Although this crunchy snack comes in all kinds of shapes and flavors, these glass potato chips are sure to have heads turning in awe. The space-aged snack is almost too pretty to eat, with a distinctive see-through appearance and delicate crinkled texture.

Using the power of molecular gastronomy, these glass potato chips come to life with a few scientific ingredients. Using potato stock, starch and slow-dried gel, the transparent treat comes to life after patient preparation. After creating your potato-infused gel, it must be dehydrated—delicious-sounding, right?—before the real magic begins. The fragile crisps are then deep-fried on a low temperature to obtain a golden-yellow finish. Sprinkle your edible beauties with a dash of salt and serve them to your intrigued party guests.

Cinderella may have rocked some badass glass slippers, but these crystalized crisps are a true fairytale-like masterpiece.
