10 Snacks to Enjoy After 8 p.m.

To keep busy during the Quebec-wide curfew, or because there’s nothing in the pantry to munch on in the evenings, here are 10 snack recipes to eat after 8 p.m.

Requiring few ingredients, you should be able to create most of these without having to wait until the next morning to purchase ingredients when stores have reopened. We know: we all get a sudden craving for something sweet or salty occasionally, which is why we’ve come up with this list. Enjoy!

Sweet Snacks

1. Mint-Chocolate Tartlets

Reminiscent of After Eights (get it?), these delicious tartlets are great to enjoy after curfew. It’s a fun kitchen project, letting you forget what’s going on outside (or what’s not going on outside) for a few moments.

2. Brownie in a Cup

Cooking: 40 seconds. Cooling: 5 minutes. Prep time: 5 minutes. This is what we call an efficient dessert.

3. Chia Pudding

Simple, healthful and extremely tasty, this chia pudding can easily be reinterpreted using your favourite ingredients!

4. Caramelized Banana Split

This is a suggestion for those of you looking for the ultimate evening snack. Easy to make, you’ll no longer let your bananas sit on the counter to brown!

5. Silken Tofu and Mango Verrines

If you want to go off the beaten path, try this healthy treat, perfect for those with diabetes, lactose intolerance or celiac disease.

Salty Snacks

6. Vegan Lime and Black Pepper Popcorn

Treat yourselves to a surprising taste by adding nutritional yeast to popcorn, which provides a cheese-like flavour. A simple recipe with an absolutely delicious result.

7. Spicy Roasted Chickpeas

A classic, these spicy chickpeas are great when you’re looking for a salty protein kick after 8 p.m.

8. Roasted Nuts with Honey and Sumac

Are there any sports fans in the house? Given that stadium matches aren’t happening at the moment, bring the stadium (or at least, its food vendors!) home with these roasted nuts.

9. Kale Chips and Seasonings

The corner store is closed and you’ve got a bunch of kale in the fridge? Make some kale chips. Ready in less time than it takes to say it, you’ll be hard-pressed to not consider it during your next chip craving!

10. Cheddar Cheese Crackers

Flash back to your childhood with these homemade cheddar crackers. With this recipe, you’ll fulfill your snacking needs for the rest of the week! You don’t even need to run out to the store before curfew hits to satiate that nightly craving.
