Chewy Potato Chip Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Let’s make these a thing.
The ultimate trashy snack. Chips in cookies!
And let’s talk about how I was so intensely drawn to these cookies that I barely photographed them because I just wanted to shove them all in my face. IN LOVE.
I’m not ashamed to say that this is the first recipe that was born out of a pregnancy craving. Sure, I’ve eaten a lot of fruit and gone crazy for things like tomatoes and corn and all the regular summer stuff. But THIS was a legit weird craving – like I want some cookies but I can’t do them without a bag of potato chips and they have to be kettle cooked chips and they HAVE to be super chewy cookies.
I mean it’s not a peanut butter and pickle sandwich but it’s close.
The whole cravings thing for me is weird. I love food so much and have “craved” foods my entire life – I mean for five years here in this space almost every week there was a comment asking if I was knocked up because I was talking about how much I was desiring a certain dish or flavor.
And now it’s happened!
Okay wait. Actually I think a REAL legit craving would have been if I used salt and vinegar chips for these cookies.
Not gonna lie.
It crossed my mind.
But plain is okay because…
These are just so salty and chewy and chocolatey and ridiculous. The giant rainbow cookie is what I used as a base because just like the box of twelve holey but amazingly soft old t-shirts I threw in my dresser instead of tossing in the trash while moving house – I just can’t quit it. Ever.
If you’re into chewy cookies… and chocolate… and salt? And texture and stuff. DO THIS!
Chewy Potato Chip Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 1/2 sticks, 12 tablespoons of unsalted butter, browned and slightly cooled
- 1 cup loosely packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 egg + 1 egg yolk, at room temperature, lightly beaten
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups crushed kettle cooked potato chips
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda.
- In a larger bowl, whisk together the browned butter and both sugars until smooth and no lumps remain. Stir in the eggs and vanilla extract until combined. At this point, switch from a whisk to a spoon and stir in the flour mixture. The dough may be crumbly but you can also bring it together with your hands. Stir in the potato chips and chocolate chips until evenly distributed. Again, I use my hands here if needed!
- Roll the dough into 1-inch balls (or larger) and space them about 2 inches apart on the baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until the cookies appear set but not browned. Remove and let cool slightly before eating.

P’nut butter + bread & butter pickles = terrific sandwich. I’ve been eating them since I was a kid. Salt & vinegar chips crossed my mind as I read the title. I’ve made chips & chocolate cookies since long ago, but it has been since forever that I made them so thanks for the reminder.
Love the sound of adding chips to cookies!
This sounds too good to be true…I need these in my life!
I love this! I love adding salted pretzels to my choco cookies but these just take it to another level! Yum!
I love hearing about women’s pregnancy cravings – I always find it so interesting! When I (finally!) get pregnant, I have no doubt that I’ll be craving these! :) :)

This looks amazing!! I am so into sweet and salty. My absolute favorite!
You don’t need to be pregnant to crave these cookies! Love the idea of a chewy cookie with potato chips, so yummy!
I am pregnant and these sounded great to me! I had a serious internal debate: regular vs. salt & vinegar chips and the regular won out. Sadly, they just weren’t salty enough for me! Salt & vinegar gets into the next batch….
Thanks for the recipe, Jess!
Can we just melt the butter in the microwave?
A little too dry and crisp for my taste. How can I make this more moist and chewy?
2 whole eggs, large & don’t brown butter

Wow! Never thought of combining chocolate and potato chips together, but can’t wait to try this! Thanks for sharing!
hmm, i thought i saw these on smitten kitchen as well as somewhere else? i love your blog, but any credit to those who posted exact same ideas and recipes before?
Recipes are always tricky when it comes to ownership and copyright. Most recipes are going to be similar (especially when baking) because of the chemistry behind it. Simply put, most recipes are adapted, be it the measurements or the actual ingredients.
I feel that as long as this recipe was not word for word anyone else’s recipe then no credit needed. if we had to give credit for every recipe we have come across (or have not come across), that is like saying we need to credit every chocolate chip cookie recipe to the inventor of chocolate chip cookies.
I don’t believe anyone claimed this recipe for chocolate potato chip cookies to be a ground breaking original idea, or that no one has ever done them before. (I have seen these done by many people) I think these recipes are meant to share an experience, an idea, and inspire people to try something that the poster thought was an amazing treat.
Okay. totally making these. Thinking about putting those new Cappuccino Lays in them. Or just regular old salty crunchy kettle chips. ER my gawd.
Chips and chocolate chip cookies? That’s insane and genius at the same time. I’m sure if my family sees my baking these two ingredients together they’re gonna think I’m crazy.

I am so craving these cookies.
More than Paleo Granola
This is the PERFECT snack for my fiance’s bachelor party this weekend!!!
These look incredible.
I love peanut butter and pickle sandwiches! Sweet, sour and salty pairs are my favorite. Do the kettle chips hold up their crunch? I’m going to try pretzels… I want to make these asap. Thanks for sharing :)
I made these cookies as a birthday present and they were amazing! The texture was unique, but delicious nonetheless. While my cookies didn’t spread out like these ones; they tasted good. I would recommend wearing gloves while making this as kettle chip shards would prick my hand and it was tender by the end.
Hi, just baked a batch of this earlier today, i have to agree with Megan on the cookies not spreading like yours, mine was thicker than picture. I have a few concerns that maybe you can help. My chips were soft inside the cookies but the ones on the surface were still crispy. is that normal? and i am putting more salt next time too as it turns out my Lays chips were not salty enough to counter the sweetness of the chocolate chips (i used the mini chips and am definitely going back to normal size chocolate chips or even choc chunks next time).
Happy baking all

i want to try this recipe, but can anyone tell me how to measure the “1 cup loosely packed brown sugar”? i fear that i might pack more, or worse **less** brown sugar in my cup than is called for in recipe. if someone can just tell me how much the cup of loosely packed brown sugar weighs, that would solve my dilemma…
I came here looking for an answer to this question as well. I’ve never heard of measuring brown sugar this way.

Is it possible to use dry cookie mix and have it still taste good?
