Chip Aisle Bars
When game day comes along, there’s never a shortage of salty snacks like chips, popcorn, pretzels, and nuts. And while it would be easy enough to dump them in a bowl and call it good, why not turn all of these chip aisle faves into one salty and sweet Super Bowl snack?
These Chip Aisle Bars combine everything that’s good in life into one decadent, super-cinchy-to-make dessert bar.
Potato chips, corn chips, pretzels, honey roasted peanuts, and Chicago mix popcorn (that cheese and caramel corn combo), get mixed with a peanut butter, maple syrup, and marshmallow mixture, drizzled with chocolate, and topped with M&Ms.
There is nothing not to like. They’re not too sweet, not too salty, and just the right combination of oh so good and oh so bad. Best of all, there’s no baking required, you just need a couple of minutes in the microwave and some time to cool.
