Chocolate Dipped Potato Chips

Chocolate Dipped Potato Chips

Our area is always so behind on the snowy weather. haha. I saw photos on Facebook this year of people getting tons of snow before Thanksgiving and do you know that today (like 6 days before Christmas) is the first time I've seen a snowflake this "winter".

I know that winter doesn't technically start until tomorrow but come on! ;) Just a few more snowflakes....please! All morning it's been faintly snowing and you don't even really notice it unless you're staring out of the window looking for it.

Like I told Big Bear, "I just want enough snow to cover the ground in a pretty little white blanket and then it can stop if it needs too, but I just want to see a little snow." That's not too much to ask for... right? haha

Around here people either LOVE snow or HATE it. I love it as long as it doesn't make the road dangerous. Once it starts freezing the roads and turning them into sheets of ice I'm over it.

I'm pretty sure that I could get a little more into the "Christmas Spirit" if I had a bit of snow! I'm sure of it!

Chocolate Dipped Potato Chips


I've got the Christmas music up today and I'm whipping up a few Christmas treats in the kitchen so all I need is a magical snowfall outside of the kitchen window and I'd be set. Oh, but wait.... it can't snow too much! I have an Ugly Sweater Party to go to tonight! So... yeah...that's a southerner for ya!

Snow, Snow, Snow... but don't let it snow too much because I've got stuff to do and places to go haha.

But you're not here for snow. You're here for Chocolate Dipped Potato Chips!

Grab a handful, you're gonna love them!

I had my first Chocolate Dipped Potato Chip from ChocolatePaper in Roanoke, VA a few years ago and I'll admit that at first I wasn't excited about the thought of eating a Chocolate Dipped Potato Chip.

I thought to myself, "man, that's a weird food to dip into chocolate" but after a little persuading, I gave it a try and wow, it was actually good. Sweet from the chocolate and a little salty from the potato chip...it was indeed a pretty good combination!

Chocolate Dipped Potato Chips


Need a sweet treat for a Christmas Party that you're going to this weekend? These will hardly take anytime to make!

Want to give them a try? You only need 2 ingredients (3 if you add sprinkles) for these Chocolate Dipped Potato Chips! You'll need Chocolate Melting Wafers (or Chocolate QuickCoat Melting Chocolate) and potato chips! Throw some festive sprinkles on them before they dry and BOOM, the easiest Christmas treat ever! ;)

Ingredients 

Chocolate Melting Wafers (or Chocolate QuickCoat Melting Chocolate)
Ridged Potato Chips (I think that these work the best!)
Sprinkles (optional) 

Directions 

Line a baking sheet (or flat surface) with wax or parchment paper.

Melt Chocolate according to package directions. I normally pour my chocolate into a bowl and melt it in the microwave in 30 seconds burst, stirring between each heating session until melted.

Dip each potato into melted chocolate and then lay them on the wax paper to cool.

Sprinkle with sprinkles before the chocolate hardens.

To quicken the chocolate hardening process, stick the chocolate dipped potato chips into the fridge for about 10 minutes.

Chocolate Chip Holiday Nog Cannolis - Chocolate Chip Eggnog Cannolis #plantprotein


Cannolis were not something I ever thought I would attempt at home. They were a special treat and I thought that they would be way too difficult to make. I put off making them for years but bought one every chance I got!

Big Bear loves them, my dad loves them and I love them (although mine HAVE to have mini chocolate chips in them or they're not worthy haha).


I remember my dad ordering them a lot when we would go out to eat at Italian restaurants when I was little, they were pretty much always a guaranteed dessert for him if they were on the menu.



When we lived at Camp Lejeune, I use to stock up on them because our Commissary (grocery store) on base sold them for like .25 cents a piece. I would come home with a whole box for BigBear anytime I went to the store.

When we moved back to VA I had a hard time finding them. I've found 2, maybe 3 restaurants here that serve them and they're going to cost me about $3-$4 PER CANNOLI depending on where I go. Yikes.

Let's just say that the days of surprising BigBear with tons of cannolis is long gone.... or so I thought!

When I was down in NC the other day at my sister's new store (she's the Customer Service Manager now for a nice grocery store in Chapel Hill) I noticed that their bakery had cannolis for sale!

