Best Chocolate Potato Chips: Brummer's Homemade Chocolates and Candies

They say you can't eat just one potato chip. Well, try eating just one chocolate-covered potato chip. This test of willpower is brought to you by Brummer's Chocolates in Vermilion. The small waterside shop smells of freshly baked chocolate and just-out-of-the-oven cakes. Their fruits, pretzels, and candies are each individually dipped in vats of bubbling dark chocolate and laid out on large display trays. But the third-generation candy-maker's best collision of sweet and salty, crunchy and sweet is its chocolate-covered chips. The chips are crisp and lightly salted, and smothered in freshly melted chocolate. And amazingly, they're not greasy. Our suggestion: Buy them by the pound.
