We hear talk sometimes of midnight cravings. Of mysterious, bleary-eyed feasts with a bottle of milk in one hand and a chocolate bar in the other. This never happens to us.
You will not find us foraging for snacks in the wee hours of the night. And we had nothing to do with the cake that disappeared while you were sleeping. But if, say, we were to wander into our kitchen after dark, we would want something that whips up in ten minutes flat. Something rich and quick and good for the soul. Hypothetically speaking, of course.
For those late-night munchies, we rounded up our essential snacks, both sweet and savory, creamy and crisp. Some of them are innocent indulgences; others are decidedly wicked -- but all of them will hold you over until morning. Here’s to you, fellow night owls. Your secret is safe with us.
