Chocolate-dipped Potato Chips?

Chocolate-dipped Kettle Chips.

Chocolate-dipped Kettle Chips.

For a delicious blast of sweet and salty, try chocolate-dipped potato chips as a snack or light dessert. Topped with crushed nuts, salt and cayenne pepper, these treats pair nicely with a bold red wine or beer.

Chocolate-dipped kettle chips

4 ounces dark chocolate, broken into small pieces

1 teaspoon vegetable oil

9-ounce bag salted kettle-cooked potato chips

Chopped pistachios, for sprinkling

Coarse salt, for sprinkling

Cayenne pepper, for sprinkling

Line a baking sheet with parchment or waxed paper.

In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate and vegetable oil. Microwave on high, stopping to stir every 30 seconds, for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the chocolate is melted and smooth.

One at a time, dip the chips into the melted chocolate and set on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with one of the toppings – pistachios, salt or cayenne. Repeat with remaining chips. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Serves 6.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
