Chocolate-dipped sweet potato chips

I recently discovered a seriously game-changing way to eat two of my favourite foods together. I’m not sure how I survived so many years without these chocolate-dipped crispy baked sweet potato chips in my life!

To be honest, I’ve had a love affair with sweet potatoes for as long as I can remember and have enjoyed experimenting with them in all sorts of ways, from adding the purée to my pancake batter to this Pumpkin Sweet Potato Soup recipe.

As much as I’m a sweet potato fan, it’s clear from my recipes that I can’t resist a chocolatey dessert, especially when it’s made with cacao and other healthy ingredients, whether it’s these Chocolate Peanut Butter Crispy Treats, these Chocolate Caramel Twix/Mars Bars or these Choc Peanut Butter Banana Caramel Squares.

So it’s no surprise that I’ve become addicted to these sweet potato chips coated in rich dark chocolate and dusted in sea salt. The two elements really are a match made in heaven, and the sweetness of the potato and the chocolate is perfectly balanced by the salt. Now that I’ve tried this combination, I don’t think I’ll ever stop making this…

Chocolate Sweet Potato Chips

Ingredients

  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup chopped dark chocolate

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 170 C.
  2. Wash the sweet potato and slice into thin rounds. On a greased baking tray, coat the sweet potato in the coconut oil, salt and cinnamon until equally covered.
  3. Place in the oven for 45 minutes, flipping halfway through to cook evenly.
  4. After 30 minutes, break the dark chocolate into small chunks and melt over a low heat on the stove or in the microwave.
  5. Remove the chips from oven and dip them halfway into the chocolate. Lay them on a lined baking tray to set (do not place in fridge). Serve fresh, or store in tupperware at room temperature once cooled.
