Yummy Mummy Chocolate Covered Potato Chips

Me and my mummified chocolate covered chips are over here celebrating 8 years of creating fun treats at Sugartown Sweets! 

10.31.2011 marks our official birthday!! 😊

Come on in and join us!
We'll have a yummy ol' time!
To create our mummies, we'll need the following:
Ruffles chips, 2 1/5  cups white chocolate wafers  (about 12-13 oz), candy eyes, purple icing color, and bug sprinkles.
 This will make approximately 20 to 25 chips.
Melt 1 1/2 cups white chocolate wafers over very low heat. Remove from and stir in a good sized dollop of purple color mixing well.
Dip chips to coat completely in chocolate.
Place candy eyes on your sweet new friends! 
 Melt 1 cup white chocolate wafers and use a spoon to drizzle on chips. Next place bug sprinkles and let sit till candy hardens.
 Aren't they adorable?!

Salty and sweet always gets my vote!
Hope you enjoyed today's post and I really do appreciate you stopping by!

It's been 8 fun years and I'm excited to share some new sweet treats with you for the upcoming Thanksgiving & Christmas holiday season!

Potato Chip Pumpkin Patch

Hello October and Welcome to my Pumpkin Patch!

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!
Now you can add the candy eyes.

"Hey! Somebody turned the lights on!"
Now you can sit back and admire your new pumpkin patch..look at all the friends you've made!
