Chocolate-Covered Potato Chip Popcorn

Chocolate-Covered Potato Chip Popcorn

If you’ve never tried a chocolate-covered potato chip you are missing out on one of life’s greatest pleasures. The salty sweet combo is out of this world!


  • 8 cups popped popcorn
  • 1 cup milk chocolate melting candy (see notes)
  • 1 cup potato chips with ridges
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt (or more per your preference)


  1. Pour the popcorn into a large bowl, and remove any unpopped kernels.
  2. Place the chocolate melting candy in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium power for 1 minutes. Stir until melted and smooth. If needed, add additional heating time in 30-second increments, stirring after each time, until the candy is melted and smooth.
  3. Pour the melted candy over the popcorn, but do not stir yet.
  4. Crumble the potato chips over the popcorn bowl (it’s okay to leave big pieces). Using a large rubber spatula, gently stir to coat.
    Spread the popcorn mixture on a large piece of parchment paper or a large silicone baking mat, and sprinkle with the sea salt, adding more to taste if desired.
  5. Allow to cool until the chocolate coating has hardened, about 20 minutes. You can speed this up by placing the pan in the fridge for a few minutes.
  6. Break into pieces before packaging or transferring to a bowl for serving. The popcorn may be stored in an airtight container for up to 4 days.

Cook’s Notes

Candy can also be called candy wafers or candy melts. Here are some brands to look for: Candiquik Candy Coating, Ghirardelli Melting Wafers, Hershey’s baking melts, Nestle melts, or Wilton candy melts.
