A few weeks ago, I was contacted by PopChips and invited to sample some of their delicious chips.
I’ve been a HUGE fan of PopChips for some time, and I was super excited about the chance to try the new flavors. PopChips also gives me an opportunity to share these tasty chips with one lucky reader… see below.
Popchips are one of my favorite alternatives to chips. They’re “popped” in a way, as opposed to fried, which make them a healthier choice. And, there are so many great flavors to choose from… I got to enjoy the Sweet Potato, Sour Cream and Onion, Barbecue, and Salt and Vinegar to name a few! So delish!! These bags also come in snack-sized bags clocking in at 100 calories, which made them perfect for snacking.
You might remember the last time I worked with PopChips, I shared a recipe for Pop Chip-Topped Taco Soup.
So, this time around, I decided to go for something a little sweeter, something I think you’ll enjoy a lot…
Chocolate Covered PopChips
1 snack-sized bag of plain Popchips
1/2 cup chocolate chips (enough for dipping)
1. Place your chocolate chips in a microwave safe glass container. Microwave for 20 seconds, and then stir.
2. Place glass back in the microwave and heat another 20 seconds. Stir once again.
3. Place glass in the microwave for another 10 seconds, and stir again. There will be a few lumps in the chocolate. Keep stirring until the chocolate is completely smooth.
4. Dip the chips in the chocolate, coating half of the chip. Place on wax paper to cool.
5. Top with sprinkles, if desired, and allow chocolate to harden. Note: I totally think you should! I mean, look how cute they look now!
6. Serve and enjoy!

Note: There was some melted chocolate leftover; however, I estimated the nutritional information based upon using all of the chocolate. I’d rather overestimate than underestimate.
Now, I mentioned there was also a GIVEAWAY underway!
I’m not the only person that is a HUGE fan of PopChips. Biggest Loser Trainer Jillian Michaels is also a huge fan! She has even posted a few recipes of her own on the PopChips blog. I wonder if she’s tried dipping them in chocolate yet…
Jillian is busy touring the country right now, speaking to crowds of men and women about how to be healthy, successful, and happy! And, I will be attending her “Maximize Your Life” show in Denver tonight! The Denver show tonight is part of her “Maximize Your Life” tour. To see find out when Jillian will be in a city near you, click here.
To celebrate Jillian’s tour and their support of people getting healthy worldwide, PopChips has offered to award one lucky NTTC reader with a ONE-MONTH SUPPLY of their tasty PopChips and a Jillian Michaels workout DVD.

Disclosure: PopChips provided me with a month’s supply of chips to snack on and experiment with; however, the comments, recipe, and opinions in this post are my own.
