12 recipes to make for midnight snacking

There's nothing worse than an empty fridge when you come down with a case of the munchies

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 November? 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.
