Potato Chip & Chocolate Chip Cookies

Print Friendly

Chocolate chip cookies with salty bits of potato chips...

Salty and sweet… sometimes the two go together amazingly!  When I was a kid, I remember dipping hot McDonald’s french fries into my chocolate milkshake – yum!  People used to look at me strangely when I did that, but it didn’t matter…

These cookies are one of my favorites – salty and sweet, with just a little bit of crunch.  And if you eat them straight out of the oven, they are also soft, warm, and gooey on top of that!

You can use about 2 snack sized bags of Lay’s Potato chips (or any regular potato chip) – or about 1 c. crushed chips.  Don’t forget to flatten the cookie balls before baking with the bottom of a glass or your fingers.
