Chocolate Covered Potato Chips – Feingold Stage 1

1 cup of chocolate chips (Ghiradelli or Enjoy Life for dairy free)
1 TB of shortening (Spectrum or we  use Tropical Traditions Palm Oil shortening – order online)

Combine the above ingredients in a sauce pan.  Heat just until melted.  Let cool slightly. Dip the chips in the chocolate.  We use Ruffles, or you could use Lay’s. I like the crunchiness of the Ruffles better.  The Lay’s also break easily when dipping. (Ruffles and Lay’s used to be approved but they stopped filling out forms.)

Place on a plate or baking sheet that has been covered with parchment or wax paper. We use unbleached parchment paper from Whole Foods or order online. 

Place in fridge to cool and set.  Store any leftovers in the refrigerator. These will melt if left out at room temp.

These taste like a Nestle Crunch bar but better.

  1. Frito Lay will no longer fill out forms but both Ruffles and Lays used to be approved. They have not changed ingredients on the labels and we do not react to them so we continue to use them on occasion.

  2. Thank you, love your blog. Just preparing to start the diet for my kids, hopefully can see the results. I am starting with your three day trial program. We are asian indian vegetarians so things are little harder as cooking is different. Can we use regular rice and lentils that we get from indian store for this diet?


  3. No problem. 🙂 I'm not familiar with tamarind but you can download the Blue Book from Feingold's web site for free and it will tell you what is stage one and stage two. You could also try to ask on the Feingold Association Facebook page. Maybe someone on there knows. Here's the link for the Blue Book. Scroll down the page. It's on the top right.
