Chocolate Potato Chip Cookies

We were all a bit skeptical of the thought of potato chips in cookies, but the taste and texture of these cookies were fantastic. The kids loved them, along with the adults. They may seem strange but give them a shot. Be sure to use plain, thin potato chips. Enjoy!

  1. These look awesome!

    My step-son requested potato chip cookies and I had a recipe I was saving, but I haven't been able to find it! We tried a Paula Deen recipe but they turned out flat and greasy 🙁 These, however look wonderful and I can't wait to try them! Thank you for sharing, there will be happy campers at my house!
