    I'm trying make some crisps but when they've cooled they don't have any crunch to them and biting into what resembles a normal crisps gone off. Do I need to microwave for longer maybe? How long to cool on the paper? Any suggestions welcome...

    Was on CD last year, lost 35lbs. I need to lose another 21 but haven't decided which diet to use yet
    Are you maybe making them a bit too thick? Or as you say, you might need to zap them in the microwave for a little bit longer. The crisps and muffins are usually trial and error, I could never get mine to turn out the same each time but I still managed to eat them lol! :D

    yeah, I would say put then in the microwave a little longer - just keep checking them as you dont want them to burn!

    Please do not make crisps or muffins from the packs. It depletes the nutritional value and puts you below the safety level.
