Potato Chip Pumpkin Patch that is!
Now if you're like me and are yucked out by the very thought of eating pumpkin, you will be happy to know these are made with white chocolate!
Have you ever seen chocolate covered chips in a candy shop? Yes? Me too! So how about we decorate and cute some up for fun?! Plus I have a few more ideas up my candy maker's sleeve for the holidays!
But for now, let's head out to the patch and pick some pumpkins!
I'm using Ghirardelli white chocolate, but if you have vanilla almond bark on hand it will work just fine. I also used some orange coloring, Twizzlers and Ruffles chips. Not pictured are the candy eyes and parchment paper.
Rrrruffles have rrridges--lol..i grew up in the 70s--meaning they're sturdy enough to handle being dipped in chocolate without breaking.
To create the pumpkin stems, I snipped off small pieces and cut them in half lengthwise.
Melt the white chocolate, and stir in a small dollop of color to get that nice orange shade of pumpkin. Now dip your chips to coat completely, place on parchment paper and attach a Twizzlers candy stem.
I love that they are all different shapes and sizes like real pumpkins! I think the smaller ones are the cutest!
