10 Things You Wouldn't Think Would Be Good with Chocolate -- But Are

Potato Chips

It took a while, but we finally got bored with chocolate-covered pretzels, popcorn and nuts. And, as we already know, we won't be denied our salt fix. The latest game-day, lowbrow snack to get dipped? Potato chips.

Chocolate-covered chips are fragile and tend to get soggy, so you're unlikely to find brand-name offerings at the grocery store. Look at high-end snack stores or markets, or, if you can't find them, get cooking! If you don't mind a messy project, it's easy to make chocolate-covered chips at home. There are endless recipes available online, with only slight differences. It's the same method used to make other chocolate-coated salty snacks. First, obtain your favorite melting chocolate and favorite chips -- the ridged kind withstands the heat and the weight of the coating best. Melt the chocolate, taking care to prevent scorching. Dip chips. Garnish or decorate however you'd like. Let the chips cool on wax paper as long as you can stand it, and crunch your way to sweet and salty bliss.
