Potato Chip Cookies

If you love potato chips, then this is the perfect way to change up your favorite treat! A decadent chocolate chip cookie with salty, crunchy potato chips added gives the best of both sweet and salty. You can easily leave the potato chips in bigger pieces to make a crunchier cookie or you can crush them smaller like the size of a pea.

Peanut Butter Makes These Spectacular!

Most potato chip cookie recipes simply add potato chips to a basic chocolate chip cookie. I also added peanut butter which gives this that savory peanut butter flavor boost!

This is a sum up of the ingredients to give you an idea, please use the recipe card below for full instructions.

  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed

You can chop the potato chips small or you can leave them in chunkier pieces so your cookies have a bit more salt & crisp in every bite!

How to Store

Store at room temperature in a sealed container for up to 5 days. Layer the cookies between pieces of parchment paper to prevent them from sticking.

Store in the freezer for up to 3 months. Place in an airtight container, layering the cookies between parchment paper. Simply defrost at room temperature to eat.

Happy baking!
