Experience March Munchie Madness

0

March is full of holidays that celebrate various forms of munchable treats. No strangers to the munchies, the team at Marijuana.com thought it would be fun to use these holidays as inspiration for easy-yet-delicious creations even the most beginner of home cooks can make. The most complicated thing we used to assemble these munchie delights was a microwave.

You don’t need to be a Michelin star chef to pay homage to National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day, National Cereal Day, Popcorn Lover’s Day or National Potato Chip Day. Just grab some simple ingredients and enjoy! Also, shout out to Lucky Charms, who set the cereal consumer world atwitter this week by announcing the addition of a unicorn charm to replace the hourglass.

What you’ll need

  • A bag of Kettle Cooked Potato Chips
  • 2 Tbsp Nutella
  • 1 tsp Hot Water
  • Bowl

Instructions

Put 2 Tbsp of Nutella into a bowl. Add 1 tsp hot water and stir until it’s fully incorporated. Allow the dip to cool before dipping. If the consistency of the cooled mixture is too thick, add an additional tsp of warm water at a time until the desired consistency is reached.

 

Full disclosure: While photographing this snack, we realized we were out of regular potato chips and substituted “Dirty” Potato Chips Jalapeno Heat chips. It wasn’t bad.
