Over medium-low heat using a double boiler, melt chocolate chips until smooth. Dip one potato chip at a time into the melted chocolate, using a small spoon to help glide the chocolate over the entire chip. It takes a bit of finesse and a little patience to thoroughly cover the chip Place chocolate-covered potato chip onto wax paper. Repeat with all chips until thoroughly covered.
