Carob Covered Potato Chips + Giveaway!

Carob Covered Potato Chips

If you read blogs, I’m sure you know all about Sally’s Baking Addiction. She has pretty much taken over the internet, and with good reason, she makes fun, amazing treats that make our mouths water.

As if Sally wasn’t busy enough, she also managed to write two cookbooks. Her latest cookbook is Sally’s Candy Addiction. You know I am obsessed with candy, so I’m sure you also know I was super excited to hear about this book. There are so many recipes I want to try from Caramel Apples to Sally’s favorite Maple Walnut Fudge.

Sally's Candy Addiction

Sally took some time to do an email interview with me, even though she is currently on a book tour. Thanks Sally!

She told me her favorite recipe and that pumpkin fudge is something she’d still like to perfect, which I’m sure she will. I also want to check out the Salt Water Taffy recipe, it’s something I have always wanted to try to make, and Sally says it’s challenging but doable, if you have a friend to help. It looks like Mom and I have a baking project!

Carob Covered Potato Chips

I was wondering how Sally managed to post new recipes on her blog and write a cookbook. She says it was mostly just a lot of hard work, long days, and oh yeah, coffee. She even does the dishes most of the time, though says her husband helps.

She also stays active. I definitely relate to this. Not only does it counterbalance all the treats, but it also offers a welcome respite from kitchen time. Sally enjoys walking her dog and hiking with her husband. I can definitely attest to the fact that baking, photographing, and cleaning up (Sally mentions vacuuming sprinkles :)) is also a workout.

I can see why Sally has created a baking blog empire. She has fun recipes and a fun attitude to match. She backs that up with hard work and dedication, and amazing things have happened for her. I can’t wait to see what she’ll do next … I hear a third cookbook will soon be in the works!

Carob Covered Potato Chips

To celebrate Sally’s Candy Addiction, I made Carob Covered Potato Chips. Clearly you should feel free to use chocolate like Sally if you’re not allergic like me. Whatever you use, be sure to make these. They are so simple to make, but so tasty. They’re even gluten free. I think they would be an awesome Christmas gift … if you can manage not to eat them all.

I put my own spin on them by using Kettle Organic Sea Salt chips instead of ones with ridges and I skipped the sprinkles, but you shouldn’t. Everything needs sprinkles! I also melted the carob with shortening. This is an easy way to be sure that your carob or chocolate will melt perfectly!

Continuing the celebration, Sally and her publisher have agreed to give one lucky reader a copy of Sally’s Candy Addiction.

Carob Covered Potato Chips

Carob Covered Potato Chips + Giveaway!

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 1 minute

Total Time: 16 minutes

Yield: Varies

Ingredients

5 ounces carob (or chocolate) chips

1 tablespoon vegetable shortening

5 ounce bag Kettle Organic Sea Salt Chips

Instructions

Line a baking sheet with parchment.

Melt the carob or chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl with the shortening in 30 second increments until smooth and creamy.

Dip each chip about half way into the carob or chocolate. I loved using the rolled ones (they’re always my favorite), and filling ones with holes with extra carob.

Place coated chips on the baking sheet and allow to set about 1 hour. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

Notes

  1. Fun! Sally is so nice – awesome that she took the time to do an interview with you while she’s so busy! Favorite candy… hmmm…. I don’t know if I can select just one 😉 I love Snickers as a commercial candy but I also love homemade fudge. And these chips look really tasty as well!

  15. This is perfect for football season, the greatest combo of them all – chocolate and chips. Although, when I melt the chocolate in the microwave it doesn’t seem to harden later on. I don’t know if I’m the only one who has this problem. If you have it too, just put the chocolate in a bowl and put that bowl in a hot water.

  29. I CAN’T JUST CHOOSE ONE FAVORITE. IT ALL DEPENDS ON MY MOOD AT THE TIME. SOMETIMES IT’S BOSTON BAKED BEANS OR SPICE DROPS. OTHER TIMES IT MIGHT BE 3 MUSKETEERS OR BUTTERFINGER. THE LIST GOES ON AND ON. SEE’S CANDIES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN MY FAVORITE CANDY SHOP. CANDY BRINGS FOND MEMORIES, MY PATERNAL GRANDPARENTS ALWAYS HAD THOSE ORANGE MARSHMALLOW PEANUTS AND ORANGE SLICE CANDIES. MY MATERNAL GRANDPARENTS ALWAYS HAD NEOPOLITAN COCONUT CANDIES. MY MOM ALWAYS MADE THE BEST PEANUT BRITTLE AND FUDGE. MY DAD ALWAYS BOUGHT US ALL A PEPPERMINT PATTIE WHEN WE WENT OUT FOR DINNE. DAD LIKED CHRISTMAS RIBBON CANDY AND GRAPE SUCKERS. WHEN WE WENT TO THE PIER FOR FISH AND CHIPS WE WOULD GET SALT WATER TAFFY. MY UNCLE WOULD GIVE MY COUSINS AND ME A QUARTER WE WOULD GO TO THE DRUGSTORE AND BUY A BAG FULL OF PENNY CANDY TO SHARE.

  50. What a lovely interview. I remember pulling taffy with my dad about this time of year when I was a kid. I didn’t like eating it because it would stick to my teeth but I loved pulling the hot taffy.

    Sally is definitely a legend and in honor of this interview, I’ll make these chips. 🙂

    • It’s so great that you still have memories about making the taffy. Food is such a powerful thing. Thanks for stopping by, Maureen!
