Ingredients

  • 3 cups milk chocolate candy melts
  • 1/2 cup crushed ripple potato chips
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 T. butter room temperature
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

Instructions

  • Place your chocolate candy melts in a glass microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Repeat microwaving in 30 second intervals and stirring afterwards until the chocolate is completely smooth.
  • Add about 1 - 1 1/2 tablespoons of melted chocolate into each cavity. Spread the chocolate up the sides of the cavity and into the corners. Make sure that everything is coated well and there are no bare spots.
  • Let the chocolate drive and work on the filling.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, add in the crushed ripple potato chips, peanut butter, and butter. Stir until thoroughly incorporated.
  • Add in the powdered sugar and salt. Stir until combined. I used my hands to incorporate the powdered sugar because it was quicker.
  • Once the chocolate has hardened, fill each cavity with the peanut butter filling. Leave a small gap at the top of the cavity to cover with more chocolate.
  • Once all 9 cavities are filled, add another layer of chocolate candy melts to each cavity. If the candy melts have harden, reheat them by microwaving them for 30 seconds and stirring.
  • Using a spatula, spread the chocolate to evenly coat the cavities. Scrape off any excess chocolate.
  • Let the chocolate dry completely.
  • Pop the bars out of the mold.
