12 Midnight Snacks

October 20, 2014

This post is brought to you by our friends at Weight Watchers, who celebrate gathering together around the table to enjoy wholesome, beautiful food.

It's the perfect fall evening: You cook dinner, make cocktails with friends, and wind down by browsing some new cookbooks. Next thing you know, three or four hours have passed and you're hungry again. It's the best time to have a midnight treat before a good night's rest.

Maybe you're thirsty for something warm and drinkable, or maybe you're in the mood for a cheesy sandwich. Are you craving ice cream in October? Go for it. There isn't a formula for the perfect midnight snack (but you're probably not going to start slow cooking at such a late hour). So whip up a quick bite with these 12 recipes and celebrate the wee hours.

Pepperoncini, chocolate chip cookies, and milk. Yes, all three together : )
