Holy cow, there are only five more days to get ready for Christmas day!  I am soooooooo not ready.  I have a lot of last minute stuff to do ... like wrap all my presents ... figure out what to make for our family Christmas Eve get-together at my parents' house ... actually make what I'm bringing for our family Christmas Eve get-together at my parents' house ... oh, yeah, and actually finish my Christmas shopping.  Fortunately, I have a couple of last-minute tricks up my sleeve to share with you.
My first trick are these super easy, super yummy White Chocolate-Peppermint Potato Chips.  White chocolate peppermint potato chips you're thinking, right?  Yes!  White chocolate peppermint potato chips!  And they're soooooooo good.

The saltiness of the chips combined with the sweet of the white chocolate and peppermint are a truly fabulous flavor combination.

And what a fun little snacking treat!

I whipped these up in my kitchen one afternoon when I was making white chocolate-peppermint bark for my Christmas goodie gift bags I give my teacher friends.  I happened to have a bag of potato chips on hand in the pantry, and decided to see what they'd taste like dipped in the peppermint-laced white chocolate.

In case you're wondering, they taste good, my friends.  Darn good.

And all you have to do to make them is melt some white chocolate candy coating, stir in a touch of peppermint extract, dip the chips ...

Easy, huh?

(Printable recipe)
  • Ridged potato chips (I used Ruffles potato chips ... you want to pick sturdy potato chips)
  • 12 oz. white chocolate bark coating (1/2 of a package) OR white candy melts
  • 2 tsp. shortening
  • 1/4 tsp. peppermint extract
  • Crushed candy canes
  1. Melt bark coating or candy melts and shortening together in the microwave per package directions (typically in 30 second intervals, stirring in between); stir until smooth. Stir in peppermint extract.
  2. Dip each potato chip in the melted candy coating, turning the chip over to coat both sides. Let excess coating drip off back into the melted candy coating. Place on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper and immediately sprinkle with candy cane pieces.
  3. Let stand for coating to set up. {Pop them in the refrigerator for a few minutes to quickly set the coating, if you'd like.}


  1. Tracey, these look absolutely mouth watering! I have got to try these! I wanted to tell you thank you for sharing these with all of us at the Show Stopper Saturday party this week! Have a great weekend! (=

  2. Hello. We would like to make the potato chips with chocolate/peppermint as a party favor and place in a baggie. If we refrigerate will they get soggy or stale? Tank you very much. Katrin

    1. They probably would get soggy if refrigerated. I recommend storing them at room temperature. Enjoy!
