20 Snacks You Need for Your Next Netflix Binge
The Sweet: Chocolaty PB & J Cheesecake
This strawberry jam-crowned peanut butter cheesecake is ready for its moment in the spotlight! Although you can’t tell when the cake is whole, there’s a plot twist hiding inside: mini chocolate chips.
The Sweet: Brie-Apple Quesadillas
Our Brie-licious snack wraps are as cheesy as the Netflix rom-com category (and just as satisfying!). Creamy Brie cheese gets wrapped up with crunchy nuts and a touch of brown sugar until melted to golden, bubbly perfection in a crispy tortilla. Plus, there's the all-important caramel-sauce drizzle.
The Sweet: Pumpkin Pie Pillows
Couch pillows are good, but you know what’s even better? Pillows made out of DESSERT. Yep, these pretty, puffy treats taste just like pumpkin pie, although you probably won’t want to rest your head on a drizzle of brown butter glaze.
The Sweet: Caramel Snack Mix
Just as every great movie comes with a surprise twist at the end, our easy party snack mix is hiding a delicious secret: It's coated in a sweet caramel sauce that perfectly balances savory pretzels and nuts.
The Sweet: Peanut Butter-Banana Trifles
If chef documentaries top your Netflix queue, you'll love the culinary creativity of yogurt, peanut butter, and honey whipped to delicious perfection in our supereasy five-ingredient snack. It gets extra texture points for its one-two punch of fresh bananas and crunchy granola.
The Savory: Pizza Quesadilla
Just like it's tough to choose between a comedy and a drama, it's nearly impossible to side with Italian or Mexican cuisine. This mash-up snack allows you to enjoy both in one convenient, no-utensils-required package.
The Savory: Cauliflower and Harissa Hummus
Fans of thrillers (read: those ready to sweat!) will fall for this H-O-T hummus recipe. Blend your own harissa paste so you can customize how many peppers are included. We say the more the better—just like the screams in the movie!
The Savory: Mini Everything Bagel Pizzas
You can't Netflix all day if you don't start in the morning! Kick off a brunch-time TV binge with these New York bagel-inspired single-serving pizzas. They're even cheesier than your favorite chick flick ... and that's a good thing.
The Savory: Pineapple-Black Bean Guacamole
One bite of our unexpectedly great pineapple-studded guacamole turns your ordinary weeknight Netflix routine into a south-of-the-border fiesta. Go ahead and invite your friends over, because the party is just getting started.
The Savory: Bacon-Stuffed Mushrooms
With bacon and two varities of cheese in the scrumptious filling, you're probably going to need a double batch of these delicious bite-sized snacks to make it through a marathon. Actually, who are we kidding? Probably to make it through one episode.
The Sinless: Strawberry-Banana Donuts
With half as much sugar as your typical donut—not to mention way less fat—these baked donuts will keep you fueled without the energy roller coaster. Your emotions are probably doing enough of that thanks to what’s on screen!
The Sinless: Peanut Butter-Chocolate Cookie Dough Dip
A little sweet, a little salty, a little creamy ... this dessert dip has even better balance than a best picture’s ensemble cast. Plus, because it’s made with protein-rich cannellini beans and whole grain oats, you don’t have to feel guilty about snacking on it during the entire saga.
The Sinless: Paleo Cashew Truffles
Sure, your binge might involve lounging on the couch all day, but you won't feel nearly as guilty about doing so if you snack on some nutrition-packed paleo truffles. While they take a bit of time to chill and set, you can breeze through another episode or two whileyou await the grand finale: completed chocolate energy bites!
The Sinless: Frozen Banana Bites
Our simple dark chocolate-drizzled banana slices have achieved the snacking trifecta: totally munchable, easy to prepare, and healthy, too. Even better, they keep for up to three days, so you can save some for your next movie marathon.
The Sinless: Baked Chile Sweet Potato and Beet Chips
When you're ready for a break from the popcorn, try these crunchy oven-baked veggie chips. Dunk 'em in guac, salsa, or cheese dip. While you might stumble upon a weak plot, you'll have a strong flavor pairing with any of those picks when you add these low-cal chips.
The OMG!!!: Soft S'more Cookies
It's pretty much impossible to both Netflix-binge and roast a marshmallow for s'mores at the same time. Until now. Our chocolate-and-marshmallow-topped chocolate chip cookies let you roast your upgraded s'mores to melty perfection without leaving your couch.
The OMG!!!: Carnival Cookie Fries
The theater certainly doesn’t offer any concessions this next-level. These crispy, colorful cookie fries are as camera-ready as a red carpet star.
The OMG!!!: Safe-to-Eat Monster Cookie Dough
Speaking of colorful, this cookie dough dip is a rainbow delight with sprinkles and candy-coated chocolate pieces. Enjoy with a vanilla wafer cookie, pretzel twist, or a spoon. Hey, Netflix zone = no judgement zone!
The OMG!!!: Cheeseburger Slider Dip
Why fuss over hamburger patties when you can stir together a slow cooker dip that tastes as incredible as the fast food fave? Spoon this deliciously cheesy dip on fries, chips, or toasted baguette slices. Whatever you do, don’t forget the pickles! They’re as crucial in this recipe as a villain is in the on-screen plot.
The OMG!!!: Ice Cream Tacos
Get them before they melt! Just like the chocolate tacos served at fairs and drive-in movies, this frozen dessert stars a chocolate-coated cone "shell." Then get ready for the award-worthy finale: a cherry on top.
