How to Make (full instructions in recipe card)

  • First,  decide how many different colors/flavors of cookies you want to make. Then, take the gelatin powder of those colors and place the powder in individual bowls, separating by color.
  • Next, make your dough.
  • Once your dough is made, seperate the dough into sections. The amount of sections will depend on how many colors you are making.
  • Take each section and add about a tablespoon (or two) into the dough.  Work the dough gently until the powder is fully mixed in.  
  • Once the dough is dyed, pinch off a piece of dough and roll it into a ball.  Roll that ball into the matching gelatin powder, to coat.
  • Next, place the ball of dough onto the prepared baking sheet.  Gently, flatten the ball of dough.
  • Continue with remaining dough, then, bake.

Do I Have to Use "Jell-O" gelatin?

No, this will work with any brand or flavor.  You will need about 16 tablespoons of the powder for the entire batch of cookies.  How much of each flavor, will depend on you.


Keep any leftover cookies in a sealed container. No need to refrigerate. They are best eaten within a week. 

Potato Chip Cookies

Potato Chip Cookies- The best of both worlds...sweet and salty! Delicious cookies loaded with chocolate chips and crunchy potato chips.  They are crunchy on the edges and chewy in the middle. YUM!

Potato Chip Cookies- Recipes My Mom Gave Me

My mom's potato chip cookie recipe never included chocolate chips. She would top them off with a maraschino cherry.  They were yummy, but,  honestly, I never ate the cherry.  I would pull it off and simply eat the cookie. 

When I started making these for my own family, I added the chocolate chips instead.  They are a perfect combination of sweet and salty. 👌

Ingredients Needed

  • Flour
  • Sugar (both white and brown)
  • Egg
  • Vanilla
  • Butter
  • Milk
  • Potato chips
  • Chocolate chips

Recipe Notes


Make sure it's softened! This is so important for the texture of your cookies. You will need 2 whole sticks for these!

Potato Chips

I use a standard, regular potato chip for these. Go with your favorite brand or salt level.  Be sure they are finely crushed. 


Keep any leftover cookies in a covered container. Don't worry about refrigerating them, unless it's really hot in your area. 

Can I Freeze These?

Yep.  Bake according to the recipes, then, let them cool completely.  Store them in a covered, freezer safe container /storage bag. They will be good for several months.
