READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by UnknownChef86

These can be made in a jiffy for a party or just for fun. While it sounds odd, the flavor combination of salty and chocolate is out of this world! This recipe comes from "365 Great Chocolate Desserts" by Natalie Haughton.

I used light ruffled chips and had no problem. I froze them first, and dipped them soon as I opened the bag. I also used sugar free chocolate chips. Altogether, this made for a much healthier snack, especially since I have low sugar, and have to watch my sugar consumption. Turned out perfect. Thanks for the recipe. I had this at my sisters over christmas. Hers was bought, but mine were every bit as good.