Being the awesome wife that I am, I scooped up a box for Big Bear and took them home to him.

Once I was home and BigBear was enjoying his mini Cannolis, I again thought to myself, "Self, you really should make these at home, I bet you could."

And then I remembered something! When I was in Savannah, GA a month or so ago I had bought a set of metal Cannoli tubes! You know, the ones you wrap the dough around when you fry them!

HOLY MOLY! I can make them now!


So  that's what I did. I finally jumped into the kitchen and with Big Bear's help (hey they're so much easier to make if you have help!) we cranked out some holiday themed Chocolate Chip Eggnog Cannolis!



Now let's talk about the making of these cannolis for a bit. I'm not going to lie to you and be all like "OMG these are so easy to make and are super simple and quick!" Because I don't want to lie to you. That wouldn't be very nice now would it.

Now are these Chocolate Chip Eggnog Cannolis worth it? Totally! But they're gonna take a little work and patience.

Here are some helpful tips:

  • Don't get the oil too hot! You'll burn them before they're ready to come out! 
  • Try to only fry one or two at a time. If you throw too many in there the temperature will drop and they might bump into each other and pop open!
  • Make the dough thin! If you make it too thick, they'll pop open while you're frying them and you'll be sad. No one can stuff a flat pancake with cannoli filling.  
  • Make sure to seal the edges really well or they will pop open. 
  • Don't throw them into the hot oil....because you guessed it... they'll pop open. haha
  • Let them cool completely before filling them or your gonna melt your filling. 



Hope you love them!

About 24                                                             (Click to Print)
Ingredients 

For Shells:
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons softened butter
2 eggs yolks
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3.5 oz Marsala cooking wine
Canola Oil for Frying
Cannoli Tubes (Metal Tubes to wrap dough around while frying)

For Filling:

1 cup of ricotta
3 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup Silk Holiday Nog
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips


Directions 

In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown suagr salt, soft butter, egg yolks and cinnamon.

Using a pastry blender (or a fork) cut the butter and egg yolks into the dry ingredients until the mixture reaches the consistency of crumbs about the size of green peas.

Stir in the marsala cooking wine. Stir well to combine.

Next, use your hands to press all of the mixture into dough.

Let sit, uncovered for 30 minutes.

Heat oil to 340F.

Lightly flour your working surface and roll dough out until it's paper thin. (After trying a few different thicknesses of dough, the paper thin ones did best!)

Using a round cookie cutter (or glass about 5 inches in diameter) cut circles of dough out.

Wrap a circle of dough around one of the metal cannoli tubes and seal edges. Make sure to seal the edges good or they will pop open when frying! Also if they are too thick they will pop open too!

 Fry in hot oil for 2-3 minutes or until brown and crispy! Carefully remove from oil and place on a paper towel lined plate to cool. We had best results with frying 1-2 at a time.

The the stand of a mixer, combine: ricotta, powdered sugar and holiday nog. Mix well. If too thick add a little more holiday nog, if too thin add more powdered sugar.

Mix in mini chocolate chips.

Pipe thick filling mixture into both sides of cooled cannoli shells. Serve Immediately.

Shells can be made ahead of time and filling placed into fridge in a container until ready to serve.

Chocolate Christmas Popcorn

Chocolate Christmas Popcorn

I'm sure that almost everyone has that Christmas spirit by now! Right? Well, normally I would say, YES! But this year, I feel like I am among one of those with little holiday spirit this year. We had a rough start to December and it kind of crushed our Red, White and Green Christmas dreams.

A week ago yesterday, we said goodbye to BigBear's Grandma. She became a beautiful angel and it left a huge hole in our family. Grandma Mary was an amazing woman and she was loved by so many!

Between her being in the hospital at the beginning of December and her passing last week, we haven't really been in the mood for too much Christmas cheer.

Chocolate Christmas Popcorn

I just now took the time to put up a little Christmas tree. We decided to go without our normal live tree and pulled this little 3-foot, pre-light one from the basement so that we'd have some type of tree in the house for Christmas.

