Oh this sounds SO good!!! Another great reason to keep a dehydrator on my wish list! Can an oven be used instead?? What temperature?

Hi Lynn!

Yes, the first time I made these I used a wax paper covered cookie sheet, but it was difficult to get the chips off of the wax paper. I turned the oven to 170 degrees and propped open the oven door with a wooden spoon. This technique works great if you are dehydrating in your oven. Good luck!
