It usually kicks in once my day has decided to unwind…my fingers start itching to get in the kitchen and find a little snack. Munchies are my favorite way to spend a little “me” time, either zoning out on a good movie or concentrating hard on my next post. It’s that snack at the end of the evening that is the most satisfying. I know some people like to munch while playing video games and others will just place snacks on the kitchen table to pick at as they pass by. Doesn’t matter what your munching style is, here are 26 snacks that you won’t stop eating.
1. LOADED NACHOS
Authentic nachos… simple and loaded with carne asada, beans, and cheese. Pair with a glob of guacamole and eat till your hearts content! Get the recipe here on Babble.
2. MAPLE BACON POPCORN

3. CHEESY BACON JALAPENO CRESENT BITES
Usually these tasty appetizers don’t make it past an hour when served on a tray, but if for some awesome reason the snack gods decide to spare a few, and you run into them in your fridge … well you are in luck for a great late night munchie.
