If you’ve ever found yourself desperately searching for slow-cooker snacks for PMS/period munchies to no avail, you’re in luck. It’s come to our attention that there’s a real need for more period snack content out there. Naturally, we’re here to fill that gap.
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.

3. Spicy Hamburger Cheese Dip
This cheesy slow-cooker hamburger dip hits all the bases: It’s spicy, creamy, meaty and pairs well with crunchy chips.

This spiced slow-cooker trail mix has flavors you won’t find in the packaged stuff.
8. Muddy Buddies
Sometimes, the only thing that hits the spot are muddy buddies—pieces of cereal covered in peanut butter, chocolate and powdered sugar. (You might know them as “puppy chow”—or by some other name entirely.)

This guest-worthy slow-cooker blueberry peach cobbler also makes a great snack. You can use fresh fruit in the summer, but frozen also works just fine.

16. White Chocolate Muddy Buddies
White chocolate is basically just cream and sugar. That’s definitely not a problem.
