Makes 3 (2-cup) servings


  • 1 (5-ounce) bag plain potato chips
  • 2 (hand-roll-size) nori sheets
  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • 2 Tbsp. black sesame seeds
  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • ½ tsp. chipotle powder


    Active time: 15 minutes
    Total time: 30 minutes

    Preheat oven to 350°. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

    Put potato chips in a large bowl. Transfer 2 cups of chips into a large resealable plastic bag. Crumble nori sheets into bite-size pieces and add to bag. Add cashews and sesame seeds. Remove air from bag and seal. Using the bottom of a small pot, lightly crush chip mixture in bag, then add to bowl of whole potato chips.

    In a small pot, melt butter over medium heat until brown, swirling occasionally, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat, add honey and mix well.

    Drizzle brown butter and honey mixture into potato chip bowl and combine well. Sprinkle with salt and chipotle powder. Spread on prepared baking sheet and bake until lightly golden, 5 to 8 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes before serving. Store in an air-tight container at room temperature up to 2 weeks.
