HOW TO MAKE HONEY BUTTER CHIPS

If anyone knows me... they know I'm absolutely obsessed with Honey Butter Chips. Honey Butter Chips were first introduced in Korea in 2014, manufactured by a Korean company in collaboration with a Japanese company. Since then, a Honey Butter craze has been happening not only in Korea but also in the States.

Some may say it's overhyped and some may love it as much as I do... but I thought I'd try to recreate it at home with 4 simple ingredients! I can't say it taste exactly like the original chips but I appreciate the freshness and home made taste it brings. You can bring this to a potluck/party, make it for your kids, or simply make it for yourself. Here we go!

YOU'LL NEED:

  • 1 bag of Lays original chips (you won't be needing the whole bag)
  • A little more than 1/2 a stick of butter (I used Land o' lakes original butter, but for a healthier option you can use a low fat option or margarine)
  • 1/2 cup of honey (have more ready to add a bit more after tasting)
  • Dried Parsley flakes

HOW TO:

1.) Heat your pan and melt the butter.

2.) Once it's all melted add all the honey in as well.

3.) Stir well together for a couple of minutes.

4.) As it bubbles, add in your chips.

5.) Mix the sauce and chips well together with a wooden spatula until you see that it is well mixed. (5-10 minutes)

  • Don't let the chips burn, so keep a close eye on them!

6.) After you take it off the stove, sprinkle some parsley flakes and VOILA you are done!

See how easy that was! You can really taste the honey in each bite! Now, if you prefer a bit more of the honey taste you can add more honey or if you prefer more of the butter taste you can add more butter. Since we're using all fresh ingredients, it is slightly stickier than the bagged chips... but I loved it! Hope you enjoy!

HOW TO MAKE MILK TOFU

What the milk tofu? I know what you all may be thinking... what in the world is milk tofu? Literally, it's tofu made out of milk. This is a great alternative to soybean tofu if any of you are allergic or even if you just want to try something new! This recipe requires minimal ingredients, it's super easy to make and also tastes good! It tastes a bit creamy like mozzarella cheese and goes great on top of salads! Let's get started. 

YOU'LL NEED:

  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 tsp of vinegar
  • a pinch of salt

** I used 2 cups of milk for my milk tofu and thus increasing the amount for the other ingredients accordingly!

HOW TO:

1.) Heat your pan.

2.) Pour in your milk and let it come to slow simmer/boil.

3.) Once it starts to boil, start stirring the milk in ONE DIRECTION! This is crucial that you stir in the same direction whether its clockwise or counter clock wise.

4.) Once it's boiling and you start stirring, immediately put in your vinegar and pinch of salt.

5.) Continue to stir in one direction and you'll start to see lumps and chunks (hehe).

6.) Once it starts to get a bit watery, take your pot off the stove.

7.) Have a thin cloth and a bowl/container ready for you to drain out the water and save the lumps (demonstrated below).

8.) Squeeze all the liquid out of the cloth and form your tofu into a ball or square.

See how easy that was? Now, if you do not have a cloth you can also use a strainer (make sure the holes are small enough to catch the lumps) to drain the liquid out. You can just shape your tofu with a spoon or with your hands once you're done draining it. 

You can also crumble it on top of some salad, slice it on top, or even just eat it with some fruits. It tastes so yummy! 

I hope you all enjoyed and make sure to give this recipe a try... I mean why not, right?!
