Hershey’s Chocolate-Dipped Utz Potato Chips

Serves 10–12
Prep Time Cook Time Total Time
5 min 5 min 10 min


  • 1 (12-ounce) bag Hershey’s Special Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 bag Utz Wavy Original Potato Chips
  • 1 cup finely chopped toasted almonds


  1. Fill a medium pot with 1” water and bring to simmer over medium-low heat. Once water is simmering, place heat-safe bowl on top of pot and add chocolate chips.
  2. Using a rubber spatula, slowly stir chocolate as it melts. When chocolate is fully melted, stir in coconut oil until well-incorporated. Remove chocolate from heat and allow to cool for 1 minute.
  3. Working with one full chip at a time, dip halfway into chocolate and allow excess to run off. Set on parchment-lined baking sheet and sprinkle chocolate-covered half with almonds. Repeat with remaining full-sized chips.
  4. Refrigerate chips for 10 minutes to set chocolate. Alternatively, chips can sit at room temperature for 2 hours to set.
