Chocolate Potato Chip Cookies

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July!!!  These Chocolate Potato Chip Cookies are delicious because they have potato chips and chocolate chips in them.  I know that sounds like a strange combo, but trust me when I say that they are amazing.  The salty from the potato chips and the sweetness from the chocolate chips really give these cookies a wonderful flavor that is sure to please everyone’s palate.  The hubby craves salty after dinner while I crave sweet so these cookies are the perfect after-dinner treat for both us.  Enjoy!
