Potato Chip Cookies

Are you a fan of sweet and salty? Then whip up a batch of these Potato Chip Cookies. They're a chocolate chip cookie that's filled with salty potato chips and semi-sweet chocolate chips! They're soft, salty, and have a nice little potato chip crunch inside them. I have plenty more cookie recipes too.

This potato chip cookie recipe is unique and quite honestly addictive. Also, try my Harry Potter Butterbeer Fudge, hot cocoa meringue cookies, PMS brownies, or my monster cookie dip.

Potato chip chocolate chip cookies quickly have moved up to one of my favorites. I love the softness of the cookie paired with a nice crunch of the chip. My family agrees, these are fun. A great cookie to take to bake sales, cookies swaps, and more.

Ingredients for Potato Chip Cookies

You will need:

  • butter - I typically use salted butter but went with unsalted for this recipe because of the added salt of the potato chips.
  • brown sugar - I always pack the brown sugar in my measuring cup.
  • vanilla extract - Rodelle vanilla is my favorite, but use whatever kind you have on hand.
  • egg/egg yolk - Use large eggs for this recipe.
  • flour - All-purpose flour is a go-to flour for cookie recipes.
  • baking soda - The leavening agent.
  • salt - Additional salt to enhance that sweet and salty flavor.
  • potato chips - I really like using plain wavy chips for these cookies. Don't use the lightly salted kind unless you're making up for it by adding additional salt.
  • chocolate chips - I love using milk chocolate chips, but only had semi-sweet chocolate chips on hand for these. Any kind of chocolate chip will work though.

How do you make Potato Chip Cookies

Start by preheating your oven and lining your baking sheet. Then in a bowl or stand mixer you will cream your butter and sugar until it is light and fluffy in texture.

Bake as directed, and allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before you remove to the cooling rack.

How to store these cookies

Once your potato chip cookies are cooled you can place them in an airtight container and store them for around 4-5 days. You will find the chips go stale before anything else. These are best when served fresh within the first day or two of baking.

Can you freeze Potato Chip Cookies?

Freezing Dough | You are welcome to freeze the cookie dough before it is baked. Just take the dough you won't be using and roll it up into a log. Wrap well with plastic wrap and aluminum foil then place in a freezer bag.

Then when you want to cook just slice off and then top with chips and chocolate chips and bake an additional minute or two since the cookie dough is frozen.

Freezing Cooked Cookies | If you have cookies you plan to freeze, go ahead and allow them to fully cool. Then transfer into a freezer bag or container. You can freeze for up to three months.

The chips on top can sog up, so you can always leave them off and top once the cookies are thawed or go ahead and try them being on the cookies.

Can I use regular potato chips instead of wavy?

The beauty of this recipe is you can use either wavy or classic potato chips. I find wavy chips offer a bit more crunch to the recipe. Where the classic chips are thinner and break down more in the cookie.

So for less crunch factor reach for classic. For more crunchy texture go for wavy!
