I found these Limited Edition Chocolate Pop Rocks a couple weeks ago and have been thinking of fun ways to utilize them. I needed a garnish for a dessert I recently made and covering a potato chip in luscious dark chocolate and sprinkling popping candy on top seemed like the obvious choice.
These taste amazing! Everything works together. The salt and crunch from the chip, mixed with the exploding popping candy creates a fireworks-show of flavor in your mouth.
Step 1: Ingredients
1 Bar of Special Dark Chocolate or Chocolate Bar of Choice
1 Container of Lays Stax Potato Chips or Chips of Choice
3 Bags of Chocolate Pop Rocks
Baking sheet lined with wax paper
Double Boiler to melt chocolate
Step 2: Melt Chocolate
To melt the chocolate, place a heavy bottomed sauce pan filled half way with water on the stove. Turn stove on to medium-low heat. In the meantime, unwrap chocolate bar and chop it into small pieces.
Once the water begins to simmer, turn heat to low and place a heat-proof bowl on top. Place chopped chocolate inside bowl and stir slowly until chocolate melts.
Remove bowl from heat.
Step 3: Make the Chocolate Pop Rock Potato Chips
Place potato chips on a plate and pop rocks in a bowl. Using a spatula or silicone brush, gently brush a coat of the chocolate onto the potato chip. Then sprinkle the potato chip with pop rocks. You only need a couple of pop rocks per potato chip. Place chips on a wax sheet lined baking sheet.
Repeat until all of the pop rocks are gone. You may have a small amount of chocolate left over.
Place baking sheet in refrigerator for no longer than 3-4 minutes. You just need the chocolate to firm up a little. Remove from the refrigerator and enjoy!
