  • “This was a very good cookie!I enjoyed telling people hat there was a “secret ingredient” in them.lolI followed the recipe as written and the cookies were very tender (delicate).I couldn’t help but wonder what they’d be like with a little chocolate drizzled on them (before the powdered sugar went on them).Hmmm, perhaps next time!Thank you for posting this recipe!”

  • “This was so much fun to make! I made it with my 11 y/o son and he simply loved it. I was surprised to start with the cup of butter, but all the ingredients were perfect! I made strict to specs. The taste did indeed have a “pop-rocks” texture and almost impossible to identify the potato chips in the end product. Everyone who tried them was astounded when I told them the secret ingredient. LOL The cookies were not overly sweet, and the crunch was just perfect! Thank you for sharing this wonderful treat! ~Buddha”

  • “Wonderful and original recipe. My two kids, 8 and 10, loved making the cookies and my husband said they tasted like they had pop-rocks in them. These will become our new Christmas cookies!”
