, use chocolate almond bark. It melts like a dream and makes it really easy to dip the chips!
How to Make Chocolate Dipped Chips
- Melt the almond bark following the package directions.
- Dip each potato chip so they’re half-coated in the melted chocolate, and then place them on wax paper in an even layer.
- Cool the chocolate-dipped chips until the chocolate is set.
Can you use chocolate chips instead?
I don’t recommend using chocolate chips because they are thicker when you melt them. They have stabilizers that help them keep their shape when baked, so they aren’t great for dipping things. Chocolate almond bark will have a nice dippable consistency.
How should you store chocolate covered chips?
Store them in an airtight container in a cool, dry place or the refrigerator. If it’s too warm, the chocolate will soften and melt.
How long do they keep?
They will keep in the refrigerator or other cool, dry place for up to five days! It’s best to store them in a container and separate the layers with wax paper. That way, the chips won’t stick to each other.

This is such a fun recipe! I have loved chocolate-covered potato chips ever since I first had them back in college. Back then we bought them from a gourmet candy store but once I learned how to make them, I save my money and make them from scratch instead!