I almost didn't want to put one up but Grandma Mary would have probably been disappointed in us if we had let our sadness get in the way of something that brought us joy (like our Christmas tree each year). I know she didn't want us to be sad, so we're trying to smile. :)

Big Bear's Wife - Christmas Tree

Which is another reason to share this Chocolate Christmas Popcorn. It's one of the few Christmas related things I've made this year. It's one of the few Christmas related things that's made me happy. I think that means that it's totally worth sharing.

Chocolate Christmas Popcorn

I just can't help but to smile at that little gingerbread man as he sits with that bucket of homemade Chocolate Christmas Popcorn! So I did want to take a moment to speak about the sadness that's been going on around here but I want to try to bring a little bit of Christmas Joy to the blog and to our lives!

Chocolate Christmas Popcorn


Since we're on the subject of Christmas, did you ask for anything awesome? I can't think of a single thing I want for Christmas this year other than "the ability to Travel", which is a little difficult to wrap with a bow. haha.

I can't think of any material object that I just HAVE to have. That's a little odd to me because I can always think of something awesome, but this year... I've got nothing.

Throughout the year I sent BigBear some idea of things I'd like to have, like the Flavor Bible and some Pandora Charms but I don't have like a "Wish List" this year.

Chocolate Christmas Popcorn

Big Bear hasn't been very helpful with telling me what he wants for Christmas either! Men are so hard to buy for! I mean what do you get for your husband? I feel like I've out grown the days of getting your guy "boxers and cologne".  I feel like when I was growing up and dating that the only acceptable gift for your boyfriend was a pair of boxers and a bottle of cologne. I have no idea where that idea came from. Probably Teen Magazine. haha

Chocolate Christmas Popcorn


Any ideas for me?

I also need some ideas for my brother..... and I'm TOTALLY NOT going to get him boxers and cologne. haha.

Oh and I need ideas for my dad...and father in law.... Ahhhhh see! It's men! Men are hard to buy for!

Chocolate Christmas Popcorn

I can buy presents for women all day long but put me in a store to do Christmas shopping for a man and I've got nothing. Nada.....no ideas at all.

Chocolate Christmas Popcorn

I suppose I could just package up a ton of this Chocolate Christmas Popcorn, tie on a pretty bow and be done with it all. haha. I think they would all probably like this. ;) What do you think? haha

Chocolate Christmas Popcorn - Pail

But seriously, this Chocolate Christmas Popcorn makes a wonderful gift! I found these little Christmas pails at Hobby Lobby but I've also seen them in the Dollar Section at Target!

I filled the tins with a heaping amount of Chocolate Christmas Popcorn, wrapped the entire pail in a cellophane bag and tied it closed with a Christmas Ribbon!

Chocolate Christmas Popcorn - Homemade Gift Idea

Add a "Merry Christmas" tag and you've got the perfect homemade gift!

Now, that's MY kind of present!

Frozen Popcorn - Chocolate Popcorn

Frozen Popcorn - Chocolate Popcorn

"Do you want to build a snowman?" -- Come on, if you don't know about Frozen, you've been living under a rock haha. Almost everyone, even if they haven't seen the movie, knows about Frozen. It's literally everywhere.

We love that movie and our niece and god-daughters love it as well! Our niece's birthday this year was "Frozen" themed and there have been quite a few "Frozen" Christmas gift purchases this year. I've even caught my husband watching Frozen a few times haha :)

Frozen Popcorn - Chocolate Popcorn

Although Frozen hit the world like a storm, I haven't really put anything on the blog about it...well until today that is!



Thursday I went down to Raleigh, NC to see Frozen on Ice with my niece and sister. Not only was I excited to see how Savannah would feel about Frozen on Ice, I hadn't seen Disney on Ice in a really long time so I was super excited to see it again with the new Frozen theme!




I thought that this would be the perfect time to add a little bit of the "Frozen" magic to the blog!

Bagged Frozen Popcorn - Chocolate Popcorn

Frozen on Ice was so super cute and I just loved it! I even packed up a few cute little bags of this Frozen Chocolate Popcorn for my niece and sister. :)

Frozen Popcorn - Chocolate Popcorn


I was a little worried that the popcorn might not look "Frozen" enough, but as soon as my niece saw the bags she said, "Oooo it's Olaf Popcorn"!! That pretty much stopped any concern that I had. haha.

