Step 1
Place ¾ cup of the chocolate in the top pan of a double boiler. If you don't have a double boiler, place a heat-safe bowl over a saucepan of simmering water.

Step 2
Heat the chocolate, stirring frequently, until it melts.

Step 3
Continue to heat until the chocolate reaches 110 degrees Fahrenheit as measured on a candy thermometer.

Step 4
Remove the chocolate from the heat immediately. Stir in the remaining ¼ cup of chocolate, and stir until it melts completely.

Step 5
Keep stirring and measuring the temperature until the chocolate drops to 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 6
Gently pick up a single potato chip with a pair of tongs. Dip it halfway into the melted chocolate. Place it on wax paper on the counter to dry.

Step 7
Repeat dipping the potato chips, one chip at a time. Place the chips at the far end of the wax paper, and work toward yourself so you don't drop on the drying chips.

Step 8
Let the chips cool until the chocolate is dry and solid. Refrigerate if preferred.
