Recipe Notes
  •  I didn’t have any cookie sheets I could use so I ended up making cookie bars in an 8×8 pan instead
  • We used 50% less sodium Lays, which I think were a bad idea.  Alex said, “it’s like chewing on toenails” as they got soggy and chewy.
  • If I was to make these again, I’d use a thicker crispier potato chip with more salt.
