Step 1

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or your toaster oven to 300 F.

Step 2

Spread the stale chips in a single layer on a cookie sheet or piece of aluminum foil, maintaining space between each chip.

Step 3

Put the chips into the preheated oven on the center rack so the heat can remove the moisture that makes the chips soft and stale. Sample a chip after 3 minutes to check for the desired level of crunch. Keep baking for an additional 1 to 2 minutes if necessary.
