Hear me out: potato chip brownies; it's a good thing. Chocolate plus a crunchy, salty, starchy topping. Yes, please! Earlier this year we made a big batch of chocolate covered potato chips for a party we were throwing. And I absolutely fell in love with chocolate covered potato chips, like, in a big way. And that's how I got the idea to create potato chip brownies. Why not?
Needed: 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon sea salt, 1 cup butter, 10 ounces dark chocolate chips, 1 tablespoon cocoa (I used dutch processed), 2 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, 5 eggs and 3 cups crushed potato chips (I like to used the ridges kind, but you do as you will).
In a bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa. Set aside. In a small pot melt together the butter, 8 ounces of chocolate and sugar. Once melted together remove from heat and set aside. Add eggs and extract to the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Pour in the chocolate butter mixture and stir until just combined. Pour into prepared baking pans. Top with potato chips. Bake at 350 F for 28-32 minutes. Remove from oven and drizzle on the additional 2 ounces of melted chocolate. Allow this to set before serving. *Note: if you are saving these be sure to cover them and refrigerate. Do your best to make sure the potato chips don't dry out and become stale.
