Regardless if you are 6 years old or 60 years old, there is nothing better than a homemade super soft chocolate chip cookie. I remember making these exact cookies with my own mom years ago. Ok confession… I maybe made them last week minus the potato chips. Yes, I said potato chips! Honestly, I thought it was a bit unusual at first but I mean, sweet and salty is all the rage nowadays.
The process of the whole thing just seemed wrong, but one bite and we knew we’d found a recipe for unsurpassed deliciousness. Crushed potato chips are the perfect way to add a little zing and something “fresh” to the usual chocolate chip cookie routine. Choose your favorite plain potato chip and give them a good pounding, then just add them to your cookie dough – that’s it!
These cookies will not last long, so be sure to grab one or two before setting them out for the family. There’s something magical about the sweet and salty combination of the potato chips and the chocolate. Any good baker knows that salt can actually enhance chocolate flavor, so adding it to the recipe makes sense, but here in these cookies, it is a match made in cookie heaven. Enjoy!