Frozen Popcorn - Chocolate Popcorn



You can pretty much put anything that you want into this Frozen popcorn, but here is what I used:

Frozen Popcorn - Chocolate Popcorn



Blue Sprinkles/Snowflake Sprinkles --  Elsa Snowflakes
White and Blue Candy Pearls - Snow Queen Pearls
Orange Sprinkles - Olaf Noses
Mini Chocolate Chips - Olaf Eyes and Buttons

Frozen Popcorn - Chocolate Popcorn


Pretty much every little girl I know is Frozen Obsessed so I have a feeling that you probably know a little Princess (or Snow Queen) that would adore some "Olaf Popcorn" too!

Frozen Popcorn - Chocolate Popcorn

So, are you a Frozen Fan? Is Frozen invading your Christmas this year? Who's your favorite character? I'm pretty sure it's a toss us between Olaf and Anna for me!! hahaha.

Iowa CornQuest 2014 - Des Moines, Iowa



I should have written about this a while ago. I've set down countless times to start writing about my recent trip to Iowa and something's always happened that caused me to have to put it on hold. Well not today! After this week, I'm not putting it off for another moment. :)

I have had so many opportunities sent my way thanks to my blog and back in October, the Iowa Corn Growers Association invited myself and nine other bloggers to experience CornQuest 2014!


Now what happened during CornQuest 2014?

I'm so glad that you asked!

It consisted of 3 days of non-stop fun! We toured farms, raced around the Iowa Speedway, had dinner at Meredith Corporation and even got to tour the Better Homes and Gardens Test Kitchens!



To start our trip, we were all flown into Des Moines, Iowa and after a brief moment to breath and change clothes, we were whisked away in a limo bus to Meredith Corporation for dinner with some of the Iowa Common Ground Bloggers!


I never thought I'd ever see the inside of the Better Homes and Garden's test kitchens, much less have an Iowa Pork inspired dinner there! Look at all of those Better Homes and Garden cookbooks! I just wish that I could flip through all of those pages!


The next day we started bright and early and headed out to the Kenney Farm!



Mark and Julie showed us around the farm and spent quite a bit of time talking to us and answering all types of questions! It was amazing to see the type of love and passion they had for their farm. They talked about the technology that goes into the corn and how the success of their corn/crops is based on huge amounts of hard work and the traits/technology that goes into those corn seeds.

Down here on the Virginia/North Carolina line our major crop is tobacco. I mean if someone has lots and lots of farm land here, they mainly grow tobacco. We have corn fields, but they are normally small and on personal farms. So it was so neat to visit an area where the major crop was corn! Rows and rows and rows of corn stretched out as far as you could see, corn that is sold in huge, huge quantities.


It was also really great to be able to listen to Mark and Julie because they love their farm. Farming isn't just a job for them, it's their way of life. It's what their parents did and they hope it's what their children will do. It's everything for them. Mark said, "We're always farming and when we're not farming, we're thinking about farming." They care about their crops and land. These farmers truly care about they're crop is grown and how it's handled.

Mark said that their farm is split - GMO corn and non-GMO corn and almost all of the corn, except for maybe 5 or 6 rows for personal use, that Mark and Julie grown is field corn. Now I am going to just go ahead and tell you, I didn't really know that there was a difference in corn. I thought corn was corn. I remember growing up and seeing the corn on display around Thanksgiving and the corn in my dad's squirrel feeders and thinking "How the heck did they get that corn to dry out and get hard."

*Face Palm* I now know that it's grown like that! I feel like I should have already known that but hey, what can I say.


Sweet Corn (the kind we are use to eating) is pretty much only used for canned corn and corn on the cob. That's the corn I'm use to thinking about. If someone says corn, my mind goes straight to corn on the cob. But it turns out that corn is in almost everything! I never really thought about that before, but our diets consist of A LOT of corn.




Here are some things that have corn in them that you may not have thought of:

  • Soda
  • Ketchup
  • Pudding
  • Yogurt
  • Mayonnaise
  • Peanut Butter 
  • and Chewing Gum. 

Not only is it in food but it's used to make a lot of things too.

