Don’t ask me to explain these Potato Chip Fudge Cupcakes. I’m not pregnant. I’m not high. I just felt like I needed comfort food all in one bite. Cupcakes and potato chips. YASSS. Truth is, one day we were expecting guests I wanted to make something memorable. Something fabulous to deflect that I forgot to make the potato salad, ironically enough. I’m not the best cupcake
Truth is, one day we were expecting guests I wanted to make something memorable. Cupcakes are always a win. And I needed them to be fabulous to deflect that I forgot to make the potato salad, ironically enough. I’m not the best cupcake froster/decorator, so I had to go with a creative taste combo. Believe it or not, but chocolate fudge and potato chips are pretty dang tasty together!
You can do this three ways:
- Buy store cupcakes and add your own chips.
- Use a cake mix and a tub of frosting (that’s what I did here)
- Bake and make everything from scratch (what I’ll do next time).
Bake your cupcakes and let them cool. If you want decorative frosting, use a plastic bag and icing tip. It will give the cupcakes more volume!
Next, the chips. I wouldn’t go too crazy with these. You can use Lay’s or Ruffles. Although I do think jalapeño chips might be fun! Put a couple handfuls in a sealed bag and crumble them. I just used my hands, but you could also set the bag on a table and use a glass to smash the pieces.
Now sprinkle a little bit on top of each cupcake!
OMG, these are sooo tasty! Sweet and sour, creamy and crunchy. This cupcake will definitely wake up your taste buds!
Don’t you just want to bite into it? What do you think? What is your favorite kind of cupcake?
