Best Party Snack Recipe

If you’re a potato chip lover you will certainly want to make this appetizer snack recipe for football game day parties and other casual gatherings.

My husband and I recently had a happy hour date at a local restaurant, and one of the items we ordered was blue cheese & balsamic potato chips. We had no idea they would be SO DELICIOUS!

I’m not a junk food or dessert junkie, but I AM a chip junkie! While other folks are focused on the sweets and dessert tables, I’m over here thinking about the savory snacks & appetizers. And there’s no better savory, salty item than potato chips!

I decided to re-create that restaurant appetizer for our hot dog roast, so I started with our favorite bag of chips, Kettle brand, and topped them in the same way. It’s a great way to dress up potato chips and make them special.

We’ve been buying Kettle brand chips for years and I used the crinkle cut ones for these chocolate drizzled potato chips. I’ve also mixed them with m&m’s for a sweet & savory combo that’s hard to beat. In a nutshell, kettle chips are my jam!

The balsamic glaze adds such a great flavor to the chips and when it mixes with the ranch dressing and blue cheese it’s a marriage made in heaven. These can also be served without heating them up. The heating step just helps the cheese melt ever so slightly.
