Oh Blonides how I love thee. So much better than brownies. I mean really? How can you just not love them? Okay, brownies are good too.
Let me move on to potato chips. When I was a little kid I would insist on eating a chunk of chocolate and a handful of potato chips or when I was dipping chocolate covered strawberries, I would drizzle melted chocolate over the chips. Everyone thought I was nuts. And I won't lie, I kind of was. But I loved it.
Fast forward 20 years later and there are people in the world now that don't think I'm crazy.
Actually a few years ago I went to Trader Joes and found a bag of chocolate covered potato chips! So anyways this whole sweet and salty thing, it's a thing.
These blondies are sweet, salty and amazeballs. Get in MA BELLY! If you love sweet and salty recipes be sure to check out my Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce
How do you make potato chip blondies?
You could definitely make this recipe with good old melted butter, but I prefer to use browned butter. The depth of flavor is just SOOO good. To see an in-depth tutorial check out my post on How to make Brown Butter.
So start with browning some butter, then set it aside to cool for 10 minutes or so. Next, add the brown sugar.
Then one egg and a splash of vanilla extract. Make sure the egg is fully combined. Then add your flour, baking soda, and salt. Gently fold to just combine.
Once the flour streaks have just gone gently add the potato chips and chocolate chunks.
Finally, pour the batter into the prepared pan. I always line my pan with foil and spray it with Bakers Joy- a non-stick baking spray. Then bake the potato chip blondies for 23-28 minutes, always check early on, your oven is different than mine.
These potato chip blondies are a sweet and salty lovers dream. Perfect on your dessert table or for a bake sale treat.

Sweet and salty is totally a thing and I am TOTALLY obsessed with it. LOOOOOVE. It's like dipping your fries in your Wendy's frosty. It just WORKS. Like some magical flavor explosion in your mouthhole. And blondies are my absolute faaaave in all the land.
I tried making blondies for the first time two weeks ago and they were delicious, but... well, the general consensus was that they were a bit like a giant bar cookie; deliciously chewy, studded with buttery brown sugar and chocolate chunks but... unremarkable. I reckon the addition of the salty chips would be just the thing to take them to the next level. Genius! Definitely trying your version!
Yes blondies are like a giant cookie bar- maybe that's why I love them so much! 🙂
