Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper. Form the ice cream into about twelve 3-inch balls and place onto the cookie sheet. Freeze for about 1 hour.

Line another cookie sheet with waxed paper and combine the remaining ingredients except for the honey or chocolate sauce. Turn the broiler to low and place under the broiler until the mixture is golden brown and crispy. Watch carefully because it will go from light brown to burnt in a few seconds. Let cool.

Press the ice cream balls into cooled potato chip mixture and freeze until hard, about 2 hours. Before serving, drizzle with honey or chocolate sauce.
