A DIY Bookish Snack: Chocolate Covered Potato Chips.

Here is the part where I tell you I'm sorry. Because when you start eating these (especially with a book in your hands) it's pretty much impossible to stop. This is the easiest recipe you will ever make. 

I can pretty much guarantee it. It has two ingredients and you don't even use the stove. No. 

You use the microwave.

Chocolate Covered Potato Chips

1.5 Cups of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (you can totally use dark or milk if you prefer that)
Bag of Potato Chips

What to do? 

In a bowl, pour the measured amount of chocolate chips. You're going to need butcher paper to set the chips on to cool. Or a pan of some sort. 
In the microwave, cover the chocolate with a paper towel and warm for 30 seconds and stir until pretty mixed up. This is so the chocolate on the bottom of the bowl doesn't burn and the heat is properly distributed. 
Once you think it's all mixed up, put it back in the microwave for another 30 seconds and then stir again. I had to do this three times, but repeat until everything is melted. 

Once it's all melted, get a potato chip and swirl the bottom part of it in the chocolate until it's all coated. Set it on the butcher paper to cool. Keep repeating this process until all the chocolate is used. Or until you feel like you have enough done and want to eat the rest of the melted chocolate. 

I had to set the chips in the fridge for the chocolate to harden because it's too hot outside for them to just cool by themselves. 

Ta-da! You now have a super simple and super tasty snack. Enjoy! Did you make them? Tell me what you think!
