Those are pretty common in New York state.

The milk chocolate and salt make a great combination.

They are easy to make at home, just be sure to use the chips with ridges and make a lot!

1. Melt milk chocolate in a double boiler over barely simmering water.

2. Dip potato chip in the melted chocolate and place on waxed paper to harden.

3. Lick fingers and return to step two.

I would think so Vit. You'd just be dipping pretzels or pretzel chips instead.
