Potato Chip Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made the legendary Potato Chip Chocolate Chip cookies this weekend. They turned out great! (Ok, I actually mixed the batter a lot, so the cookie dough itself was overmixed and the texture of the cookies is lame, but that's my fault, and has nothing to do with the potato chips.)

The cookie on the left is a little bit darker; with later cookies, I mixed a little cocoa in to see how much cocoa you need in the dough before you can perceive a chocolatey flavor. Turns out you need quite a bit.

This lead me to my next great idea: Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies with Cayenne Chille! Sounds a little crazy, but you can make great hot chocolate by adding a dash of cayenne pepper. Why shouldn't it work for cookies, too?

Update, 12/15/2005: For some reason, I'm getting a lot of search engine hits on this post right now. If you're looking for the recipe I used to make these cookies, check out this earlier post of mine. Or if you're too lazy to click through, just replace the nuts in the standard toll-house cookie recipe with the same amount of slightly crushed Ruffles. It's that easy!.

I've made them a few times since I posted this back in April, and they're really quite good!

Update 2, 12/15/2005: If you're one of the many people who found my website today, I'm curious what prompted you to search for this. Were potato chip chocolate chip cookies mentioned on a TV show? Leave a comment and let me know.

wow. those cookies with some pepper could be really good. i wonder if it's worth trying to make them vegan. homemade vegan cookies usually tend to be quite nasty.

I had a recipe for Potato chip cookies, and I can't find it. So for our family's 'cookie baking get together' I started a web search to find another one. Thanks for posting yours.

A guy friend years ago made these for a potluck. I got his recipe but it didn't sound complete. Just checking it out.
Did you ever make them with chile powder? I am thinking Chipotle Chile might be good, along with the chocolate,
