There’s something about desserts that have both sweet and salty flavors that just hits the spot- and this goes double for treats that can do all this and contain chocolate. This potato chip chocolate pie has a smooth filling, topped with a chocolate ganache and a sprinkle of sea salt on top. But, the real genius of this dish is the crust- which is made from sea salt kettle chips!
It might sound complicated to make, but it’s not. The first step is to make the crust using crushed potato chips with flour and butter to bind it together. After running that mix through the blender or food processor, press into a pie pan. Try to make sure it’s as even as possible. We sometimes like to use the bottom of a small glass for this.
1 9″ unbaked unbaked pie shell
2 large eggs
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter (room temperature)
1/2 cup crushed potato chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Place your favorite unbaked pie shell in a 9″ pie pan.
Beat the eggs in your stand mixer until they are foamy.
Add in the flour, sugar, brown sugar, and butter. Mix until just combined.
Lastly, fold in the potato chips and chocolate chips.
Pour the batter into the prepared pie shell.
Bake for 55-60 minutes at 325 degrees. Serve warm and enjoy!
