Melt butter in a microwave safe mixing bowl. Add granulated sugar, brown sugar, and salt to melted butter and whisk together.
Add 1 egg, 1 egg yolk, and vanilla to your butter/sugar paste. Beat together using a stand mixer or hand mixer on medium speed for about 3-5 minutes.
Sift flour and baking soda together, then add to mixing bowl with you batter. Fold dry ingredients into wet ingredients until well incorporated.
Add 1/2 cup crushed potato chips and 1 cup chocolate chips (rough chopped so they are in big chunks) to your mixing bowl and fold until evenly distributed.
Chill dough for about 20 minutes.
While dough is chilling, preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium mixing bowl, crush 1 1/2 cups potato chips.
Form into balls about 1 teaspoon batter per. Drop each ball into mixing bowl of chips and gently roll around until coated in potato chips.
Place each cookie ball on a prepared baking sheet (we love reusable non-stick silicon baking mats), leaving about 1 1/1 inch of space between each ball. Leave cookie dough in balls; do not press or flatten.
Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350°F (time depends on whether you enjoy cookies that are soft-baked or on the crispy side).
