Chocolate Cherry Junk Mix Behind the Curtain Dessert Challenge

 Sheryl at Lady Behind the Curtain has started a fun monthly challenge for fellow bloggers. She gives us 2 ingredients for the month and we have to create a dessert using both.   This month was Chocolate and Cherries.   For some reason while I was plotting out my recipe my mind kept going back to the leftover potato chips at my house and how my mom used to make chocolate covered Pringles for Christmas. 
Since I love sweet and salty I thought of a yummy snack that can be enjoyed after dinner.. preferably during a movie... :-)
I call it the Chocolate Cherry Junk Mix
So the recipe is simple..  there really isn't one.  Change this to your desired ingredients and amounts.

2 handfuls of crunched up ridged potato chips
1/3 cup pistachios
1/3 cup dried cherries or cran-cherries
1/4 bag semi sweet chocolate chips melted
Add dry ingredients to a bowl & drizzle chocolate over. Mix together until all ingredients have a light coating of chocolate on them.
Have fun with this and use whatever is in your pantry :-)
Oh yeah..  check out the other awesome recipes in the link.
