Forget all those fancy steakhouse dinners, French bistro lunches and sushi happy hours, we all know that some of the tastiest meals are grabbed from the refrigerator late at night. So, just in time to celebrate the midnight feast, we’re dipping into the cookie jar, sneaking a slice of cheesecake and cracking the lid on the ice cream carton to count down our top ten treats, sweetest indulgences and most iconic late night snacks. Shhh, don’t wake the kids!

They’re chocolaty, they’re gooey and when the clock strikes hungry they are quite simply the perfect way to end the day. We’re talking about chocolate brownies of course, one of the ultimate evening snacks. What makes them perfectly sneakily snack worthy? If you don’t want to get busted sneaking an extra dose of chocolate heaven, you can dip into a pan and cut small slice after small slice without either exactly knowing how much you’re indulging and still leave enough brownies for the rest of the family. Yum!
- Cookie Monster
Mom gave you milk to help you get to sleep and today’s no different, come the evening, there’s something simply perfect about ending the day with a tall glass of the white stuff. The best pairing for any glass of evening milk? Cookies of course!
