Chipotle Chip Toffee


  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 2 hours 55 minutes

about 1 pound


1 cup butter (no substitutes)

1-1/4 cups sugar

2 tablespoons Karo® Light Corn Syrup

2 tablespoons water

1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Chipotle Chile Powder

2 teaspoons Spice Islands® Pure Vanilla Extract

5 cups kettle cooked potato chips, divided

6 ounces (1 cup) dark chocolate chips


Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.

Place butter, sugar, corn syrup and water in a heavy 2 to 3-quart saucepan.  Heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil. Insert candy thermometer. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue to boil until toffee reaches 300°F. 

Remove from heat; stir in chipotle and vanilla extract.  Add 4 cups of potatoes, stirring to coat.  Spread mixture to 10 x 14-inch on a lightly greased baking sheet.  Lightly press remaining chips on top of the toffee.  Let cool at least 30 minutes.

Melt the chocolate in the microwave at 60% power for 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 minutes, stirring frequently.  Drizzle over the toffee.  Set aside for 1 to 2 hours to allow chocolate to harden.  Break into pieces.
