My two little guys can't get enough of this sweet and salty snack that uses just three ingredients and is ready to eat in 15 minutes. The boys like to drizzle on the melted chocolate. Sometimes we replace the potato chips with apple slices. —Jami Geittmann, Greendale, Wisconsin


  • 3 cups regular or kettle-cooked potato chips
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon shortening


  1. Arrange potato chips in a single layer on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet.
  2. In a microwave, melt chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Drizzle over chips. Refrigerate 5 minutes or until set.
