Potato Chip Brownies

Potato chip brownie recipe

Hear me out: potato chip brownies; it's a good thing. Chocolate plus a crunchy, salty, starchy topping. Yes, please! Last month when I was in New York, my friends introduced me to chocolate covered potato chips. And I absolutely fell in love with chocolate covered potato chips, like, in a big way. And that's how I got the idea to create potato chip brownies. Why not?

Potato Chip Brownies, makes two 8x8 pans (only one is pictured).
Needed: 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon sea salt, 1 cup butter, 10 ounces dark chocolate chips, 1 tablespoon cocoa (I used dutch processed), 2 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, 5 eggs and 3 cups crushed potato chips (I like to used the ridges kind, but you do as you will).
In a bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa. Set aside. In a small pot melt together the butter, 8 ounces of chocolate and sugar. Once melted together remove from heat and set aside. Add eggs and extract to the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Pour in the chocolate butter mixture and stir until just combined. Pour into prepared baking pans. Top with potato chips. Bake at 350 F for 28-32 minutes. Remove from oven and drizzle on the additional 2 ounces of melted chocolate. Allow this to set before serving. *Note: if you are saving these be sure to cover them and refrigerate. Do your best to make sure the potato chips don't dry out and become stale.
