What happens when you want something salty, crunchy, sweet and full of chocolate all at once? You break out a bar of Chocolove 70% Strong Dark Belgian Chocolate and a bag of Original Popchips and get cooking!
This is an easy, healthy treat perfect for enjoying alone or with friends.
You will want to break out the double boiler (okay... I don't have one. I put a metal mixing bowl over a pot of water) and toss in 1/2 of the 1.3oz bar (break it up first to melt faster). Stir frequently.
Lay your popchips out on wax paper or foil to aide in quick clean up. You will want to put th paper/foil on a pan since you will be placing this in the freezer.
Taking a fork or small teaspoon, drizzle the melted chocolate over the popchips. Set in freezer for 15-20 minutes until hardened. Enjoy! I kept the leftovers in a ziploc bag with the air squeezed out in the freezer and will enjoy them when I get home from traveling this week.
The chocolate is smooth and mildly sweet, but still retains the complexity and depth of a darker chocolate. I really enjoy the Chocolove bars not only for the poems that are inside every wrapper, or because the way the company got started is so cool, but because the flavor is so intense, I don't need a lot to be satisfied. I am willing to spend a bit more for a higher quality chocolate because it is so much more fulfilling!
Combined with the crunchy potato goodness of popchips, and you have yourself a winning combination. I think I have mentioned before that popchips are all natural and are much healthier than regular potato chips. Their depth of texture also makes them a great vehicle for the chocolate drizzled goodness. I know this will be a go-to when I want something sweet and salty!.
