Potato Chip and Pretzel Fudge Because HELLO, DO YOU NOT KNOW ME?


If you are a health purist or whatever they call people who don’t like carbs and you know, food, then you will not approve of this recipe.

If you are like, IF GOD STRIKES ME DOWN TODAY I DO NOT WANT THE LAST THING I ATE TO BE A QUINOA SALAD then have I got a recipe for you!

I love sweet.

When it isn’t salty.

Followed by something sweet.

And let’s top it off with some salt.

I can’t decide what I like, so when I find a recipe that doesn’t make me have to conquer tough decisions (potato chips? Nah. pretzels? Nah. chocolate? Nah. all the above? YES), then I am in like Flynn.

Those chocolate covered Wavy Lay’s have NOTHING on this extravaganza.


That right up there is what I like to call orgasm on a plate.

  1. Yes! Yes! Yes!

    I was trying to think of something I was willing to try to put in small pans to give the whole ensemble as a gift! Boom, here it is I do believe!


  2. Sweet & salty= the BEST comfort food. We all caught the crud at the big family Thanksgiving get together (people leave your germs at home)…so we spent 3 days in bed where I ate grilled cheese sandwiches chased down with a pint of cocont vanilla ice cream and possibly a dark chocolate cherry almond bar and a Sams Club sized bag of chips. Because sick means every rule is thrown out. Does not exist. Give me the sweet & salty. ?


  3. Dear Kari,
    This looks awesome! I have been looking for something easy that my kids can make for the holidays. I think even I can manage this one. πŸ˜‰ Valerie

  6. Oh wow, all my fave foods rolled into one…potato chips & chocolate! Pretzels are pretty good too. Might have to try this for sure! Pinned.


  7. Back in the day, I would eat Snickers and Potato Chips for the sweet and salty taste. Not anymore with this recipe.
