Chocolate Caramel Potato Chips

This was another fabulous recipe that I had to try for Teacher Appreciation Week... I bagged them up with a sign that said "You Are All That & A Bag of Chips" and they were a huge hit! :) I had to taste test along the way of making these and they were FANTASTIC!! I love the combo of sweet and salty and although they were a little time consuming to make, they were definitely worth the effort! Making these again, FOR SURE!!

Chocolate Caramel Potato Chips
(recipe found on pinterest via confessionsofacookbookqueen.com)

12 ounces milk chocolate
12 ounces bag rippled potato chips
14 ounces bag of caramels, unwrapped
3 tablespoons half and half
Bag of Heath Bar Bits ‘O Brickle

Line baking sheets with wax or parchment paper and set aside. Put caramels and half and half in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for about 3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Stir until melted and creamy. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush the melted caramel halfway down both sides of the potato chips. Be sure to brush only a light coat, or the chips will get too soggy. Place on lined baking sheets to set for about 30 minutes. Melt the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and dip the caramel coated chips about a third of the way, allowing the excess to drip off. Sprinkle the Heath Bar bits on the melted chocolate and place back on the wax paper to set for about 2 hours.
