Kettle Chips with Blue Cheese, Balsamic Reduction + a Hint of Truffle Oil

Don't forget to enter the Martha Stewart Giveaway going on now!

Are y'all ready for this?  Seriously - you need to brace yourselves for this recipe.  Not joking - this is some major amped up yumminess (my favorite word - and I don't use it lightly here.)
K - I think you are ready.  I know I wrote it all out for you in the title of this post but let me say it again....

This is a bag of Kettle Chips tossed with some truffle oil (oh yeah!) then drizzled with a delicious balsamic reduction and then topped with blue cheese crumbles.

This recipe has been sitting in my Pinterest board for quite some time, I almost made it a few times but decided it would be the perfect snack to bring to a nice summer get together we had with friend this past weekend.

This amazing recipe was created by Jennifer Cooks, this is not the first time I have made one of her recipes and they never disappoint....this bowl came home completely empty that night.

The truffle oil definitely brings the price tag up on this bowl of chips, if you know you are going to be using it for other recipes (or, like me, you were looking for an excuse to buy some) I say get it but I am certain this would taste amazing without it if you opted to forgo the oil.

recipe from Jennifer Cooks
1 (8.5 oz) bag Kettle Chips
1 cup crumbled blue cheese
1 tablespoon truffle oil
½ cup balsamic reduction
Ingredients for Balsamic Reduction
1 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon honey

Start by making the reduction, put both ingredients into a small saucepan and bring to a boil.  Reduce to low and let it simmer until it reduces to 1/2 a cup.
For the truffle oil, I just opened the bag of chips and added it to the bag and then gave it a toss so it would spread evenly.
Pour half the chips in a bowl, drizzle with half the oil and half the cheese and then repeat.

* mine is messy because after all the drizzling we noticed the reduction slowly leaking out of the bottom of our bowl.  I had to quickly dump the chips into another bowl and ended up with some messy chips - but boy are they delicious

**we doubled this recipe 

Last year at this time I made Tequila Soaked Watermelon   

Two Years ago at this time I made Shrimp and Pasta Puttanesca

  2. Awesome recipe! Definitely sounds delicious, a creative pop to a bowl of chips!
