Over the Christmas period we are far more likely to have a few more late nights than normal. Things like the office Christmas party, getting together with friends and family and maybe even taking in a festive show or concert could all see us getting home very late and in some cases a little peckish with the need to have a midnight snack.
So just what late night munchies would be the perfect thing over the festive period that we could eat in bed before drifting off to sleep, without the need to change the sheets, covering our Oz Mattress, due to messy spills?
We all spend our time in the run up to Christmas baking plenty of Christmas goodies - it’s great to have something in for when unexpected guests pop over and they can also prove to be very handy when you have a case of the midnight munchies following an evening out. Why not make a huge batch of your favourite recipe Christmas cookies with the kids, they should store for a while in airtight tins, ensuring there is always a snack on hand.
Not the ones still in their shells, but the pre-shelled kind – nobody really wants to be trying to go to sleep with sharp bits of shell in the bed. We always have them in the house at Christmas and filled with protein they make the perfect late night snack.
3. Turkey sandwich
Christmas isn’t Christmas without a turkey sandwich. So, take the opportunity whilst there is still plenty of turkey left and indulge in a late night festive snack, maybe even add a bit of stuffing or cranberry just be careful not to drop any on the Oz Mattress bed!
Popcorn is a fantastic snack at any time, and whether you pop your own or buy the ready-made variety there are plenty of different flavours to try, so there is sure to be something to appeal to even the fussiest midnight snacker.
There are always lots of chocolates and sweets in the house during Christmas, it’s so easy to just grab a handful to munch when you are feeling peckish. If chocolate is your midnight snack of choice, then go for individual chocolates that you can eat in one go rather than a big bar that could crumble and melt all over your covers.
Of course, it’s not always a great idea to snack in the night, but as a one-off over Christmas, we’re sure it’ll be ok!
