Chocolate Covered Potato Chip Popcorn- White chocolate and milk chocolate drizzled over salty sweet popcorn and crunchy potato chips- out of this world!

Chocolate Covered Potato Chip Popcorn Recipe

Salty and sweet HEAVEN! I can remember the very first time I had chocolate-covered popcorn. About 10 years ago some friends were giving away homemade Christmas gifts of little tins filled with the confection. I was immediately puzzled. I couldn’t wrap my brain around popcorn that was sweet instead of savory. Upon first taste my whole popcorn world was changed in an instant!

The following year I was making my own tins of chocolate covered popcorn and bringing it to every social function that we were invited to. My favorite combination was white chocolate covered popcorn, so I knew that I needed to swap out some milk chocolate for white in this Chocolate Covered Potato Chip Popcorn recipe. I read cookbooks like most people read novels (especially when my good friends are the authors!) and I can tell you that I honestly couldn’t put down Party Popcorn by Ashton Swank (Something Swanky blog).

Can a cookbook be a page-turner? A book that lights you up with joy and anticipation after each page? Yes it can! If you are a popcorn fanatic then you need to step away from the butter and salt. Try peanut butter, chocolate, powdered sugar, trail mix add-ins, and even crushed Doritos! Ashton says she thinks that popcorn and potato chips kind of belong in the same world- and oh she is speaking the truth!!

Can you even look at these two beauties without wanting to reach in a take a bite?! Thanks to Ashton and her treats I added a few more weekly miles to my treadmill last week.

Chocolate Covered Potato Chip Popcorn Recipe- sweet and salty perfection

Chocolate Covered Potato Chip Popcorn

White chocolate and milk chocolate drizzled over salty sweet popcorn and crunchy potato chips- out of this world!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 8 cups


  • 8 cups popped popcorn
  • 1 cup milk chocolate melting candy
  • 1 cup potato chips with ridges
  • 1/2 tsp coarse sea salt


  • Pour the popcorn into a large bowl, and remove any unpopped kernels.
  • Place the chocolate melting candy in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium power for 1 minutes. Stir until melted and smooth. If needed, add additional heating time in 30-second increments, stirring after each time, until the candy is melted and smooth.
  • Pour the melted candy over the popcorn, but do not stir yet.
  • Crumble the potato chips over the popcorn bowl (it's okay to leave big pieces). Using a large rubber spatula, gently stir to coat.
  • Spread the popcorn mixture on a large piece of parchment paper or a large silicone baking mat, and sprinkle with the sea salt, adding more to taste if desired.
  • Allow to cool until the chocolate coating has hardened, about 20 minutes. Break into pieces before packaging or transberring to a bowl for serving. The popcorn may be stored in an airtight container for up to 4 days.

    Did you know that in Germany sweet popcorn is far more common than salty one? You get only the sweet variety at the movies. So imagine how I felt when I went to watch my first movie in the US, wanted to get some sweet popcorn and the guy on the other side of the counter looked like I had just requested a steak with fries. (Up to today I still haven’t had any salty popcorn.)
