5 Enticing Midnight Snacks
Check out these five treats that are sure to satisfy when the midnight chime strikes.
Popcorn with Brown Butter and Parmesan

Easy Chocolate-Mint Ice-cream Sandwiches
There are those who politely tackle their ice cream cravings with a bowl and spoon, and then there are those who take it to a whole new level. These homemade ice cream sandwiches are chewy, crunchy, creamy, and full of minty flavor. Only passionate ice cream lovers need apply!
Hummus is a great midnight snack because it's big on flavor and low on calories. For this homemade version, simply puree chickpeas with garlic and tahini, add fresh lemon juice for a splash of citrus flavor, and finish with olive oil for that familiar creamy texture. Settle in on the couch with some pretzels and pita chips, then call it a night.
