With almost everyone forced to stay at home now, most people find themselves with plenty of time to spend catching up on TV series or movies, both new and older releases. And what’s the fun of binge-watching without some snacks to munch on?
Here we list down several easy to make recipes (time to get some groceries delivered if you’re missing the ingredients!), some are wholesome snacks for the whole family, some are more suitable for adults only. Choose wisely and enjoy the snacks!

Grab a bunch of different flavoured M&M’s (or any candy of your choice) and pour them all into one bowl. The fun is in not knowing what flavour you’ll be getting every time you reach for one!
