Reviews for Potato Chip Clusters
"This definitely deserves 5 stars. It is simple and quick. It's also delicious. My local store was out of the baking chocolate bars so I used Ghiradelli white chocolate baking chips and they worked great. For simplicity, I placed mini muffin liners in mini muffin tins before dropping by tablespoonfuls. It made for easier transport to the fridge to set. I have made this several times and have got the 3 dozen each time. I think the size depends on what size you crunch the potato chips and nuts.Taste of Home Volunteer Field Editor"
"The 5 star rating for this recipe is easily earned. Just 3 Ingredients never tasted so good. The Mixture quickly sets up which makes it a perfect choice for a last minute treat. The small clusters are sweet, salty and slightly crunchy. Be sure to double the recipe as the original makes under 2 dozen treats. I dressed mine up with a few chocolate chips just to add a bit of color and I also added a tsp of Vanilla to the melted white chocolate. It has been requested for next years Tray of Chocolates.Taste of Home Volunteer Field Editor"
"I made these for a party last night and they are not only quick and easy but delicious. I followed the recipe but my white chocolate came in a 20 oz. package so I just cut it in half. The recipe only made 20 clusters. I will probably double it next time. We loved the sweet/salty flavor. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor."
"I love these! I made it as the directions said and then this weekend my son reminded me that he was supposed to take something for his FFA bake sale. I decided to dip whole potato chips individually in white chocolate and then drizzled them with some melted semi-sweet chips. We dipped a few as 1/2 & 1/2. The crumbs I mixed as samples to get people hooked. Everyone loved them and they sold out in no time!"
"Sweet and Salty. I dare you eat just one. :)"
"My grandson prefers a "no salt" potato chip over regular salted, or lightly salted chips."
"Love your recipes. Always find something I want to try"
"Yes! It is that easy! And everyone will be talking about them. Even people who THINK they won't like them can't eat just one. The first time I made them following directions exactly but had to substitute M&Ms for the nuts. Now I wouldn't dream of not adding candy-- using seasonal color gives that extra touch. Like others, I made out of need to use up chips, now they are a favorite!"
"Very good and clever"
"I first bought a bag of these at a church fundraiser because I was intrigued by the use of potato chips . . . they didn't last long! I just made a batch myself and am enjoying sharing them with others. I want to try freezing a few before they are gone to see how they hold up. That would be especially nice since they are dangerous to have hanging around the kitchen. I also plan to try making some with milk chocolate, a bit of peanut butter and chopped peanuts. Try it . . . you'll like it!"
