These Chocolate-Potato Chips Muffins are a unique play on sweet and salty

I’m obviously still riding on the high of the Risa Chocolates I reviewed a few days ago by writing about these Chocolate-Potato Chips Muffins today. I think this recipe is a good one to write about at this point since it fits with the unique chocolate flavors of the Risa brand.

I feel like there will be two reactions to these muffins: on one side are the people curious to try, while on the other side are those probably giving this post a skeptical look already haha! I understand it’s not about being non-adventurous. This is just a highly unusual muffin. You certainly don’t see it everyday, and to me that was the draw.

I talked about how much I love these amazing Sweet & Salty Chocolate Chip Cookies before, because they just really introduced a completely different choco chip cookie experience to my tastebuds. Apart from the crunch given by the chips, they also add a certain saltiness that both balances out the sweet and somehow also highlights it. I can’t explain. I’m just such a huge fan of the chocolate and salt combo!

Compared to those, I would say these Chocolate-Potato Chips Muffins are a more straightforward chocolate plus potato chip combo in a dessert. You can really see and taste both the chocolate and potato chip elements in every bite you make.

If you’ve ever had Royce’s Chocolate-Coated Potato Chips, this flavor combo wouldn’t be so new to you. As I mentioned, I am a huge fan of having both sweet and salty in one dessert, so this appealed to me quite a bit when I first came across it.

I can imagine serving these during a picnic or as some sort of afternoon snack on gameday. Or maybe a pool party or something? It’s a fun one!

These really interesting muffins were introduced to me by The Cupcake Project. They are made like any normal chocolate muffin but then are topped with potato chips at the end. I picked sea salt flavored potato chips just to make sure I get the saltiness I was looking for, but I imagine you can do half potato chips and half crushed salted pretzels to top these. (Just like with the cookies I shared a link to above!)

Now because of them chips, these are best eaten on the day they are made. You can store leftovers in an airtight container up until the next day, but the chips become hard the longer you keep these around.

  12. 7. Fill cupcake liners 3/4 of the way full. Sprinkle the crushed chips evenly over the batter. (You may not end up using it all.) Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffins comes out clean.

  14. 8. Immediately transfer the muffins to a cooling rack from the tin. Allow to cool completely since the muffins are best at room temperature. They are also the best on the day they are made, but if you must store them, loosely cover at room temperature and serve within 24 hours.
