These chocolate-covered sweet potato chips are a guilty pleasure you can feel good about.
I have been tempted by chocolate-covered potato chips for a while now, but I have never taken the plunge and bought them. I do love chocolate and the combination of salty and sweet, but it always seemed a little too indulgent. The other day I got the idea to make dark chocolate-covered sweet potato chips at home, and I feel totally fine about that. I mean, dark chocolate and sweet potatoes are good for you, right?
What You Need to Make Chocolate-Covered Sweet Potato Chips
These are very easy and fun to make. All you need is, well, chocolate and sweet potato chips. Here was my setup. Little toys to keep the parchment paper flat are optional.
Chocolate-Covered Sweet Potato Chips Recipe with Steps
All you need to do is put a few ounces of dark chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave it for 1-2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. I only needed to microwave mine for 90 seconds. The time will depend on how much chocolate you use and your microwave.
Now you just need to get that glorious melted chocolate onto your chips. I first tried dipping, but the chips were really oddly shaped making it difficult to get them evenly covered. Next, I tried kind of spreading it on with a spoon, which worked OK, but a silicone basting brush worked even better. (If you don’t have a brush, just use a spoon.) Basically, you want to paint a thin layer of chocolate evenly over each chip. I left one edge uncoated so I could hold onto it for painting and eating. Gently place each chocolatey chip on the parchment paper until the chocolate has hardened (a couple of hours).

These chocolate-covered sweet potato chips are very fun to make and eat. They are a perfect project to do with kids, and you could wrap them up in cellophane with a ribbon for a unique holiday goodie bag.
Um..this just blew my mind! I am obsessed with anything salty and sweet . . I must have these now! Thank you so much for linking up at Eat. Create. Party! I will for sure be at your link party and will definitely be spreading the word :)
Let me know how you like them, Kat! I remember you mentioned your salty/sweet love in your pumpkin dip post, so I knew these would be right up your alley :)
Genius!!! You’re right–totally health food :-) Looks good around here, Andi :-)
p.s. high-five ;-)
Thanks, Liz! I want to make more of these this weekend. Surprisingly really good stuff!
Yum, love sweet and salty snacks :) This looks really good and sounds like fun, thanks for sharing Andi :)
Thanks, Kelly! We devoured these in no time. I need to make more :)
We make these for Christmas too, but we crush the chips and stir them into the melted chocolate.
Then scoop out a spoonful or two into muffin tins.
It gives you bit-sized treats. You can make a whole bag of chips, and once the chocolate sets, you can stack them on top of each other in air tight containers.
It’s much easier to make, and takes less time.
That’s a really good idea to stir in crushed chips. I wouldn’t have thought of that! Thanks for sharing this, Amanda :)
