it’s no big news that salty + sweet = delicious. here’s an easy dessert/snack that is the perfect combination of the two.
adapted from minimalist baker.
makes about 50 chips, depending on size of sweet potatoes
- 2 large sweet potatoes
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or dark chocolate
- 1/8 cup soy milk (or regular milk, if you prefer)
preheat oven to 375. slice sweet potatoes into 1/4 inch rounds. in a bowl, toss with olive oil, sea salt, and cinnamon. place sweet potato chips onto baking dish in single layer. bake for 30 minutes, flipping chips half way through.
when sweet potatoes are almost done, begin to melt chocolate in a small pan on the stovetop. once chocolate becomes soft, add milk and stir. remove from heat once melted and well mixed. remove chips from oven, and let cool for a couple minutes. then dip chips halfway into chocolate, you may need to use a spoon to help cover. set on a plate to cool and for chocolate to harden.
