An Obsession with All Things Handmade and Home-Cooked

Coming to a Newsstand Near You


A new pair of months means a new VegNews, and for the March/April issue, it also means a new My Sweet Vegan column! After what felt like an inordinately long break, it’s time to break out the sugar and salt shaker, because I’m bringing the sweet and and the salty together for two easy, palate-pleasing candies.

Potato Chip Chocolate Truffles may steal the show, their intense, dark chocolate centers covered in crunchy shards of crushed potato chips, but Buttery Popcorn Brittle is not far behind in the lineup. Like kettle corn in one thick plank, it’s a new way to enjoy that classic theater snack with less muss and fuss. Both could be whipped up on a whim, and let me tell you, they make for excellent gifts… If you can bear to part with either treat.

In addition, I had the pleasure of shooting more savory delights by the lovely and talented Allison Samson. Bringing Cheesy Twice-Baked Potatoes to the party this time around, these rich spuds are not to be missed. Stuffed with creamy mashed potatoes and smothered in gooey “cheese” sauce, it may be tough to go back to plain baked potatoes after trying these tempting tubers.

Have you gotten your issue yet?  Of course, it’s packed full of other recipes, too, so there are plenty of equally attractive dishes to choose from.  What do you plan on making first?

  1. Ouhlalalala I would give anything to eat the potato so appetizing! Bravo!

  2. This potato chip truffle sounds like it would bring out the kid in me. Having both my chips and chocolate at the movies. This photo shot with that slate plate is beautiful. BAM

  3. I’ve already made one dish! The Bangkok Street Cart Noodles (though I served mine over quinoa since I had a whole bunch already made). They were delicious! I have leftovers for lunch today. Your dish and both your photos look divine in the magazine.

  4. Ahhhhh potato chocolate chip truffles, even at 8 am they look amazing :)

  5. Wow. I am smitten with your picture of those potatoes. They look over-the-top decadent and potato chip truffles? That sounds like one of those ‘why didn’t I think of that’ recipes.

  6. I’m lovin’ the look of the potato chip chocolate truffles. And VegNews is great.

  11. Love that slab! Where did you get it?

    You really capture the color beautifully on the potatoes. Warm and they have a sunset hue, which evokes thoughts of “happy hour” style food.

  12. Beautiful photos. Both candies sound out of this world!

  13. Love those potato chip truffles! I am a sucker for sweet and salty, and these look so fun to make.

  14. OMG! Totally twins again! I have been pondering whether I can make a version of my date-nut no-bake treats with potato chips. Is that what you did here? AND I was joking about trying to use popcorn in a rice krispy treat, which is almost brittleish! I love us. :P

  15. both those pictures are so amazing.. they bring out just the right food emotion.. the truffles catch the eye and then i realize those are potato chips. yesss! and all baked and filled potatoes that look this good are a must make!

  16. Can’t wait to get my issue in the mail. I love sweet and salty combos.

  17. You’re evil. Need to pick up a copy at whole foods today!

    Also…I made your chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake for a potluck at work. MAJOR hit. Among all, even the carnivores. :P

  18. Those both look equally delicious… Right now I’d go for the potatoes but then again, it might change in an hour time or so… Love it!

  19. Mmm everything looks so good! I love the sound of a potato chip truffle mm.

  20. Hannah, you have absolutely outdone yourself with your gorgeous photo of my Twice Baked Cheesy Potatoes! Honestly, you are an incredibly talented genius. What an honor you give my recipes by making them and shooting them. Beautifully done! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