Corn is used to make things like:

  • Oil
  • Make-up
  • Windex
  • toothpaste
  • matches
  • plastic
  • diapers
  • tires
  • paper
  • paint
  • chalk
  • crayons 
  • and fireworks

The Kenney's take pride in their farm and even though farm land is expensive (with some acres selling for around $10,000), the Kenney's have returned almost  30 acres back to natural grasses. By doing that, these acres on their farm will replenish the soil, provide a good habitat for animals and these natural acres will provide a buffer strip for the farms and helps with erosion.

They don't have to do that. They don't have to give up that much farmland, but they choose to do so and I love that!

Soybeans on the Kenney Farm
For lunch we headed over to Bill Couser's farm. Our lunch spot was inside of a beautiful barn on his farm that was build totally from items/buildings reclaimed from his farm.

We had a fantastic lunch and during lunch we got to sit down with Ruth MacDonald, PhD, RD who is a professor and the Chair of the Food Science and Human Nutrition Department at Iowa State University.

She provided a ton of information and answered questions about GMOs. If you'd like to check out some information and get some answers to a few GMO questions, here is a link to a Q&A session with Ruth MacDonald. I learned a tons, but I'll admit that I'm still just as confused on GMOs as I was when I got there (maybe even a little bit more now that I've learned even more information) haha.


After lunch we were totally just racing round...literally. haha. We jetted off to the Iowa Speedway and spent a little bit of time on the track in some ethanol-fueled race cars (ok, ok, they were pace-cars but they were still awesome). What did the speedway have to do with the corn tour? You know... ethanol comes from corn! haha It was too awesome! 


My husband and my brother were total jealous! We flew around that race track and while I don't know exactly how fast we went, I know it was a bit above 100mph, because we were hitting 80 mph as we were coming off of pit road and we went even faster once we were on the track. haha.


For Dinner we went over tho the Raccoon River Nature Lodge (yes, I did see a Raccoon, but he was stuffed and hanging out on a pole....but he was wearing a bow-tie. hee hee ;).

We enjoyed a lovely dinner sponsored by Iowa Beef and met with Nancy Degner as we learned a bit about the Iowa Beef Industry Council and talked about beef in general! A conversation that my BigBear would have loved, he could live off of beef haha.



On our last day in Iowa, we headed back over to Meredith Corporation for a special tour! We went behind the scenes and walked through the Better Homes and Garden's test kitchens (where they were actually cooking and testing some recipes), took a sneak peak at the Better Homes and Garden's prop rooms and photography studios. I could live in their prop room!


We ended our Iowa CornQuest with a huge "corny" lunch made by all of the bloggers in attendance! It was so neat and I absolutely loved that Iowa Corn put in all of these special touches into our trip.

They had printed a little cookbook for us and it had a corn themed recipe from each of our blogs in it! A corn recipe that were were now going to be making for lunch! 10 Super Talented Food Bloggers in a kitchen, making lunch... I'm so sorry that you were not there because it was amazing.


My creamy corn chowder was my contribution to lunch. It's one of my favorites and I heard some great things from the other bloggers while they were tasting it.

That right there put a ton of a panic into my heart haha. Having a group of amazing cooks tasting your recipe (and liking it) was a little nerve wracking. haha. I won't lie, I was ridiculously nervous. But it turned out fabulous (as it always does) and my fears were put to rest.


So what all did we have?

Southwest Farro Salad with Corn & Tomatoes made by The Law Student's Wife
Salad with Black Beans & Edamame made by Lemons for LuLu
Grilled Corn, Tomato & Mozzarella Salad  made by Garnish with Lemon
Fresh Corn Cakes with Cherry Salsa made by The Vintage Mixer
Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Farro Bake made by The Lemon Bowl
Blue Cheese Buckwheat Cornbread Muffins from Girl Versus Dough
Cinnamon Sugar Swirl Cupcakes from Life, Love and Sugar
Deep Fried Cookie Dough from Beyond Frosting
Creamy Corn Chowder  from Big Bear's Wife (ME!)


Thank you so much to everyone that put together our trip! I loved it all!



This trip was paid for by Iowa Corn but all opinions are 100% mine. :)
