Potato Chip Brownies Recipe

Potato chip brownie recipeHear 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? 

Potato chip browniePotato Chip Brownies, makes two 8×8 pans (only one is pictured).

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.

  • Made these a couple days ago and everyone loved them. I also have those forks you have in the picture.

  • Baking these RIGHT NOW. It’s possible I’ve never been so eager for my oven timer to ring.

  • When I was little my mom & I used to eat Mayfield vanilla icecream, Hershey’s chocolate syrup, & Lay’s potato chips at night while watching HeeHaw & Lawrence Welk. The salty + sweet combination really is hard to beat! I may have to make these for her birthday in a couple weeks!

  • Made these brownies today and they were AMAZING!! Awesome idea, I have a new love! Thank you! 🙂

  • This looks so delicious I have made potato cake before which was actually really nice the only thing that was missing was the chocolate coating was a bit to thin!


  • This looks so amazing. One my favorite snacks as a child, and still today, is chocolate-covered potato chips. Divine.

  • i’m hearin’ ya and i’m totally making these!

  • Yummy! I love it that you guys make recipes sound so easy to make.

  • Oh that sounds interesting! 🙂 Maybe I’ll try it tomorrow 😉
    But I think I’ll start with a little amount of dough… 🙂

  • You have paper under the brownies in the pan on the bottom picture. Is it parchment paper? Wax paper? I’ve never done that before, but I assume it’s to keep the brownies from sticking. I usually just use spray. Can you clarify your method here? Thanks!

  • This is so ironic! I was just at the grocery store checking out the Ben and Jerry’s ice cream flavors and almost bought the one with chocolate covered potato chips inside! The combination of salty and sweet gets me every time. Can’t wait to try these brownies! xoxo


  • oh yum! I’m a HUGE fan of mixing sweet and salty 🙂 and I can’t wait to try this!

  • my mom makes potato chip cookies- they taste like salty pecan sandiet- so good but oh so bad!

  • this actually sounds pretty good. It sounded gross in the beginning because I hate when you mix opposite tastes together, but it sounded better along the way cos then it works with each other at the same time. So gonna try this soon!


    I LOVE Ben & Jerry’s Late Night Snack with the potato chips and such in it!
    love how good the crunch tastes with chocolate! I am excited to try!

  • I’m having a party soon, how many people do you think this would feed? I’m trying to decide how many batches to make.. looks delic.

  • I never would have thought about mixing potato chips with a brownie. you keep amazing me Emma. could this recipe work with different kind of potato chips. I assume you used the natural flavoured ones, would salt and vinegar chips also work?
