Chip Chip Candy

A week or so ago, I was at my friends house for our monthly meeting of four ladies. We have been meeting monthly for ... um, wow, has it been ten years? February 2001 was our first meeting. Dang... Well, anyway. My friend had made these great little candies. She wanted us to try them before she told us what was in them. We took a bite and swooned. Creaminess, a bit of peanut butter and crunch. Really nice crunch. Crisp, delicious and creamy all in one. Ah, and salty and chocolate all in one. She said they were formally known as PMS candy. Here's why. They are made with chocolate chips, peanut butter chips and potato chips. I am here to tell you they are really good.
Melt a bag of dark chocolate chips, a bag of peanut butter chips.
Meanwhile crush up about 3/4 of a bag of potato chips, the thin variety works really nicely here.
Stir in those crushed chips to the melted chips.  Spoon onto wax paper.  Chill and eat.  And chill... and eat.. and, well you know.

Yum, sometimes you just have to hide the junk food ingredients from your friends. We were at a luncheon a couple of weeks ago and my girlfriend said she wasn't going to tell me what she topped the halibut with until after I had a was crushed Ritz crackers and butter, and it was sooo good. I'm usually a snooty/foodie but once in a while a little bit (or a lot) of junk is fun!

Oh my goodness, they sound absolutely perfect!!! I don't know where to get peanut butter chips, wondering if I could just chuck some Reeces Pieces in there? Or maybe a tablespoon of peanut butter (or ten). I'm usually a 70% dark chocolate kind of gal, but this is really pushing all my buttons :)

good news--i wouldn't have to crush up my chips, as they're usually in smithereens by the time i get them home from the store. :)
