Now, it’s important to keep in mind that slow-cooker snacks for period munchies do take a little foresight. They cook, well, slowly. You’ll need to gather your ingredients and toss them together at least a few hours in advance. That said, the upside is that there’s really nothing more to it. You just set it, forget it and wait to dig in.

It should also be said that everyone has different period cravings, and some people with periods might not get related cravings at all. The list below is filled with decadent sweet and savory snacks you can make in a slow cooker. If one or several of them look delicious to you, great! Stock up on the ingredients and get them cooking. If not, go ahead and feed those period munchies in whatever way feels best to you.
