This was my first time using white chocolate in a bark recipe. My sister and I usually make peppermint bark every year for the holidays. Somehow, time just flew past us this year and that didn't happen. I decided to try to whip up some bark on my own using ingredients that I had in the house. For some reason I have an abundance of white chocolate chips. Why I think I need to purchase a package on each shopping trip is beyond me.
White Chocolate Potato Chip Bark
Lately we have been on a salty/sweet kick when it comes to treats. Since one of my ultimate favorite candy bars contains potato chips, I figured why not try adding them to the bark?
This recipe is super duper easy and only contains two ingredients. Bark candy can make a great treat for the holidays. It's really inexpensive to make, too. It's perfect to serve to guests, or add to tins or gift packages with your other homemade cookies and treats. Not only that, it's so quick and easy to make. You can whip it up in no time with little effort.
I used about one cup of crushed potato chips and I would definitely suggest using more. It could use more salty and less sweet. Mike loved it, though, so that might just be my opinion! Play with it and adjust to your personal taste.
Next time, I want to add a layer of semi-sweet chocolate chips to the bottom like we do for peppermint bark. I think that will give the candy a lot more flavor, as well. I also want to try this with crushed pretzels. It's so fun to experiment with bark recipes, so we might as well get creative.

Let us know if you have a favorite bark recipe. Give us some ideas in the comments below if you have suggestions to try. Candy bark is perfect to make for any holiday. We used a holiday background for this picture, but the bark isn't Christmas-themed at all. Make potato chip bark year round. Try it with milk chocolate — or, maybe a white chocolate and milk chocolate swirl! Oh yeah… trying that, too.
