The results might look like some kind of fancy sugary confection, but this detailed Instructable shows you how to make a see-through snack that tastes exactly like potato chips. Minus the fat, greasy fingers, and guilt.
The recipe does call for potatoes, but they're actually used to create a flavored stock along with potato starch and gelatine. Just make sure you can dedicate quite a bit of time to the process which includes baking the chips for 8 to 10 hours before the gelatine chips are fried. But the results are remarkably impressive, and supposedly taste exactly like the real thing. If you're looking for a unique treat for your Fourth of July BBQ, you've just found it.
