To Make Pepperoni Chips: Place pepperoni slices on a baking sheet. Bake at 400°F for 8-10 minutes; watch carefully. Cool on paper towels. Or place a paper towel on a microwave-safe plate; arrange pepperoni in a single layer and top with another paper towel. Microwave on HIGH 45 seconds. Let cool. For curved pepperoni chips – flip over a muffin pan and place pepperoni between the cups. Bake as directed.
