Balsamic Kettle Chips

Over memorial weekend, my sister and brother-in-law made this for the adults to snack on while we watched the hooligans run around the back yard.
I'm sorry, the kids in my family are just too stinkin' cute!

The steps are very easy and it's a snack that doesn't have to stay cold or hot (perfect for summertime, or basically any kind of entertaining/munching/TV watching/Pinterest snacking...)

Take kettle chips and spread evenly onto your plate.  Use whatever size you'd like to feed whatever sized crowd you have.  Sprinkle generously with blue cheese.

Take equal parts of brown sugar and balsamic vinegar, bring to a boil and let reduce for about 5-7 minutes. For my 12" plate, I had used 1/2 cup each, and had PLENTY of sauce leftover.  What was I going to do, let it go to waste?  A second plate MAY have been made for the hubs and me.  Maybe.  Don't judge.  Let cool slightly.  Drizzle over your chips and MOW DOWN.

The chips look amazing. I so want to try them.

Your kids look like they are having a blast. I have one that I have to pry out of the pool even after his lips have turned blue and is chattering his teeth.
