We'd like to think that our snacking game is strong — stronger than our breakfast, lunch, and dinner game, tbh. Snacks are sexier than most all other meals: They can be salty, crunchy, savory, and when they want, they can be sweet.

And although we have nothing against all the glorious bags of Doritos out there, sometimes we just want a good old homemade nosh. A snack that is better than good (we're looking at you carrot sticks and hummus), we're talking about a snack that is damn delicious. Pull out your shopping lists and ready your favorite pen because each one of these ten delectable recipes can be made ahead, tailored to your specific tastes, and packed for on-the-go fuel. Here's to snacking all season long.
