one double boiler - fill bottom with water
in top of double boiler place one 12 ounce bag of whatever chocolate chips you like - my fave is milk chocolate, but you may use butterscotch, semi-sweet or peanut butter chips if choose.
add one-quarter stick of cooking paraffin (wax) and bring water to a slow boil, stirring paraffin and chips until melted and well blended.
remove from heat and begin dipping ridged potato chips halfway into the mixture, and place onto waxed paper to cool and set.
if you'd like to cover the entire potato you must use a set of tongs so as not to burn your "eatin' fingers".
once cooled and set, place into an airtight container, hide it from your family and snack away when nobody's looking!
the reason i call these "P.M.S. CHIPS" is due to the fact that at least once a month we women NEED a sweet yet salty chocolate snack to bring us to our senses. this one has done the trick for me and some others a time or 756,000.
it will cost you approximately $6.00 to make a two to three month supply OR you may go to a candy store where you'll pay upwards of $18.00 a pound.
