Butterscotch Chocolate Cappuccino Potato Chip Cookies

As I write this post I’m thinking all things peppermint. December is already upon us and I’m going crazy thinking that this year is almost over. But onto the way these cookies came into play. Honestly….I just threw these cookies together from stuff I had in the cabinet.

These came together when I tried Lay’s new potato chip flavors. You know the competition that that have every year? Where people create out there flavors and such. Well as I tried the new Cappuccino flavor I new I couldn’t take another bite. It just wasn’t meant to be. I had been seeing cookies all over the Internet with potato chips in them so putting these chips in cookies seemed to fit perfectly.

These cookies are the perfect balance of sweet and salty with an added crunch. You can easily use regular potato chips and add in a cappuccino mix considering the Lay’s chips are all out of stock. Enjoy!
