sweet n’ salty superbowl snacks

What are you doing this Superbowl Sunday?  I’m headed to a party with a bowl of these babies under one arm... and my baby in the other.

And if that deliciousness wasn’t enough to get you excited to watch the big game, how about this party inspiration board I created last year?

Chocolate Toffee Potato Chips

2    sticks unsalted butter, plus more for the baking sheet
5    cups thick-cut potato chips
1    cup sugar
2    teaspoons vanilla extract
2    tablespoons apple cider vinegar or white vinegar
5    ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate,    finely chopped

Line a baking sheet with foil and butter the foil. Set 1 cup potato chips aside; break the remaining 4 cups chips in half if they're large.

Combine the butter, sugar, vanilla and vinegar in a saucepan over medium-high heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is light amber and a candy thermometer registers 320 degrees F, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the 4 cups chips, then immediately pour onto the baking sheet and spread in a thin layer. Gently press the reserved 1 cup chips on top of the toffee and let cool.

Put about three-quarters of the chocolate in a microwave-safe glass bowl and microwave 30 seconds. Stir, then continue to microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring between each, until melted. Add the remaining chocolate and stir until smooth, about 4 minutes.

Drizzle the chocolate over the toffee. Set aside to harden, about 20 minutes. Break the toffee into pieces.

Oh.My. Goodness! Looks delicious!

I am staring a party feature on my blog each Fridays as I love parties and being inspired by all the fun party ideas that are out in the blog world. I was hoping it would be okay if I would be able to post some fun party ideas that you showcase from time to time on my blog with all respects being given to you?
