  6. Well at least I don’t have to worry about eating just one chip. I can HAVE a whole bar of chips if I like. These treats are awesome.

  7. I usually make these with cornflakes rather than Rice Krispies. Definitely going to try these with chips! Yum. And do try with cornflakes, it’s a nice change also.

  12. You smart rice krispies treat, you. Bravo!

  13. Oh yeah- I can see how one’s first thought would be that it was strange. But when you really think about the salty & sweet – oh I think this could be a new addiction! YUM!

  14. I love a good salty-sweet snack. Especially one with potato chips!!

    On a side note, I really have to remember everyone I “know” online, I won’t see in my everyday life. I almost waved to a woman at the children’s museum last night that looked JUST LIKE YOU! I live in Wisconsin. Thank goodness I caught myself.

  16. No way! These are the the ULTIMATE sweet and salty treat! I’m afraid to make these because I’d eat them all by myself :0)

    Reply
  17. I… but… did you just… GIMME.

    One question though: did these tear the living hell out of the roof of your mouth?

    Not that I am not willing to pay that small price.

  21. I didnt have enough chips for the whole recipe so I used 1/2 rice crispy cereal and 1/2 crushed crushed ruffles mixture and it was wonderful! – Thanks so Much! Cant wait to try it with all chips. I might add some m&m’s next time too!

  28. Ruffles are great dipped in white chocolate and I have also used marshmallow cream, vanilla, butter and a little whipping cream as a fondue with ruffles!

  29. Just made these. We loved them. We’re having a raking party tomorrow, and are having them for our treat. I know everyone is going to love them. Had to make two batches to have enough.

  30. WOW I am diffidently making these tonight.

    Reply
  31. Holy hell. I need these now.

    Reply
  32. These look amazingly like I need to go buy a bag of chips! However, could you make a clarification, please? Your recipe says:

    6 cups crushed original ruffles chips, crushed {1 8-oz. bag}

    Are we crushing then measuring 6 cups or measuring then crushing? Since you have crushed in twice it’s a bit confusing, though I’m assuming you mean 6 cups crushed?

    Reply
    • The 8-oz. bag of chips after crushed turns out to be 6 cups of chips.
